Leesburg, Virginia -- November 29, 2016 -- Women from across the collision repair industry will head to Denver, Colorado in 2017 for the next Women's Industry Network (WIN) Educational Conference. The 2017 event will take place May 8 to 10 at the Westin Denver Downtown Hotel.
Located in the vibrant LoDo District, a statement from WIN says the venue will provide plenty of opportunities for attendees to experience many offerings of the Mile-High City.
“Last year we enjoyed our highest number of attendees at conference,” says Wendy Rogers, Co-Chair of the Conference Planning Committee. “With this exciting venue in Denver we hope to exceed that number.”
In addition to the professional development programming, the Educational Conference will once again feature the Most Influential Women (MIW) and scholarship awards as part of the celebratory gala dinner, as well as the Annual Scholarship Walk fundraiser. Program specifics will be published as they become available.
The MIW program has recognized over 80 women who have enriched the collision repair industry with their leadership, vision, and commitment to excellence since it was first established in 1999.
Nominations for this year's award opened on November 1, 2016 and will close on December 30, 2016. The winners will be recognized at a gala held during the 2017 WIN Educational Conference. Nominations of women working in any segment of the collision repair industry across Canada and the US are welcomed. WIN membership is not a requirement for nomination.
“The 2017 WIN Educational Conference marks the 11th year of successful collaborations among WIN volunteers, members and sponsors. Our goal is always to provide the WIN membership and the collision industry a highly professional educational experience centered on professional networking, advancing business acumen and growing collision industry connections,” says Petra Schroeder, WIN’s Chair. “It’s exciting to see the plans underway by WIN member volunteers to deliver quality conference content, honour women in the industry and connect WIN members.”
