The Montana Collision Repair Association (MCRA) is pleased to announce its Bi-Annual Rocky Mountain Trade Show and Educational Conference. The theme this year is “Vision 2020 the future is clear.” The event will be held in Billings, Montana on April 3rd and 4th at the Billings Hotel and Convention Center. This event is FREE for collision repairers. The trade show will feature top notch speakers and vendors from all over the country. Shops from all over are welcome to join us in a weekend full of education and camaraderie. All we ask is that you register in advance so we can accommodate all of the attendees. The MCRA is looking forward to having you join us for the largest gathering of collision repairers in a 4 state area.
Thanks to everyone’s wonderful feedback we are pleased to announce that the 2020 trade show will follow a very similar format with a trade show and educational conference. Shops and vendors will have access to attend the FREE Friday night Meet and Greet by Denny Menholt. The Denny Menholt Meet and Greet will include live music, drinks, and heavy hors d’oeuvres. This will be an excellent opportunity for shops and vendors to introduce themselves and mingle with body shop owners and managers. We have also moved the event to the Billings Hotel and Convention Center based on previous attendee’s feedback.
The MCRA is very aware of the collision technician shortage our industry is facing. We want to do our best to help “spark” a student’s interest in a career in the automotive industry. That is why a portion of this event will be free and open to the public. MSU Billings will also host a booth to share information about their collision repair program. We know how important your time is, and that is why the MCRA will not open the trade show to the public until later in the afternoon on Saturday the 4th.
We look forward to seeing you and your team April 3rdand 4th of 2020 for the Bi-Annual Rocky Mountain Trade Show and Educational Conference.
