Last month the Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) announced the launch of an online marketplace called SEMA360, to allow manufacturers and resellers in the specialty automotive segment to connect and conduct business. The eMarketplace will take place 2-6 November, in the absence of the 2020 SEMA Show that typically takes place in Las Vegas.
The Society of Collision Repair Specialists (SCRS) is pleased to announce that it will continue the decade-long collaboration with SEMA with the online delivery of the Repairer Driven Education (RDE) series in conjunction with SEMA360. RDE will take place the same days as SEMA360.
“Education has always been a distinctive highlight of our ongoing partnership, and we are thrilled to see the innovative approach our colleagues at SEMA are taking to address the industry’s need for connectivity,” said Brett Bailey, SCRS Chairman. “SCRS has been hard at work with our speakers and subject matter experts in transitioning our program in a way that harnesses the same great value the industry has come to expect from the information in our sessions, but to do so in a way that capitalises on an exciting opportunity to reach more in our industry from their shop floor, in a way that still feels more elevated than a typical online education program many have become accustomed to over the past several months.”
SCRS Full Series Logins to the RDE experience will now provide a week-long access to SCRS’ collision repair education program, and greater accessibility to all employees within the repair facility, for the same $US375 that a single individual would have previously invested during the SEMA Show. In addition, participating businesses will have ongoing access to archived sessions after they have aired.
