The New Zealand Collision Repair Association (CRA) expects to have approximately 250 Kiwi’s in Melbourne for the 2017 Collision Repair Expo.

The Association has timed its annual conference to coincide with the event. Said CRA general manager Neil Pritchard; “This Expo is to my mind more beneficial to collision repairers in our part of the world than either SEMA or NACE, which are both held the US. While the two US events are worth attending for the experience, the Expo has far more relevance for local repairers. The organisers are to be congratulated on the number of exhibitors and the high standard of seminars that they have organized.”

As well as the CRA contingent there will be many other New Zealand repairers and suppliers, all keen to see the latest and greatest as they try to keep their businesses relevant in this rapidly changing industry. Added incentives to visit Melbourne are the International I-CAR meeting, the Collision Repairer Lifetime Achievement Awards Breakfast, and of course the nightlife and shopping in this diverse cosmopolitan city.

Editor: It will be great to welcome our peers from New Zealand to the Expo. The CRA are holding their annual conference in conjunction with the Expo which is a tremendous endorsement of the Expo and I am sure appreciated by the organizers.
