Thatcham Research will showcase the bodyshop of the future at its Repair Focus conference.
The June 14th event will bring manufacturers, insurers and repairers together to discuss future trends, challenges and opportunities.
Hosted at Thatcham’s research centre, Repair Focus aims to provide the crash repair industry with the knowledge and insight to shape their own business models over the next 12-36 months.
Visitors will see first-hand the practical repair challenges presented by modern vehicles, including mixed materials, power-trains and safety technology.
Thatcham experts will also be on hand in a live working environment to show how new repair methods are developed alongside exhibitors such as Hella Gutmann and Spanesi.
Matthew Wright, Thatcham’s head of commercial services, said: “As ever Repair Focus will feature a high quality line up of speakers and a range of opportunities for opinions from across the industry and beyond to be heard and considered.”
