What drives the market?

Schadentalk Lecture

No interminably long lectures, no empty phrases. Collision Talk goes to the heart of the themes critical to the sector, with these themes discussed in individual conversations with talk guests and new approaches sought. Ultimately, it is all about information content, which should be easy to understand, comprehensive and practically relevant.

The talk guests are important decision makers in the field of collision repair: insurers, claim managers, associations or manufacturers. Visiting Collision Talk gives you the opportunity to find out more information and establish valuable new contacts. In addition, ‘Collision Repair Street’ features suppliers presenting products for process optimisation.

Whilst Collision Talk is focussed on the big picture, ‘Collision Repair Street’ narrows down on the detail, such as reducing cost, increasing productivity and learning new ideas for daily business optimisation. In doing so Collision Repair Street covers all essential areas of automotive repair.
