HD Repair Forum opens registration for 2023 conference

Jan. 16, 2023
The conference will take place in April 2023 in Texas, offering a collision-focused event for shop owners, managers, lead technicians, estimators, and executives from OEMs, insurance, and appraisal companies.

On April 18 and 19, 2023, members of the heavy-duty and medium-duty collision repair industry will travel from all parts of North America to hear the latest information on collision industry trends and how technology is redefining the industry.

The HD Repair Forum for 2023 will be a two-day conference that returns to the historic Hilton in downtown Fort Worth, Texas, and will follow a similar format as in years past. This will include presentations and panel discussions involving OEMs, repair experts, insurers, and other collision industry leaders. Unique to the event are a diverse set of focused learning tracks, providing more in-depth information on topics that address the industry’s repair demands and business growth opportunities.

Similar to previous Heavy-Duty Repair Forums, the advisory board plays a critical role in developing the agenda, speakers, and content, all of which has not yet been released to the public. But this has not delayed attendees' interest in the event.

“I’ve been attending the HD Repair Forum since its inception in 2018,” said Rodney Rowland, body shop manager at Lakeside Trucks in Wisconsin. “It has become the place for the leaders in the industry to gather to share knowledge, identify trends, and drive improvement for the entire industry.”

Registration for the event is now open. Early registration discounts and group hotel rates are available for a limited time. To access registration and gather more information go to
