PRE-CONFERENCE MEET & GREET
SEPTEMBER 16, 6:30 PM–8:30 PM

If you arrive early and have some free time Sunday evening, come say hello to the FenderBender team. We’ll be hanging out in the bar area of Harry Caray’s at the conference hotel.
 

KICKOFF & AWARDS PARTY
SEPTEMBER 17, 5:00 PM–6:30 PM

Join us as we kickoff the conference with some fun, food and networking—Chicago-style! We’ll also honor the 2018 FenderBender Award winners and give a toast to a special group of shop operators. 
 

THE BIG NETWORKING PARTY
SEPTEMBER 18, 6:00 PM–8:30 PM

This is your time to let loose after a long day of learning! We’re taking you offsite for a night of food, fun and supercharged networking with your new friends. There will be a lot of energy and a lot of fun.

COCKTAIL & NETWORKING HOURS
SEPTEMBER 17–19, TIMES VARY

Take a breather, grab a drink, and go back over notes from your sessions with other shop operators. This is also a great time to seek out the speakers and ask them follow-up questions. Here's to the next step!

 

Speakers

Learn directly from real shop operators who have achieved real success in this industry. More like mentors than speakers, they are part of the entire event, so you can not only learn from them, but also connect with them one-on-one.
