The 2019 FenderBender Management Conference is coming home. For the first time, we will host our event right in our hometown of Minneapolis-St. Paul—and we have a lot of exciting changes and tweaks in store that will help you take your business to the next level.
Stay tuned for announcements, and catch up on all that happened at our event in 2018 by clicking the button below!
BONUS: When you register this year, you will also be given access to our Facebook Group where you can continue networking and continue the discussion.
All collision repair shop decision makers—from owners and managers to estimators and CSRs—no matter the size of the operation.
Single- and multiple-location independent and dealership body shop decision makers who are looking to grow and improve their businesses and employees.
The simpler question may be: why not? Aside from being the home to 10 Missions Media, publisher of FenderBender, the Twin Cities of Minneapolis and St. Paul offer a unique blend of urban city life and the great outdoors.
Come into town early. Stay late. Bring the family. There's plenty to do:
With a revamped lineup covering the industry's most pressing topics, the 2019 FenderBender Management Conference will be more personalized and in-depth than ever before. The conference will feature more than 20 strategy sessions and a unique blend of workshops, group discussions and panels, each focused on a different aspect of running a body shop.
Stay tuned for updates!
Our agenda will be loaded with learning opportunities, but not all of your takeaways will come in a session room. Everyone will have the opportunity to speak with fellow attendees, speakers and sponsors during the conference's various networking sessions, happy hours, receptions and more.
Updates to come!
Learn tangible strategies directly from real shop operators who have achieved real success in this industry. With an ever-growing list of speakers at this year’s FenderBender Management Conference, there will be plenty of opportunities to not only learn from them, but also connect with them one-on-one.
Check back for an updated list!
2019 FenderBender Management Conference registration will kick off Feb. 4, 2019. Until then, be sure to sign up for our update list to make sure you stay on top of everything you need to know to get the most out of the conference in 2019.
The 2019 FenderBender Management Conference will be at the Hilton Minneapolis/St. Paul Airport Mall of America. We have a limited number of discounted rooms, so register early and reserve your room for the biggest savings. Rooms will sell out.
And keep in mind that the Hilton Minneapolis/St. Paul Airport Mall of America is:
A five-minute free shuttle ride from MSP International Airport, which means easy travel to and from the hotel and no need for a rental car.
Just a two-block free shuttle ride (or walk) from the Mall of America, which aside from the most diverse and immense shopping in the U.S., also boasts an indoor amusement park, aquarium, and dozens of restaurants and bars. And Mall of America has a light rail stop that can take you to both downtowns—Minneapolis and St. Paul—which, again, means there is no need for a rental car.
Across the street from the Minnesota Valley National Wildlife Refuge, a 14,000-acre preserve that runs 70 miles along the Minnesota River. While you’re unlikely to take in all it has to offer, there are paved paths less than 100 feet from the Hilton’s lobby that are perfect for walking, biking and running.
