On July 16, 2014, leaders of the restyling and accessory world will converge at SEMA headquarters in Southern California. Join the Professional Restylers Organization as they hold their Long Range Planning Meeting and Industry discussion. The SEMA Garage Industry Innovations Center will play host as leading manufacturers, WD’s, installers, and restyling professionals discuss the future of the industry and develop strategies that SEMA and the PRO Select Committee will use in addressing the challenges and opportunities confronting your business.
Your insight and perspective is critical. Whether your business has been impacted by new trends in auto sales and discretionary spending, vehicle technology, installation concerns, or if there is a need to identify markets for expansion – your business will benefit by being in the room when these and other topics are discussed.
The meeting is open to all employees of PRO-member companies, as well as those interested in joining PRO. The day will include a joint networking luncheon with members of the Light Truck Accessory Alliance (LTAA) council.
