On Wednesday, July 16, SEMA’s Truck and Off-Road Alliance (TORA) and Professional Restylers Organization (PRO) will each host meetings at the SEMA Garage–Industry Innovations Center in Diamond Bar, California, to discuss the industry and plan for the future.
Members of the light-truck and restyling markets will gather to discuss the industry and plan for the future, Wednesday, July 16. SEMA’s Truck and Off-Road Alliance (TORA) and Professional Restylers Organization (PRO) will each host meetings from 9:00 a.m.–2:00 p.m., with a break for a joint networking lunch between the groups.
The 2014 meetings will be held at the SEMA Garage–Industry Innovations Center in Diamond Bar, California—the first time in several years the groups have met on the West Coast. Members of the different niches SEMA represents will be able to ask questions and share ideas in a relaxed atmosphere. Common discussion topics are new trends in auto sales and discretionary spending, vehicle technology, government regulations and opportunities for market expansion. A long-range planning component also gives participants the chance to speak to the future of the group by exploring challenges and opportunities for business. If a company cannot send its members to the event in person, web meeting and conference call options are available.
Companies that haven’t yet invested in a council are welcome to join the conversation and learn what they could gain from membership. Contact Clayton Drescher with questions about the event, and register for the TORA meeting or PRO meeting today.
