BE2015 to address consolidation

The bodyshop Event and Awards 2015 (BE2015) is set to include a topical debate addressing the current swathe of consolidation sweeping the sector.

Taking place on Friday 25 September, the session – Consolidation – what does it mean? – is one of four sessions confirmed as part of the daytime event programme.

With what would appear as the consolidation of the bodyshop sector now in full flow with some major recent acquisition activity having taken place, what does it mean for business throughout the sector? Is now the time to change your business model or simply sit tight and let the wind blow over? This session will discuss the swathe of change taking place right now within the UK sector and address the subject matters at the forefront of everyone’s minds. With such a pace of change currently awash within the sector, who knows what the latest talking point will be?

The panel discussing one of the hottest topics within the industry right now features: Robert Snook, director, BSG; Dom Napier, commercial director, Elevation Group, and Chris McKie, director – network development, Vizion Network Ltd.

The bodyshop Event and Awards 2015 takes place at the stunning Celtic Manor Resort, Newport on 24-25 September. Make sure you are part of this very special occasion by booking your place now by calling Nicola Keady or Poppy Allard on 01296 642800 or email: or
