The Society of Collision Repair Specialists (SCRS) announced that pre-registration for its Repairer Driven Education (RDE) series at the SEMA Show is tracking a nearly 300 percent increase in registrations through the end of July.

“The first two years of the RDE program brought a lot of very positive response from the attendees, and we believe that the numbers clearly indicate that our program at the SEMA Show is delivering exactly what the industry is looking for right now,” shared SCRS Chairman Aaron Clark. “We have worked hard to put together a program that specifically addresses solutions to existing business conditions, and are glad to see the industry responding with early approval!”

SCRS has also reported expansion in the participant demographics. In addition to a large independent collision repair attendee base from the U.S., 2012 numbers have indicated notable additional growth in participation from Multi-Shop Operators (MSO), as well as from international automotive businesses currently representing more than a dozen different countries.

Show management numbers through the end of July indicated an increase in both collision industry exhibitor counts, as well as double digit growth in square footage occupied by exhibiting collision industry companies.
