It greatly excites your favorite friendly neighborhood Tucson body shop to hear that the two influential Google Automotive executives will headline the 2016 IBIS Global Summit in Barcelona, Spain May 23-25 with what promises to be an insightful keynote presentation.

Having a finger on the automotive industry’s pulse is essential to our Tucson body shop always providing customers with excellent service on every visit. Google analytical lead Tanja Hufschmidt and industry leader Richard Offermann represent two of the driving wheels in the globally influential tech company’s pioneering automotive forays from insurance shopping to versatile multimedia user interfaces, navigation apps, and even groundbreaking strides in autonomously guided vehicles.

Given this year’s IBIS Global Summit’s “Changing Future Landscapes” theme, Google’s penchant for industry-disrupting innovation and leadership made their representatives obvious choices to headline the event’s first morning at Barcelona’s beautiful Hilton Diagonal Mar Hotel. Meanwhile, IBIS has also added sessions featuring Autoglass sales and marketing director Neil Atherton exploring groundbreaking Advanced Driver Assistance System (ADAS) developments across the industry and, of particular interest to our own Tucson body shop, I-CAR president and CEO John Van Alstyne addressing the key pillars of training tomorrow’s collision repair experts.

The IBIS Global Summit champions industry-wide values of exceptional skills, consummate safety, and uncompromising quality standards. Tickets include two nights’ accommodations May 23 and 25 with full access to the Welcome Reception on May 23, the full May 24 conference including lunch, breaks and International Dinner, and the May 25 half-day conference and delegate’s lunch. The event is an impressive collaboration between IBIS and a network of global partners including 3M, AkzoNobel, Audatex, EMM, Enterprise Rent-A-Car, Fix Auto World, and most recently, Belron.
