SCRS Encourages Attendance for Repairer Driven Education and the 2019 SEMA Show

Mechanicsville, Virginia, October 7, 2019 – Society of Collision Repair Specialists (SCRS) encourages collision repair businesses interested in attending Repairer Driven Education (RDE) sessions during the 2019 SEMA Show, to take advantage of the early registration deadlines for the best pricing. Registering on or before Friday, October 11 provides distinct advantages with discounted rates and more efficient processing.

Repairer Driven Education at the SEMA Show takes place Monday through Friday, November 4 – November 8, in Las Vegas, Nevada. To Register for SCRS’ Repairer Driven Education, visit

SEMA reports that those who register on or before the October 11 deadline can save $50 on their show badge. Additionally, those who plan to add the RDE package will save an extra $25 on full series passes, and $10 on individually selected courses.

In addition to the financial savings that come with early registration, attendees in the US and Canada will also receive their show badge and course selection tickets in the mail prior to the Show. This reduces time in lines and at registration, increasing time on the show floor and in classrooms once on site.

To qualify for a Buyer badge, applicants may be required to submit proof of employment in the industry. Prior-year approval does not automatically guarantee approval for a badge this year, and qualifying materials may still be required.
