SCRS Releases New Videos from IDEAS Collide Showcase

Mechanicsville, Virginia, May 16, 2019 – If you were unable to join the Society of Collision Repair Specialists (SCRS) during the inaugural IDEAS Collide Showcase at the 2018 SEMA Show, the association has been steadily releasing footage of the presentations from the event.

The newest video, released on May 16th, features Pete Tagliapietra of NuGen IT, asking the audience to “imagine a ‘Big Data’ information database for the collision repair ecosystem.”

The IDEAS Collide Showcase was developed to create a venue for speakers willing to explore ideas worthy of consideration, and capable of conveying those ideas in a condensed timeframe of 10 minutes or less. Other videos that have been released to date include:

Matthew Doude | MSU Center for Advanced Vehicular Systems

Dan Langford | Nevada Center for Advanced Mobility

Scott Ulnick | DuckerFrontier

Speakers for the 2019 IDEAS Collide Showcase have not been announced, but reservation is available for those wishing to ensure a seat in one of the most fascinating collision repair events of the year. Click here to register.
