Reap the Rewards: ARA’s virtual Convention and Trade Show kicks off, live events running through Nov. 13

Charlotte, North Carolina — The Automotive Recyclers Association (ARA) has officially kicked off its virtual Convention and Trade Show, which will feature key industry insights and information for auto recyclers.

The three-day event, beginning Nov. 11 and running through Nov. 13., features several different ‘rooms,’ including a networking and engagement centre where attendees can chat and book appointments; an auditorium featuring daily speaker sessions, educational workshops and facility tours; an Expo Hall chock-full of vendors and services, a resource centre and much, much more.

“ARA has worked hard to design a virtual experience that will ring true to what you have come to expect, one that will deliver information, education and opportunity to automotive recyclers from all around the world⁠—even in the midst of a global pandemic,” said Scott Robertson, ARA president during his opening address Wednesday. 

Some sessions of interest include Surviving 2020, which will feature a discussion between auto recyclers on COVID-19’s impact on the sector; The Future of Auto Recycling, which will take a look at how recyclers will cope with advancing vehicle technology like ADAS and artificial intelligence estimating applications; and Electric and Hybrid Vehicles⁠—a New Chapter, where Andy Latham, founder and CEO of Salvage Wire will discuss the latest insights into the safe handling and recycling of high-voltage batteries.

There are two keynote speakers slated for the event. On Thursday at 12 p.m. EST, Blake Stratton of Michael Hyatt & Co. will deliver The Double Win, where he will outline his four-step system for growing your business. 

The closing keynote⁠—Pointman in Business and Life, scheduled for Nov. 13 at 3:30 EST⁠—will feature U.S. Navy veteran Jason Redman and his strategies for developing your own “Pointman intellect.” 

The event also features several Tech Talks from show sponsors like Buddy AI, Car-Part.com, eBay, Hollander, Rebuilders Automotive Supply and CCC Pinnacle, where attendees can learn about the latest advancements and offerings from each company. 

Finally, the Convention and Trade Show features a silent auction with items like a three-night stay at the Peppermill in Reno, dinner for two at Bimini’s steak house and a round-trip for two on Southwest Airlines, courtesy of Sandy Blalock, executive director of the ARA.
