Toronto, Ontario — Gear up, auto recyclers— registration for next year’s OARA convention is now open.
Next year’s event will be held from Thursday, March 26 through Sunday, March 29 at the Hilton Mississauga/Meadowvale in Mississauga, Ont. It will feature a portfolio of exciting events, including a trade show, comprehensive industry seminars and some exciting new changes.
There are two notable changes this year: first, the event will end at 2 p.m. on Sunday, March 29 so that those not staying over may travel home safely without missing any of the convention’s compelling content.
Second, the OARA is adding a technology lab on the morning of Saturday, March 28 to extend the educational portion of the trade show and allow tech-oriented vendors to train, answer questions and demonstrate different aspects of their solutions and capabilities.
As in previous years, renewing direct members will receive one complimentary full registration—but you are still required to register for the convention in order to claim this benefit.
The technology lab at the Hilton Mississauga/Meadowvale will provide an area for all software, data, technology-based vendors to set up training and demonstration tables. The lab will operate from 9:00 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. on Saturday and will serve as an opportunity to specifically address software issues, training needs and to preview products not already being used. The open format aims to allow vendors and trainers to tailor assistance to the needs of each user.
So far year’s confirmed vendors are Buddy Automotive Innovations, Car-Part.com, Hollander, Power DB by Solex and more to come.
“We are well over half full for the trade show,” said the OARA. “And the hotel is filling up— don’t delay in booking a room if you know you are coming as the hotel and our room block will fill up.”
