Speakers

Here’s to real experts who know what they’re talking about. We select speakers based on our experience as the premier auto care industry publication. We brought these shop owners on board specifically to help you grow your business. Not the other way around. Feel free to strike up a conversation with them on one of the many breaks and networking activities, too!

Engage

No one can afford to sit around all day. That’s why we’ve created ample networking opportunities. Speakers included. It works because we limit attendance and create a tight-knit community of progressive shop operators and industry experts. Ahh yes… So much can be accomplished over a beer.

Travel

It’s tough to get away. So we made this event nice and convenient. There’s the world-class Yorktown Center for shopping just steps away from the hotel, and you’ll be a mere 25 miles from O’Hare and Midway Airports and downtown Chicago. That means there will be plenty for you and your spouse to do. Did we mention the Cubs are in town?

Hotel Information
The 4-star Westin is waiting. Special rates for the early birds.

Getting Around
Chicago has it all. No matter your preference.

Area Attractions
Just steps from dining and shopping. Within reach of downtown Chicago.

The earlier the better. We’re offering special pricing for those who sign up early. We’re also limiting the total attendance so you can better network with other shop leaders and the speakers themselves. This means the event could sell out.
