Manufacturer Discussions Central to Upcoming PRO Meeting

May 22, 2013

The Professional Restylers Organization (PRO) will hold its industry discussion and long-range planning meeting June 13-14 at the Detroit Metro Airport Marriott.

The event will offer a 3M site visit on June 13 and a future trends discussion in a relaxed setting with manufacturers such as 3M, Echomater, Kicker and Rosen Entertainment. Company officials as well as restyling  shop representatives will share insights about product development opportunities and how to increase business efficiencies in a casual environment, according to SEMA.

“This is a unique situation to discuss future and/or potential products that restylers would like to have in their shops,” said Bob Carnahan, future trends community chairperson for PRO.

On June 14, PRO leadership will lead break-out sessions targeted at addressing the challenges and opportunities in the accessory and appearance segments of the specialty-equipment industry.

Attendees are permitted to bring one guest and must RSVP by May 27 at
