The expo offers hundreds of diverse exhibiting companies displaying the latest equipment, products, services and technology available to today’s collision repair industry.

The remaining two annual scholarships help cover expenses for recipients to attend the Congress of Automotive Repair and Service (CARS) July 22-25 in Detroit. These scholarships are the Tom B. Babcox Memorial Scholarship and the Arrowhead Specialty Market “High Octane” Scholarship.
