STRONGSVILLE, Ohio – March 1, 2012 – PPG MVP Business Solutions announced today that its annual spring conference is sold out and registration is now closed. The conference, open to owners and managers of collision centers using PPG Refinish products, is scheduled for March 25-27, at the Pointe Hilton Tapatio Cliffs Resort in Phoenix, Arizona. The conference is designed to give participants exposure to effective approaches for advancing their competitive capabilities.

“We are very pleased that our customers recognize the importance of these conferences,” said Jim Berkey, PPG, director, MVP Business Solutions. “We put a lot of effort into providing pertinent information and processes that can make a real difference in a collision center’s business success. Apparently, our customers are finding genuine value in what we are offering because these conferences are gaining in popularity. We are delighted to have another sell-out event.”

PPG MVP Business Solutions conferences are well known for their noteworthy lineup of speakers, seminars, and interactive workshops all focused on helping attendees improve collision center performance, and the spring event carries on that tradition. The upcoming conference will feature prominent motivational speakers Vince Poscente and Joe Calloway. Poscente, a New York Times best-selling author, business consultant, and Olympic skier, will talk about how to get down to business and up to speed for a competitive advantage in “Big Goals in Short Order: Learning to Thrive in a More-Faster-Now World.” Calloway, also an author as well as a performance consultant, will present “Minds Wide Open,” a dynamic session that will let attendees in on how market leaders think and create success.

Attendees will be able to participate in informative and insightful seminars and workshops addressing a variety of critical industry-related issues. Participants will also have the opportunity to network with colleagues in a number of social events.

MVP conferences are biannual events and key components of PPG’s ongoing commitment to provide advanced business thinking and innovative solutions to its MVP customers. The next conference will be set for the fall of 2012 with dates to be announced.
