Welcome!

An iconic American city home to Millennium Park, Navy Pier, the Magnificent Mile, Museum Campus and the Willis (Sears) Tower, Chicago has always been a hub of excitement and is now the host city for our third annual North American conference! 

The rate of CARSTAR’s growth has only accelerated since we have been operating as a unified North American network. We know that performance drives growth. It is because of the work put in by each franchise, insurance and vendor partner, that the CARSTAR family has been able to improve our performance year after year, ultimately accelerating our rapid growth. This is why the theme of this year is, acceleration.

Headquartered at the Hilton Chicago, in the heart of the Windy City, we will be steps away from several renowned attractions and surrounded by premier repair centers as the Chicagoland area has over 20 CARSTAR locations. Packed into three days, this conference will be sure to educate us all as we share key CARSTAR updates, learn about industry advancements and hear from informative thought leaders. We will also have the opportunity to visit one of the most historic ballparks in the country, the over 100-year old, Wrigley Field. 

Celebrating our 30th anniversary at this conference, makes the theme of acceleration that much more fitting. Founded on the principle of providing expert repairs with a premier customer experience, we have always stayed true to these values, but have now taken its significance to new heights. I am excited to spend some time with all of you as we honor our past, celebrate our achievements and plan for the future.

See you all in Chicago, this July!
