ATI’s SuperConference 2019 Upholds 16-Year Tradition of Training, Fundraising, and Celebrating

ATI’s 16th annual SuperConference took place on March 20-23 in San Antonio, Texas at the JW Marriott San Antonio Hill Country Resort. Over 600 shop owner members, their employees and family, and event sponsors converged on the luxury resort for four days of engaging activities, including discovering new strategies, networking with peers, touring the area, fundraising and celebrating successes.

“We’re honored that SuperConference continues to get a great turnout each year. It’s more than a learning opportunity for our members; it’s a chance to find out about new services, raise money for local charities, check in with their peers and coaches, celebrate with each other, and have lots of fun doing it. The ATI team is excited for next year and have already started planning SuperConference 2020, which will be held in Carlsbad, California in March of 2020” said Richard Menneg, President.

Speaker Line-Up

The speaker line-up, which was a closely guarded secret up until moments before their presentations, featured the following personalities and topics:

Attendees Had This to Say

“Super Conference was incredible! Getting to bond with our 20 Group at a deeper level was invaluable. The venue was perfect! The ATI team were on point and there for us! The breakout sessions were like words for our souls! We feel like new dogs now, we have new goals, dreams, and vision for our business and our lives!” said Kim Smith, Owner of Port Clinton Auto Repair, Port Clinton, Ohio

Michelle Long, Co-owner of Long’s Car Care Center, Woodinville, Washington added “This was our 9th Super Conference. I have enjoyed them all, otherwise we wouldn’t keep coming, but this one was over the top. Having owners do Round Tables was a great addition. The addition of entertainment in the awards ceremony was the best thing ever (whoever came up with that idea deserves a raise.) The amount of work that goes into putting this on baffles me. Thank YOU! It was an amazing conference! I am so proud to be part of the ATI Family! Can hardly wait for next year!”

Awards

The conference was also an opportunity for ATI to recognize top shops in the country and all the hard work and passion that goes into being the Best of the Best with a full lineup of high achievement awards. All awards were presented at the SuperConference 2019 Awards Banquet in San Antonio, Texas, on March 23, 2019. See all the winners by visiting the Top Shop page of the CPTS Resource Center (requires a login).

This year’s ATI Top Shop award went to Eddie and Trish Cleveland of Rob’e Mans Automotive Service in Birmingham, Alabama.

Charity

SuperConference is held in a different location each year and chooses a local charity for its fundraiser accordingly. This year’s charity was Soldier’s Angels – a San Antonio based organization that provides aid to over 360,000 service members, veterans, wounded heroes, and military families. Conference attendees participated in fundraising activities and donated money and supplies. Donation totals are still being tabulated and will be announced soon.
