For the first time ever, Driven Brands is set to host a joint conference to celebrate the CARSTAR and Driven Glass (consisting of UniglassPlus, VitroPlus, Docteur Pare-Brise, Go!Glass and Star Auto Glass) franchise partners.

The event will take place from Tuesday, July 18 through Thursday, July 20 at the Fairmont Queen Elizabeth in Montreal, Canada.

Quebec is home to over 100 facilities across the CARSTAR Canada and Driven Glass brands, making Montreal the perfect backdrop for the highly anticipated conference. Montreal’s deeply rooted cultures are showcased through its diverse cuisine, economic growth, and world-class entertainment, which continuously evolve with changing times while honouring its beginnings. Much like our Driven Brands Canada family of companies.

Bringing the larger Canadian Driven Brands together

“I’m excited to bring together the larger Canadian Driven Brands family,” said Sabrina Thing, Chief Operating Officer, CARSTAR Canada. “We’ll share our path forward, highlighting the opportunities ahead of us for our larger network, while celebrating each individual brand and all of the achievements our franchise partners have reached to date.”

The 2023 Driven Brands Canada conference will feature an agenda filled with three days of education, thoughtful discussions, and networking opportunities. Most importantly, the Driven Brands Canada team will celebrate all the achievements from 2023 for each respective brand.

Charity walk kicks off the conference

The conference will kick off on Tuesday with a charity walk to benefit Cystic Fibrosis Canada, the Breakfast Club of Canada and the Quebec Breast Cancer Foundation. Following the walk, attendees will be welcomed to the conference through a kickoff event featuring a welcome message from the leadership team and a presentation from keynote speaker, Georges Laraque. On Wednesday, the general sessions will be followed by a variety of breakout sessions set to provide in-depth information on initiatives and topics particular to each brand. The closing day will feature more general and breakout sessions, with a vendor tradeshow and awards gala set to round out the week.

“This year’s conference is going to be one to remember,” said Maurice Filion, President, Uniban Canada. “From the general and breakout sessions to the vendor tradeshow and awards gala, there will be ample information, celebration, and fun to be had with our larger network of brands. I am ready to see the evolution and growth of our franchise partners following this conference!”
