Mississauga, ON – July 20, 2015  For the fifth consecutive year, PPG is the exclusive paint sponsor of FenderBenderLive.com, FenderBender magazine’s website for coverage of the NACE (National Association of Corrosion Engineers) International Autobody Exposition & Conference. The 2015 event is being held July 21-25 in Detroit at Cobo Center. The first two days are dedicated to education and seminars with the Exposition portion beginning on July 23.

Since teaming with PPG and launching in 2011, FenderBenderLive.com has served as a one-stop source for comprehensive NACE show coverage. This year’s reporting begins July 22 and continues throughout the show. The site will feature interviews with industry professionals and exhibitors, photo galleries from the show floor and the latest event news.

“As long-time participants in major industry events, we are again pleased to have the opportunity to enhance show coverage with FenderBender Live,” said John Parran, PPG marketing director. “The NACE show is a premier collision industry event, and FenderBender Live serves as a critical channel that industry professionals can use to stay current with the business. And that’s something we’re eager to support.”
