2010 ASRW Partnering Program Kicks Off with Industry Support

Automotive Service & Repair Week (ASRW 2010) reports it has received strong industry support for this year’s events via the ASRW Partnering Program (APP). The APP is designed to foster industry participation by partnering organizations supporting the many segments of the automotive service and repair industry. APP participants promote unified industry involvement, while strengthening their respective groups and memberships.

The ASRW 2010 events will take place Oct. 10-13 at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center in Las Vegas (no longer during AAIW). ASRW is a stand-alone event specifically created for all automotive service and repair professionals, enabling even more industry segments to join under the umbrella.

The educational program is scheduled Oct. 10-13, and the comprehensive exhibits will be open from Oct. 11-13. ASRW currently features the International Autobody Congress & Exposition (NACE), sponsored by the Automotive Service Association (ASA); the Congress of Automotive Repair & Service (CARS), also sponsored by ASA; as well as Auto Glass Week, dedicated to the automotive glass professional.

The organizations participating in this year’s ASRW Partnering Program include:

“NABC has been a proud supporter of NACE and an active participant in the ASRW Partnering Program since its inception. Through the APP we are able to promote the event, attract new attendees, and grow our membership all at the same time,” says Chuck Sulkala, NABC executive director. “Our presence at NACE is vital and allows us the platform with which to highlight our community awareness project, NABC’s Recycled Rides – benefiting families and service organizations in need throughout the United States.”
