Consolidators: Auto Glass Now Opens Two New Locations
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.
