A Learning Experience

“Anyone who stops learning is old, whether twenty or eighty.” – Henry Ford


In the collision repair industry, learning does more than keep you young – it keeps you in business.

The increasingly complex technologies needed to repair today’s vehicles require that a technician continue to “learn” his craft, even if he has decades of experience.

For the collision repair shop owner, the margin of error has all but disappeared, not only in the bays but also in the front office.

Today, the difficulty in making a profit demands that a shop owner have good business and management skills. One of the best places to acquire these skills is NACE.

The International Autobody Congress and Exposition (NACE) is a once-a-year opportunity to expand your knowledge. Scheduled to be held November 3-6 at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center in Las Vegas, NACE is an event shop owners can’t afford to miss.


At NACE you will:

  • Hear the industry’s most knowledgeable members discuss the latest repair and management techniques.

  • Get a firsthand look at the newest products and services on the market.

  • Meet with leading manufacturers and suppliers.

  • Talk to successful shop owners from around the country.

  • Acquire the techniques to become a more skilled technician.

  • Obtain the knowledge to make you a better business person.

In short, at NACE you will learn.

For those people who don’t attend seminars or trade shows because they’ve been in this business so long they think there’s nothing these events can teach them – it’s time to think again. Years in business don’t necessarily measure ability. As the adage goes, you can have 20 years of experience or one year of experience 20 times.


When a business person stops keeping up with his profession, he starts losing out – losing out on customers and profits. The best way to stay ahead in your business is to stay informed, and NACE can help you do that. (Details about NACE can be found at their Web site, www.naceexpo.com.)

People who run successful businesses do so by continuing to increase their knowledge and improve themselves. They are the ones who never stop learning all they can about their profession.

See you at NACE!
