Online pre-registration for the Alliance of Automotive Service Providers of New Jersey’s (AASP/NJ) NORTHEAST 2012 went live on Jan. 1 in anticipation of the association’s 35th anniversary of their signature event. Registrants can sign up for the Northeast’s largest automotive repair show here.
Pre-registration is FREE (on-site registration the weekend of the show is $10 at the door). NORTHEAST 2012 takes place March 9, 10 and 11 at the Meadowlands Exposition Center of Secaucus, N.J.
With over 250 exhibitors and 400 booths expected, the 35th edition of the NORTHEAST show looks to be AASP/NJ’s most successful event yet, the association says.
"I think I’m as excited as I have ever been about our show," says AASP/NJ President Jeff McDowell from his shop in Fords, N.J. "With the economy the way it is and with everything in our industry changing so rapidly, we need an event like NORTHEAST just to survive."
Along with the latest in equipment and technology, NORTHEAST 2012 is offering a full slate of educational and training seminars on the latest topics trending in the industry.
"Everyone’s busy. Everyone’s looking to make money," McDowell adds. "For a lot of us, it’s difficult to leave our shops and travel, whether it be Las Vegas, Orlando or wherever. The great thing about NORTHEAST is that it is right in the backyard of over 25,000 repair shops. To not make the short trip is, frankly, bad business. I promise you, you will learn or purchase something new that will put money in your pocket at NORTHEAST. We’ve had 35 years to perfect this show, and I think we have come pretty damn close to doing just that this year."
