ASRW 2011 Attendance Up 18 Percent from 2010

Automotive Service & Repair Week (ASRW) 2011 was held recently in Orlando, Fla., and the event saw an 18 percent increase in overall attendance and what organizers say are strong initial sales for the 2012 event. ASRW 2012 is scheduled for Oct. 11-13 at the Morial Convention Center in New Orleans, La. Educational sessions will begin Oct. 10, 2012.

Ron Pyle, ASA president, commented on the event’s outcome, saying, "Since we’ve returned from the show, we’ve been inundated with an outpouring of positive feedback, success stories and personal testimonies of the impact of this year’s event. It’s evident a tremendous amount of business was transacted in Orlando last week, and we could not be happier with the upswing of ASRW 2011."

Total attendance for the 2011 event was 19,221, of which a third of the participants were from the east coast and another third were new attendees.

Additionally, advance exhibit space sales for ASRW 2012 began on-site, and to date, 20 percent of the show floor is already sold. Many verbal commitments have also been received and are expected to become firm commitments by the early-bird deadline of Nov. 15, 2011, according to show organizers.
