ASRW to Host Industry Forum

The 2010 Automotive Service Repair Week (ASRW) will host an official Industry Forum to discuss timely industry issues, followed by a networking reception Sunday, Oct. 10, from 5 p.m.-8 p.m. at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center in Las Vegas. The forum and reception will conclude the first day of education at ASRW 2010, featuring the International Autobody Congress  Exposition (NACE) and the Congress of Automotive Repair and Service (CARS) events taking place Oct. 10-13, 2010.

Designed as a professional venue to discuss relevant, thought-provoking topics, attendees of the industry forum, according to Hanley-Wood Exhibitions, can expect compelling, current and even controversial issues that transcend the industry.

The ASRW Industry Forum will feature two concurrent 45-minute sessions, one for the mechanical industry and one for the collision repair industry; a 30-minute break; two additional concurrent sessions (one each for the mechanical and collision repair industries); and will conclude with an hour-long networking reception and mixer. Tickets for the ASRW Industry Forum will be available later this week when attendee registration opens online and can be purchased for $40 through Aug. 17; $50 after.

Sponsors of this new forum are: the National Institute for Automotive Service Excellence (ASE), the National Automotive Technicians Education Foundation (NATEF), the Women’s Industry Network (WIN), the National Auto Body Council (NABC), the Automotive Management Institute (AMI) and the I-CAR Education Foundation.

ASRW currently features 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.

Online registration will open later this week and offers various package options starting at $210, and Expo registration is available for just $15, until the Aug. 17 early-bird deadline. Online housing is now open with special low rates available until July 30.
