Exhibitors Getting Early Start with AASP/NJ’s 35th NORTHEAST 2012 Show

NORTHEAST 2012 will take place March 9-11 at the Meadowlands Exposition Center (MEC) in Secaucus, N.J.

ALLDATA, Future Cure, Hunter Engineering, Metropolitan Car-O-Liner, Mitchell, SAIMA/Accudraft and Subaru are among the exhibitors already signed up for the Alliance of Automotive Service Providers of New Jersey (AASP/NJ)’s 35th annual NORTHEAST Automotive Services Show at the Meadowlands. NORTHEAST 2012 will take place March 9-11 at the Meadowlands Exposition Center (MEC) in Secaucus, N.J.
"We’re pleasantly surprised with the early sign-ups," says AASP/NJ President Jeff McDowell. "The 2012 show already has a buzz to it and it’s very exciting for AASP/NJ."

Other early exhibitors include Aeromotive, Audatex, Flemington Car & Truck Country, Hella, Integrity Security Systems, LKQ, Procut USA, Steck Manufacturing, Suburban Manufacturing Inc./Tsunami Industries, Team PRP and the Radiator Store.

NORTHEAST 2012 plans to build on the continued success of the previous shows at the Meadowlands location, according to AASP/NJ.

"Every year since we’ve moved back to the Meadowlands, we have seen growth in every facet of the show," McDowell adds. "We plan to make NORTHEAST 2012  the best yet."

NORTHEAST 2012 will utilize a technologically heavy marketing plan including Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and LinkedIn as well as an interactive show website (www.aaspnjnortheast.com) to make the show more accessible than ever, AASP/NJ says.

"Our show is kind of like the working man’s show," McDowell says. "A lot of people, especially with today’s economy, don’t have the time or the money to fly to Las Vegas or Orlando. With NORTHEAST 2012, you can just jump in the truck, drive a few miles, spend a few hours and get everything you need — whether it be education, training or equipment — and be back home by the end of the day."

The official website of NORTHEAST, www.aaspnjnortheast.com, will feature an interactive floor plan, enhanced event and seminar registration (site visitors can enter their email to be notified when registration opens up to the public) and the "Must See Vendor" page.

NORTHEAST 2012 is happening March 9-11, 2012 at the Meadowlands Exposition Center of Secaucus, N.J.
