Online housing registration for the upcoming International Autobody Congress & Exposition (NACE) and Congress of Automotive Repair (CARS) is now open and features hotel rates at an all-time low due to a strategic move to October show dates, show organizers say.
The affordable rates are also attributable to Automotive Service & Repair Week’s (ASRW) new day pattern, which allows attendees to take advantage of weekday hotel rates. These industry events, sponsored by the Automotive Service Association (ASA), will be co-located at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center in Las Vegas, and will be held Oct. 10-13 taking place during the third annual Automotive Service & Repair Week (ASRW).
There’s a price-point for every budget, according to show organizers, with low rates available at all official NACE and CARS hotels, saving attendees 20 percent to 40 percent over 2009 rates. Weekday rates start as low as $99 for Mandalay Bay; $139 for THEhotel; $89 for MGM; $60 for Luxor; $41 for Excalibur; and $69 for New York-New York.
Attendees are encouraged to go online and book housing before July 30 to secure the above early-bird rates. It is important to note that price-points fluctuate between weekend (Friday and Saturday) and weekday (Sunday through Thursday) rates. Complete rate structures are outlined on the NACE and CARS websites.
American Airlines, Continental, Delta, Air Canada and WestJet will serve as official airlines, offering service from destinations worldwide to Las Vegas’ McCarran Airport. Discounts are available off published airfares based on availability, offering the most cost-effective travel.
Avis offers discounted car rental rates to help show participants get around Las Vegas easily.
