I can hardly believe it’s that time of year again. NACE is right around the corner, and this year’s event in New Orleans promises to be excellent. It’s mind-boggling to see all the content and available activities on the agenda.
This meeting every year provides all of us in the collision sector with an exclusive identity and event to serve our individual needs. Whether it’s technical training, managerial counseling, new equipment needs or just information on industry trends, it’s all there under one roof.
The Automotive Service Association and the event planners do an excellent job every year of finding the hot topics and products so you can stay as current and cutting edge as possible.
New Orleans is a fun city that’s rich with history. Probably the only thing better than its history is the food. We’ve dedicated several pages in this issue to things to do and see while you’re in the Big Easy, and we hope you find it informative.
Speaking of history, this is also both BodyShop Business’ and NACE’s 30th anniversary. Together, both organizations have been serving you and the industry for 30 years. What better reason to get together and celebrate? Please stop by the BodyShop Business booth (N1129) on Friday, Oct. 12, from 2:30-4 p.m. and enjoy some refreshments with us. We’re looking forward to seeing you there.
Not all industries have the luxury of having a dedicated trade show like NACE. It’s a tremendous asset to all of us. In order to realize its benefits, you need to attend. There’s plenty of time to make your plans and head for New Orleans. You won’t be sorry you did, and for those of you on the East Coast, it’s a much shorter trip than next year’s location in Las Vegas. So let’s all make plans to meet at NACE.
See you in N’awlins!
