New Orleans Selected as 2012 Site of 30th Annual NACE

In what show organizers call a continuing effort to respond to consistent participant feedback, Automotive Service & Repair Week (ASRW) announced its 2012 event, featuring the milestone 30th annual NACE event, will take place Oct. 11-13 at the New Orleans Ernest N. Morial Convention Center in New Orleans, La. The 2012 expo will again follow a Thursday-Saturday day pattern, with education beginning Wednesday, Oct. 10.

"Almost a year ago, we put the attendees and exhibitors in charge of key decisions about the future of ASRW, including where and when the event takes place," said ASA President Ron Pyle. "After multiple surveys among both attendees and exhibitors, the results were clear: our audience wants this event in New Orleans, and we’re pleased to make it happen."

Based on attendance trends leading up to the 2011 event, the move to New Orleans is expected to draw a significant population of new attendees, since a new region of the U.S. will gain access to this international event.

Representatives from New Orleans will be onsite at ASRW 2011 in Orlando to formally open housing, assist attendees with reserving hotel rooms and answer questions about the city.

NACE was last held in New Orleans in 1995; CARS in the late 1980s.
