NACE | CARS has announced the involvement of Audi, BMW, Ford, GM, Fiat Chrysler Automobiles, Honda, Hyundai, Mazda, Nissan and Toyota for the 2016 event, taking place in Anaheim, Calif., Aug. 9-13. In addition to sponsorship and exhibit commitments, several of these companies will be offering specialty training – including launches of all new programs.
NACE | CARS provides OEMs the opportunity to serve several segments of the automotive industry at one event. Leadership representing the collision, service repair and insurance markets will be in attendance to gain insight on the latest technology in their respective fields. Attendees can expect to see presentations, seminars and training on the most up-to-date OEM technologies. Many of these OEM training programs will be offered at no charge.
“The support and participation of the car manufacturers is significant to the show’s development,” said Dan Risley, ASA president and executive director. “Although NACE | CARS received support in the past, the industry has never before experienced this level of OEM involvement. Service and repair professionals will benefit from attending and learning directly from the car manufacturers on how to repair the cars of today and tomorrow.”
This level of training and information exchange is unique to NACE | CARS and offers shop owners, management and technicians an opportunity to gain repair knowledge important to their businesses.
