TEMPE BODY SHOP REVIEWS ASA ACCEPTING PROPOSAL’S FOR NACE/ CARS EXPO AND CONFERENCE
According to Tempe Body Shop, the Automotive Service Association (ASA) is currently seeking some industry professionals to contact them in case they have a presentation that they would like to share with the independent automotive service and collision repair service.
Tempe Body shop discovered that ASA is accepting proposals for the presentation that will be made available during the education conference that will be ongoing at 2016 NACE/CARS Expo and Conference that will be held on Aug. 10-12 at the Anaheim Convention Center Anaheim California.
The announcement of the Expo was greeted with relief by many of the attendants. Despite the well-organized expo, very well attended MSO Symposium (700 attendees), a major connected car technology and telematics forum, and demonstration-rich Expo floor complete with active spray booths and occasionally running vehicles, the show failed to attract much more than the approximately 6200 show attendees of last year’s NACE-CARS.
The NACE CARS Expo and Conference is an International Autobody Congress and Exposition (NACE) and Congress of Automotive Repair and Service (CARS), and the premier event is usually dedicated to the Automotive service and repair industries.
This particular event is usually held during the Industry week and co-located with CCIF, CIECA, NABC, MERA, OEM collision roundtables, SCRS, CIC, the Collision Repair Education Foundation’s annual golf outing and I-CAR. Tempe Body Shop discovered that this was the only event where you will be able to find unmatched networking, education and training, world-class exhibits and dedicated professionals from across the automotive service and repair industries.
Dan Risley, the current ASA president and executive director according to Tempe Body Shop, said that last year’s presentation at NACE and CARS were well received. He was quoted saying, “ We hope to build on that success and continue to deliver information and knowledge that drives efficiency and profitability when conference attendees return to their respective businesses.”
Tempe Body Shop noted that the selection would be mainly based on the presentation’s quality of the content, the need, demand for the information and the presenter’s expertise. If you would like to propose a presentation at NACE/CARS, you will need to complete a Call for presentation form that is available on the website. This particular form will need to be submitted by 1st Feb.
Tempe Body Shop noted that the presenters would be listed on the NACE/Cars Expo and conference website, onsite program materials and signage. Among other benefits, there will be the pre-and post-event promotion business across the US and in 10 different countries and the presentations will be promoted via email, social media, even marketing brochures, ASA’s website and press releases that will be presented.
According to Tempe Body Shop, last year's general session featured introductions from keynote speakers by ASA President Dan Risley, broken into three sessions, which included a keynote that was given by General Allison Hickey, undersecretary for benefits, Veterans Benefit Administration, made a passionate argument for hiring more vets in the collision repair. Other remarks were made by Donny Seyfer, ASA Chairperson and Executive of the year presentation by Scott Shriber of Babcox Media. According to the director, the 2016 Expo will be much more captivating and informative, a step from last year’s Expo.
