NACE | CARS - the event where the collision + service repair industries come together

Welcome to NACE | CARS 2014.

The Automotive Service Association (ASA) is proud to present the 32nd year of the largest North American conference and exhibition dedicated to the collision and service repair industries. This event will provide shop owners, managers, estimators, technicians, insurance professionals, and students the most-up-to date information on the latest repair procedures, equipment and technology. 

Attendees to the show will see more live demonstrations, tools, equipment, and services on the exhibition floor than at any time in the shows long, storied history. You will have more opportunities for hands on training, education, and certification at numerous sessions and classes. And you will have the opportunity to network and meet others in the industry from around the world during the many forums, meetings, receptions, tours, golf tournament, and social events.

Numerous organizations will be co-locating meetings or otherwise be involved during the week of July 28-August 2 including ASE, I-CAR, CIC, CEICA, NABC, CCIF, OEM Roundtable, SCRS, and others. This gathering of the industry creates tremendous opportunity for education, collaboration, and networking.

Once again, welcome to NACE | CARS 2014; we look forward to seeing you in Detroit this summer.
