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

A Successful NACE | CARS 2014

On behalf of the Automotive Service Association (ASA) Board of Directors, thank you for investing your time, money and resources to support NACE | CARS in Detroit. We recognize that there were a lot of unanswered questions preceding the event including, but not limited to, the new show management company, date, location and industry participation. Hopefully, any questions or concerns you or your staff had were addressed and further validated the commitment you and your company made to the show and the industry.

We look to build upon the success of this year’s show to deliver an even better exhibitor and attendee experience in 2015. We are committed to reinventing NACE | CARS and the trade show industry. The live demonstrations featuring spraying, welding and scan tool technology on running vehicles inside of the convention center may be an industry first. Based upon the feedback and strong interest, expanding the scope of live demonstrations will be a high priority next year.

Please continue to share your thoughts and ideas. We are committed to soliciting your input, direction and feedback. Our goal for the show will be the same in 2015: Produce a show that the industry proudly supports because it provides value to all stakeholders.

Dan Risley, ASA President
