The 2010 Automotive Service & Repair Week (ASRW) will host an official Industry Forum to discuss timely industry issues, followed by a networking reception Sunday, Oct. 10, from 5 p.m.-8 p.m. at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center in Las Vegas. The forum and reception will conclude the first day of education at ASRW 2010, featuring the International Autobody Congress & Exposition (NACE) and the Congress of Automotive Repair and Service (CARS) events taking place Oct. 10-13, 2010.
Designed as a professional venue to discuss relevant, thought-provoking topics, attendees of the industry forum can expect compelling, current – and even controversial – issues that transcend the industry.
The ASRW Industry Forum will feature two concurrent 45-minute sessions, one for the mechanical industry and one pertaining to collision repair; a 30-minute break; two additional concurrent sessions (one each for the mechanical and collision repair industries); and will conclude with an hour-long networking reception and mixer. Tickets for the ASRW Industry Forum will be available later this week when attendee registration opens online and can be purchased for US$40 through Aug. 17; US$50 after.
Sponsors of this new forum are: the National Institute for Automotive Service Excellence (ASE), the National Automotive Technicians Education Foundation (NATEF), the Women’s Industry Network (WIN), the National Auto Body Council (NABC), the Automotive Management Institute (AMI) and the I-CAR Education Foundation.
