ASRW announced that its 2011 event will be held from Monday, Oct. 17 to Wednesday, Oct. 19, 2011, at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center in Las Vegas, Nev. The 2011 ASRW education program will begin on Sunday, October 16. ASRW includes NACE and CARS and the 2010 event is scheduled for Oct. 11-13, also at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center in Las Vegas. “In a year filled with changes in the automotive industry, we feel it’s important everyone knows ASRW, NACE and CARS are here to stay,” states Ron Pyle, ASA president and chief staff executive. Notable changes to the event in 2010 will carry over to 2011, including the date pattern (Sunday – Wednesday) and the separation of ASRW from other industry events. “ASRW provides such a tremendous value to all its participants, and we feel this event deserves its own week,” continues Pyle. “NACE and CARS have a long-standing history as successful, standalone events, and we are confident the 2010 and 2011 events will be no exceptions.”
