NASTF’s administrative director, Mary Hutchinson of ASE, said, “NASTF is grateful for ASA’s support over the years in providing meeting space at ASRW. Holding our Fall General Meeting during this event serves our professional community well by allowing attendees the opportunity to participate in the NASTF meeting as part of their ASRW experience. It’s a great way to maximize the travel investment and help to improve the industry at the same time.”
The ASRW 2010 events will take place Oct. 10-13 at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center in Las Vegas (no longer during AAIW). ASRW is a stand-alone event specifically created for all automotive service and repair professionals, enabling even more industry segments to join under the umbrella. The high-quality educational program is scheduled Oct. 10-13, a Sunday through Wednesday day pattern; and the comprehensive exhibits will be open from Oct. 11-13, Monday through Wednesday. ASRW currently features the International Autobody Congress & Exposition (NACE), sponsored by the Automotive Service Association (ASA), the only event of its kind designed for the collision repair professional, and the Congress of Automotive Repair & Service (CARS), also sponsored by ASA, the premier event for automotive service professionals.
“ASA is extremely pleased to provide the space necessary for hosting the NASTF meeting during ASRW. The task force does outstanding work on behalf of the entire industry and we value their commitment,” said Ron Pyle, ASA president and chief staff executive. “Through their sophisticated network of services and systems, NASTF’s continued support of the OEMs will serve as a direct complement to ASRW’s OEM participants including Chrysler, Ford, GM, Honda and Toyota.”
