ASRW Takes Over the ‘World’ in New Orleans

The Automotive Service & Repair Week (ASRW) Welcome Party will take place at the iconic Mardi Gras World Thursday, Oct. 11, from 4:30-6:30 p.m. and will again be sponsored by CCC Information Services.

Complimentary transportation will be provided for ASRW attendees. Upon arrival, attendees will begin the evening by walking through the ‘working warehouse’ of Mardi Gras parade floats and sculptures. The party culminates at the Grand Oaks Mansion next door – an indoor antebellum mansion replica.

“We’re very happy to sponsor this terrific event for the fifth straight year,” said Jim Dickens, senior vice president of the Automotive Service Group at CCC. “We’re really looking forward to seeing our customers and industry partners in New Orleans this year.”

“Mardi Gras World represents quintessential New Orleans and it’s the perfect backdrop for a memorable evening and lively celebration,” said Ron Pyle, ASA president. “What a great place to kick-off another ASRW!”
