With just under two months to go, it’s full speed ahead for CarFixWORLD, Canada’s major event for the repair, collision and automotive aftermarket industries. Carol Bell- Lenoury, the show’s director, reports that as of August 1 booth and exhibition space are roughly 75% booked. Even this far in advance, Bell reports that registration to attend the event is running above expectations. With a 2 for 1 Publishers Offer scheduled to arrive in the next issue of Canada’s top automotive trade publications, SSGM, Bodyshop, Jobber News and l’automobile, plus special offers from several trade associations, attendance could end up exceeding original predictions. Career Day on Friday, September 29 is proving a large draw both for prospective employers and the apprentice/student population. “At this point more than 3,000 students have already booked for Career Day and school doesn’t start for a month,” Bell notes. The interest is understandable on top of a long list of exhibitors, CarFixWORLD offers the industry a great deal more than ‘just another trade show.’ Currently 28 speakers are confirmed for presentations at the event including a keynote address by Dennis DesRosiers, Canada’s leading automotive analyst. Business matters, so important for independent operators, and all things technical are on the schedule as well as a healthy dose of auto celebrities including several TV personalities and race drivers. Many exhibitors are slated to present brand new products and technology to keep their customers at the top of the curve and some of the industry’s top trainers will provide their insights into today’s hot topics. The entire schedule, which grows each day, is accessible easily via www.carfixworld.com. CarFixWORLD takes place from Sept 29- Oct 1, 2006 at the Direct Energy Centre (formerly the National Trade Centre) at Toronto’s Exhibition Place. Registration is easily accessible online, by fax at 416-510-5133 or by phone at during business hours at 416 510-8687.
