MACS announces new schedule for 2013 training event and trade show

The Mobile Air Conditioning Society (MACS) Worldwide has set a new direction for the annual MACS training event and trade show scheduled for February 7-9, 2013 at the Caribe Royale All Suites Resort and Convention Center.

Highlighting the MACS event is the theme, Be the Best of the Best!  “The theme reflects  the strong reputation the MACS meeting has enjoyed as the global gathering of the best and brightest in the industry for the past 32 years and embraces a new meeting  format that considers the needs and work-styles of a new generation of mobile A/C professionals,” explained Elvis L. Hoffpauir, MACS president and COO.

Restructuring of the MACS annual training event is a response to changing market conditions in the mobile A/C aftermarket and an effort to deliver markedly enhanced ROI for exhibitors, while continuing to offer the premiere annual training and networking opportunity for A/C specialists from the United States and other countries around the world.
