ASRW moves to two expo days, three education days Oct. 17 and 18 in Las Vegas

Beginning with the 2013 event, Automotive Service & Repair Week (ASRW) will become a two-day expo, with three days of education. The show floor will be open Thursday, Oct. 17 and Friday, Oct. 18 from 9:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. daily. The ASRW conference program will take place Wednesday, Oct. 16, through Friday, Oct. 18, and the event remains at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center in Las Vegas.

The change is in response to feedback gathered from loyal exhibiting companies as well as attendees, and will offer significant business and financial efficiencies for all ASRW participants. With this updated schedule, participants will enjoy the same number of expo hours as in the past, but streamlined into two action-packed days.

To deliver the maximum experience and value to ASRW attendees, several key events will evolve for 2013, including the ASRW industry forum panel discussion and the creation of a new on-floor networking event.

“After diligently compiling, researching and examining feedback from our loyal participants, these changes reflect the culmination of months of work, and we are so pleased to reveal our plans,” stated Ron Pyle, ASA president. “This new show structure was carefully crafted to foster a deeper level of networking and community among attendees and within the industry, and provides a solution to a longtime industry need identified through our research.”

The ASRW expo schedule for 2013 is as follows:

Thursday, Oct. 17

8:00 a.m. – 9:30 a.m. – ASRW General Session
