CHICAGO — Send your technicians to training and build your shop supplier network — all at one event. NACE Automechanika Chicago is offering matchmaking services between exhibitors and attendees of the 2017 show, happening July 26-29.
Unique to NACE Automechanika attendees, the service allows high-buying-power shops to connect with potential suppliers during the show. When you register to attend NACE Automechanika, simply check the box to indicate you are interested in matchmaking services, and via email you will be guided through the process, beginning in May. Three attendee webinars will also take place in May to further explain the offerings and how to best tailor it to your needs.

“Adding matchmaking to the list of unique offerings we are able to provide at NACE Automechanika Chicago is a huge benefit to all of the high-buying-power shops able to attend,” says Jim Savas, VP and GM of the Automotive Group at UBM Advanstar, one of the show organizers. “Instead of having multiple suppliers call on you and disrupt your business several times in a week, you can meet with the companies you want to, on your schedule and not miss out on any training or co-located events during NACE Automechanika Chicago.”
Shops and show exhibitors first complete a company profile to more clearly define their business, needs and wants. A matchmaking survey then matches exhibitors to shops based on a compatibility scoring process. Build your schedule by viewing recommended profiles and sending an invitation by simply clicking “schedule a meeting”in the matchmaking dashboard. The requested party can either accept or decline.
Manage your meetings in the digital dashboard so you have one less pamphlet or guide to carry, or print your full, final schedule before the event for easy reference for all company management or representatives attending.
The matchmaking process offers many benefits, including helping both attendees and exhibitors find the best matched participants for their needs; schedule meaningful meetings, maximize access to business opportunities, secure a full schedule for the show and ensure you make your valuable time count when attending NACE Automechanika.
