ASRW 2010 Registration Opens;
As the industry's trusted resource for quality education, the 2010 educational program at the International Autobody Congress & Exposition (NACE) and the Congress of Automotive Repair & Service (CARS) will feature more than 80 educational sessions, divided among three tracks: Management, Technical and Women's Professional Development. Many of the management sessions are accredited by the Automotive Management Institute (AMI), while the technical sessions focus on today's most relevant technical topics.
Additional add-on education will be presented by I-CAR, Property Casualty Insurers Association of America (PCI), and the National Institute for Automotive Service Excellence (ASE). NACE and CARS are sponsored by ASA and will be co-located at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center in Las Vegas beginning Sunday, Oct. 10, during the third annual Automotive Service & Repair Week (ASRW).
The NACE and CARS conference program delves into issues that are dealt with by both the mechanical and collision segments on a daily, weekly and annual basis, and is designed to meet their educational needs. Sessions will be offered in both 90-minute and three-hour time slots. Tracks are specific to NACE and CARS with emphasis on either management or technical topics, but all ASRW registered attendees have access to any session they wish to attend.
Online housing registration for NACE and CARS is now open and features all-time-low hotel rates due to a strategic move to October show dates, resulting in outstanding savings for both attendees and exhibitors. The affordable rates are also attributable to ASRW's new day pattern, which allows attendees to take advantage of weekday hotel rates. These industry events, sponsored by ASA, will be co-located at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center in Las Vegas, Oct. 10-13.
"When we first contemplated moving the event to October, we knew hotel rates would be lower than what we've been able to negotiate in the past. But the rates we were able to secure for our room blocks exceeded our expectations," said Lindsay Roberts, director, Hanley Wood Exhibitions. "Our goal was to get rock-bottom rates that would make it even more attractive to our audience to travel to 'Vegas in October, and we did!"
It is important to note that price-points fluctuate between weekend (Friday and Saturday) and weekday (Sunday through Thursday) rates. Complete rate structures are outlined on the NACE and CARS websites (www.NACEexpo.com and www.CARSevent.com).
American Airlines, Continental, Delta, Air Canada and WestJet will serve as official airlines, offering service from destinations worldwide to Las Vegas' McCarran Airport. Discounts are available off published airfares based on availability, offering the most cost-effective travel.
Avis offers discounted car rental rates to help show participants get around Las Vegas easily.
To ensure the best rates for travel and accommodations, attendees and exhibitors should book through the online reservation system at www.HanleyWoodHousing.com. Reservations may be made online 24 hours a day, seven days a week, or by calling (800) 895-3978 during the hours of 9 a.m.-7 p.m. ET, Monday through Friday.
As the exclusive, official housing provider for both NACE and CARS, HanleyWoodHousing.com is the only company that can sell rooms in the official housing blocks. Attendees and exhibitors are encouraged to only use HanleyWoodHousing.com for all their travel needs.
