There's a lot of purchasing power at NACE. Exhibitors have the chance to show off their products and give one-on-one demonstrations.

Many booths, like General Motors, displays sharp looking cars in their booths.

Saturday was the last day for attendees to purchase new services and equipment for their shop. Over 27,000 people attended this year's NACE.

KahlerWelcome to the final issue of the 2005 NACE Online Daily News, the publication that delivers the most up-to-date news from the No. 1 global event for collision repair professionals. This marks the end of our 10th installment of the official online publication of NACE. On behalf of AutoInc. magazine and the Automotive Service Association, I thank you for your continued support during a decade of NACE coverage.

Once again, NACE has transcended all expectations. Between the management and technical courses, Process and Profit Clinics, Rudy Giuliani's keynote address, New Product Pavilion and the hundreds of exhibitors, NACE remains the pinnacle of the collision repair industry.

Yesterday's luncheon featuring Lynn Donohue would have made anyone proud to be a part of this industry. Those who attended this luncheon, appropriately titled "Call to Action! Challenge for the Collision Repair Industry," walked away inspired. Listening to how many industry professionals are giving back to the industry, their communities and other deserving causes was truly inspiring. As we've witnessed the past few months, our industry stands strong in times of need. Yesterday's luncheon simply re-emphasized that aspect.

As the show concluded today, it made me realize how fortunate we are to have NACE as part of Industry Week activities in Las Vegas. The networking opportunities available at NACE 2005 was incomparable, especially when you factor in the projected 150,000 automotive professionals that convened this week in Las Vegas. The benefits of NACE were unbeatable once again.

Although this year's show concludes today, the Online Daily News will remain active. Please log on to the NACE Online Daily Daily News Web site at, or the official Web site of NACE ( anytime you're looking for information about NACE.

I look forward to seeing you again next year in Las Vegas at NACE 2006!
