Now in its 32nd year, NACE/CARS 2014
features numerous opportunities for technical training, business and management
education, demonstrations, networking and technology showcases for
stakeholders, owners, managers and technicians in the collision and mechanical
repair industries.

The complexity of today’s vehicles from
a collision- and mechanical-repair perspective is eliminating competition and
reducing the number of shops in the country. Cars manufactured today require
specialized tooling, training and equipment, and the use of aluminum and
high-strength steels are changing the dynamics of the collision repair industry
as well. These are just some of the challenges that will be addressed with real
world solutions at NACE, according to event organizers.

Show organizers say CARS also is on
track to be better than ever thanks to a specific focus on telematics. Today’s
“connected car” can communicate information to the car in front of you, behind
you, a streetlight, a stop sign or a satellite as you drive down the road.
Telematics is a hot issue and CARS will exclusively offer a six-hour dedicated
program, the Technology & Telematics Forum, on Friday, Aug. 1, sponsored by
the Alliance of Automobile Manufacturers.

The full conference program is available
on the NACE/CARS website, which can be viewed HERE.

“Investing in training to ensure a
proper repair and remain current with today’s technology is a requirement. Your
customers and the success of your business are dependent upon your commitment
to ongoing education. We’ve spent countless hours developing this year’s
program to ensure we deliver upon our goal to assist collision and mechanical
repair professionals in performing a safe and proper repair while improving
efficiency and profitability,” said Dan Risley, ASA president and executive
director.

NACE/CARS 2014 welcomes students and
educators focused on the automotive repair industry; special discounts are
available to both. In addition, shops dedicated to ongoing education may be
eligible for a 50 percent discount. To qualify, shops, owners, technicians or
staff must be I-CAR Gold, I-CAR Platinum, ASE Blue Seal or an ASE Master
Technician.
