April 15, 2013

Automotive Service & Repair Week (ASRW) is becoming a two-day expo, with three education days, according to event officials. ASRW will be held at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center in Las Vegas October 16 through 18.

The show floor will be open October 17 and October 18 from 9:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. daily. The educational days will be held October 16 through October 18.

The change is in response to industry feedback, according to event organizers.

Officials say 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," says 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."
