NACE Kicks Off Today; Television Shows Taping at SEMA

The International Autobody Conference and Exposition (NACE) kicks off today at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center in Las Vegas. The show, which runs through Saturday, has more than 500 companies exhibiting at the show and is part of the Automotive Aftermarket Industry Week (AAIW).

Also part of the AAIW, the Specialty Equipment Manufacturers Association (SEMA) Show 2004 has attracted some high-profile press, including the taping of Speed network's Car Crazy television show in the lobby of the north wing of the Las Vegas Convention Center. Also on-hand is The Learning Channel's show Overhaulin', which is completely rebuilding a car (unbeknownst to the car's owner) in the convention center's south wing. The show normally gives the build team five days to rebuild a custom car, but this week the team has only three days, as they must finish taping the show--and the car--before the end of the SEMA show. The episode will air later in the season.
