Why Attend One of These Events?
Our team attends, and participates in, some of the most prestigious events within the collision repair industry. In addition to hearing from our own expert speakers, attendees will benefit from hearing presentations by industry leaders from other organizations, such as CEICA, ASA, AMI, I-CAR and SCRS. These events will typically highlight important industry issues, relevant business trends, repair solutions, rapid advancements in vehicle technology that are new to the industry, all designed with the intention of helping attendees to stay informed and providing practical real-world advice for how to implement innovative new procedures.
One of the highlights of attending these events for our team members is meeting the people who really use our services and secure honest feedback from them. This feedback is invaluable, as it helps us to make product and service enhancements that our customers really want. For example, we recently began operating on Saturdays in response to customer feedback.
2017 Events With the asTech™ Team
Coming up in July, we’ll be attending the NACE Automechanika Show in Chicago. The asTech™ booth is located in position 1475 this year, directly across the aisle from the OEM Coliseum and the I CAR stage. This year marks the first time that Automechanika, the largest U.S. trade show dedicated to high-end technical and management-related training for automotive collision and service repair shops, and NACE, the International Autobody Congress & Exposition, are combining forces. Our entire asTech™ management team will be in Chicago for this event, held from July 26 to 29th, 2017. It will be a full week of important meetings with key clients, hosting educational sessions at our booth, conducting multiple live asTech™ demonstrations, serving on key industry panels, and introducing our new suite of full service options for repair shops: asTech™ patented remote solution, in-shop asTech™ technicians, and asTech™’s on-site branded mobile van service.
Later in the year, we will head west to participate in the SEMA (Specialty Equipment Market Association) Show. SEMA is the event we, like many collision industry professionals, look forward to all year. Held at the Convention Center in Las Vegas, Nevada, from October 31 to November 3, 2017, there is much to see and learn for anyone in the collision repair industry. At SEMA, you can catch a glimpse of the future and view first-hand, the innovations that will change and shape the industry in the coming years. In previous years, asTech™ and our parent company, Collision Diagnostic Services have received awards and recognition, including being named one of the best new products in 2015 and receiving the Robert Author Smith award in 2016.
We look forward to meeting more of our current and future customers and learning as much as we can at these upcoming events in 2017. To stay informed about all of our upcoming events, follow us on Facebook or Twitter.
