The 2012 Trade Show News Network’s “U.S. Top 250 Trade Shows” list has named Automotive Service & Repair Week (ASRW) for the third year in a row.
The list represents the top 250 trade shows held last year ranked by net square footage in the U.S.
This year's ASRW event will become a two-day expo with three days of educational seminars.
ASRW is comprised of the International Autobody Congress & Exposition (NACE) and the Congress of Automotive Repair & Service (CARS).
“Out of the tens of thousands of tradeshows that take place in the U.S. each year, inclusion in this prestigious list is an excellent reminder of the size, scope and overall footprint ASRW continues to have not only in the automotive service and repair industry, but the tradeshow industry as well," said Lindsay Roberts, ASRW show director. “It’s a great accomplishment and we’re thrilled to be included again this year.”
In addition, Hanley Wood Exhibitions, which produces ASRW for the Automotive Service Association (ASA), ranked among leading show management organizations with five shows included on the list.
ASRW 2013 will be held Oct. 17-18 at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center in Las Vegas, with education beginning on Oct. 16, 2013.
