ASA Announces Must-Attend Training Events at CARS@AAPEX

The Automotive Service Association (ASA) has announced a significant new opportunity for all automotive repair professionals to learn about the biggest changes in the industry since the advent of mass-produced vehicles.

In partnership with AAPEX and AVI, ASA is proud to present CARS@AAPEX, Nov. 2-3 at the Sands Convention Center in Las Vegas. It’s an event designed specifically to teach shop operators how to understand and adapt to the revolutionary changes taking place in vehicle technology so their businesses will thrive and grow.


“The future belongs to those who can do more than repair a car,” said Donny Seyfer, organizer of CARS@AAPEX “It belongs to those who can understand the technology and connect the dots with the opportunities it offers. Shop owners need to become industry analysts. CARS will get them up to speed and show them how to embrace the changes.”


ASA has responded to the challenging issues surrounding these new technologies by creating a comprehensive program featuring exclusive and extensively researched content that presents knowledge-based instruction on attracting and building technicians equipped for the future and how new and existing competitors are changing their game plans to capture shop operators’ market share.


A thoroughly updated version of the Technology and Telematics Forum will show them how to prepare-to-repair now and in the near future, as well as how all of this advanced technology works. Authoritative guest presenters Dr. Anuja Sonalker, a recognized expert on cybersecurity issues, Robert L. Redding Jr., ASA’s Washington, D.C., representative, Bill Long, AASA president, and Aaron Solomon, CEO, Mobile Devices in France, are some of the presenters for this dynamic, three-hour session.


In addition, AVI representatives will conduct their annual technical- and management-education expo Nov. 2-4, and the Automotive Management Institute (AMi) will host four classes on Tuesday and Wednesday, Oct. 31 and Nov. 1, featuring Jeremy O’Neal, veteran shop owner and founder of AdvisorFix, and Chris Cloutier, president and founder of autotext.me.


With support from AAPEX, The Automotive Alliance and other event sponsors, the registration fee for CARS@AAPEX is just $215 for those who sign up prior to Oct. 13, and $265 after that date. However, ASA advises that those who wish to attend should book now because room blocks are selling out fast.
