Dec. 18, 2014—The Automotive Service Association (ASA) announced on Wednesday that it has already contracted more than 25,000 square feet of exhibit space for the 2015 International Autobody Congress and Exposition (NACE), an increase of 30 percent compared to the same time a year ago.

The number of early contracted exhibitors is also already equal to the show’s total draw in 2013, and the ASA is now forecasting a 50 percent increase in the expo’s size in 2015, compared to 2014.

NACE 2015 will return to the Cobo Center in Detroit, July 23-25, after moving to the Motor City for 2014’s Industry Week.

More than 8,000 attended NACE 2014 and related Industry Week events. Collision repair shop owners came from throughout the U.S. and more than 20 additional countries, according to an ASA release.

For 2015, leading OEs such as Chrysler, Ford, General Motors, Honda, and Nissan are all back with the same or larger space from 2014, according to the ASA.

The ASA also announced the return of major suppliers such as CCC, NAPA, PPG, Chief, Garmat, Celette, Enterprise, Car-O-Liner, Global Finishing, LKQ, UniCure, Painters Supply, and more.
