ASRW is a stand-alone event specifically created for all automotive service and repair professionals, enabling even more industry segments to join under the umbrella. ASRW currently features the International Autobody Congress & Exposition (NACE), sponsored by the Automotive Service Association (ASA), the only event of its kind designed for the collision repair professional; the Congress of Automotive Repair & Service (CARS), also sponsored by ASA, the premier event for automotive service professionals; as well as Auto Glass Week, dedicated to the automotive glass professional.

The organizations participating in this year’s ASRW Partnering Program include: Association Internationale des Reparateurs en Carrosserie (AIRC), Automotive Industries Association of Canada (AIA), Automotive Service Association – Arizona (ASA-AZ), Automotive Service Association – Colorado (ASA-CO), Automotive Service Association – Michigan (ASA-MI), Automotive Service Association – Texas (ASA-TX), California Autobody Association (CAA), Canadian Collision Industry Forum (CCIF), Collision Hub DirectRepair Shop Network (DRSN), Management Success, Motorist Assurance Program (MAP), National Auto Body Council (NABC), National Automotive Technicians Education Foundation (NATEF), National Institute for Automotive Service Excellence (ASE), National Alliance of Paintless Dent Repair Technicians (NAPDRT), and Women’s Industry Network (WIN).

“NABC has been a proud supporter of NACE and an active participant in the ASRW Partnering Program since its inception. Through the APP we are able to promote the event, attract new attendees, and grow our membership all at the same time,” says Chuck Sulkala, NABC executive director. “Our presence at NACE is vital and allows us the platform with which to highlight our community awareness project, NABC’s Recycled Rides – benefiting families and service organizations in need throughout the United States.”

The ASRW Partnering Program is intended to grow stronger by encompassing even more industry organizations and involvement. To learn more about the advantages and be considered as a future APP participant, contact Pamela Miller, APP facilitator, at [email protected].
