Exhibiting companies continue to commit early for Automotive Service & Repair Week (ASRW) 2012, and to date, 42 companies have reserved space for next year's event. ASRW 2012 is scheduled for Oct. 10-13 at the Morial Convention Center in New Orleans, La.

"The strong sales effort for 2012 is a direct reflection of ASRW 2011, recently held in Orlando. We had our strongest show in years, and as a result of that tremendous effort, manufacturers and suppliers are eager to show their support of the industry by exhibiting again in 2012," said Ron Pyle, president of the Automotive Service Association (ASA). "It's exciting to have such momentum backing us and we're certainly grateful to each of these companies for their early commitments."

"We were really pleasantly surprised about the turnout, especially on Saturday. Just glad to see so many people," commented Dave Poston, OEM1Stop.com. "NACE allowed us the opportunity to showcase our services in a well-organized and exciting environment. Everyone was upbeat and enjoyed very engaging conversations. The networking opportunities for any exhibitor are great. We were glad to have this opportunity and are already getting excited for New Orleans next year!" said Matt Broyles, Collision Automotive Repair Services.
