Dallas, TX (PRWEB) August 12, 2013
Automotive Service & Repair Week (ASRW) is pleased to announce two 90-minute panel discussions will take place during ASRW|NACE|CARS addressing electronic parts procurement and certification programs. ASRW will take place Thursday and Friday, Oct. 17-18, with education beginning Wednesday, Oct. 16, at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center in Las Vegas.
“Understanding Today’s e-Commerce Parts Solutions” (session WE10) takes place Wednesday, Oct. 16, at 10:30 a.m. “With the constantly changing e-commerce parts procurement and search engine environment, it is critical that collision repairers understand the impact to their business,” stated Roger Wright, vice president of operations for Sterling Autobody Centers, and moderator of the WE10 session.
“Certification Programs – Are They For You?” (session TH17) takes place Thursday, Oct. 17, at 3 p.m. “Certification is a term that is grossly overused, and more importantly, under-defined. This session should help attendees learn about the variety of certifications available so they can make the decision as to what works best for their businesses,” said Lou DiLisio, Automotive Industry Consulting, and moderator of the TH17 session.
Registration for ASRW is available online at http://www.asrwevents.com. Both sessions are included in the purchase of a Super Pass registration, which includes one ticket per timeslot to the ASRW Conference Program, an Expo Pass to walk the show floor, one ticket to the Opening General Session/Industry Forum, one ticket to the Welcome Party, and a 2013 commemorative pin. Sessions may also be purchased individually for $70 each. Additionally, all ASRW exhibitors are offering a discount of $50 off any conference purchase, and attendees are encouraged to contact any exhibitor directly to redeem.
The 2013 ASRW Conference Program is sponsored by the Alliance of Automobile Manufacturers.
