Automotive Service & Repair Week (ASRW) is excited to announce the full schedule for the ASRW Main Stage is now available. Located prominently on the expo floor, the ASRW Main Stage will showcase a different industry speaker every hour during show hours. 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. The ASRW Main Stage is sponsored by Bodyshop Business Magazine.

A total of 12 speakers will comprise the ASRW Main Stage, with six speakers on Thursday and six speakers on Friday. The ASRW Main Stage presentations will take place each hour between 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.

“The powerful slate of speakers and topics planned for the ASRW Main Stage make it the first of its kind, and we believe this area will be a staple at the show for many years to come,” stated Dan Risley, ASA executive director. “Attendees won’t find these speakers in one place at any other event, and this new area is another great example of why ASRW is the place where the industry comes together.”
