Automotive Service & Repair Week (ASRW) has been named to the 2012 Trade Show News Network’s (TSNN) US Top 250 Trade Shows list. ASRW 2013, comprised of the International Autobody Congress & Exposition (NACE) and the Congress of Automotive Repair & Service (CARS), is scheduled for Thursday and Friday, Oct. 17-18 at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center in Las Vegas, with education beginning Wednesday, Oct. 16.

ASRW 2010 and 2011, held in Las Vegas and Orlando, respectively, were also recognized on past TSNN Top 250 lists. NACE was previously recognized most recently in 2011 on Tradeshow Executive’s Fastest 50 list of the fastest growing trade shows in the United States, and appeared on the Tradeshow Week magazine’s Top 200 list each year through 2010, when the magazine ceased production.

“Out of the tens of thousands of tradeshows that take place in the U.S. each year, inclusion in this prestigious list is an excellent reminder of the size, scope and overall footprint ASRW continues to have not only in the automotive service and repair industry, but the tradeshow industry as well, “ said Lindsay Roberts, ASRW show director. “It’s a great accomplishment and we’re thrilled to be included again this year.”

Additionally, Hanley Wood Exhibitions, which produces ASRW for the Automotive Service Association (ASA), ranked among leading show management organizations of TSNN 250 shows with five shows included on the list.
