NACE Increases Number of Jobber SessionsThe 2004 International Autobody Congress & Exposition (NACE) will offer an expanded jobber program that will include five educational sessions on important topics challenging today’s jobber professionals.
A session on Distance Learning, sponsored by BASF, will cover topics from the Distance Learning Program such as math, color and solutions. There will also be sessions on Distribution Dynamics, also sponsored by BASF, Customer Satisfaction, sponsored by the Automotive Aftermarket Industry Association (AAIA), and Developing a Jobber Business Plan, and Key Performance Indicators … to your Financial Success, both sponsored by DuPont.
“In the past, NACE has only had a few sessions for jobbers. This important market segment will have much more from which to choose at this year’s NACE, and the sessions will be offered over the course of three days, instead of just one,” said Dana Bellantone, NACE show director.
The registration fee for the Jobber Package is $195. The package includes the five sessions, plus the Thursday morning General Session and Keynote Address by Kyle Petty, Thursday night Happy Hour on the Exhibit Floor, the Friday Luncheon with Richard Flint, the Saturday morning General Session and Keynote by Jim “The Rookie” Morris, the NACE Exposition, and admittance to the SEMA and AAPEX shows. Tickets for sessions may also be purchased individually.
NACE, the world’s collision repair event, will be held Nov. 3-6, at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center, Las Vegas, Nevada, USA, and is expected to draw an attendance of 35,000+ from around the globe. It will feature a variety of educational sessions addressing the needs of all industry segments, as well as an Exposition with approximately 500+ exhibiting companies.
