The one-day event, Nov. 1, in Las Vegas, is designed specifically for mechanical repair shop owners and their managers
North Richland Hills, Texas — ASA National is hosting the Congress of Automotive Repair & Service (CARS) Executive Outlook, a live industry event that will also exclusively feature the 7th Annual Technology & Telematics Forum (TTF), Nov. 1, in Las Vegas.
The one-day CARS Executive Outlook – The Road Ahead event is designed specifically for mechanical repair shop owners and their managers. ASA will also be running a parallel program co-located with the MSO Symposium for the collision industry at the Mandalay Bay Resort & Casino.
“Like so many in our industry, we want to be safe, make smart health decisions but frankly, it is time to get out of the house and get back to seeing each other,” said Ray Fisher, AMAM, ASA president and executive director.
“We’re doing this by kicking off the CARS Executive Outlook in Las Vegas. We’re thankful that technology was there during the pandemic, but we wanted to get back to the opportunities that live networking events provide. Like everyone else earlier this year, we wanted to be cautious as the country got vaccinated. We finalized the virtual ASAX50 event we held with our affiliates in late spring, and then decided to move ahead and plan this great upcoming event, which is our first step towards the return of CARS with the CARS Executive Outlook – the Road Ahead.”
Bob Redding, ASA Washington D.C. representative. added, “ASA is excited to partner once again with the Alliance for Automotive Innovation for the 2021 TTF program titled, A Changing Fleet. This year’s program will focus on the transportation sector’s transition to an electrified future and the implications for independent automotive repair shops.
“The forum will feature a diverse group of speakers and topics throughout the day, each carefully curated to bring the best and most up-to-date information about electric vehicles, the climate crisis and new vehicle technologies entering the market. Attendees will have the opportunity to listen and learn from the panelists, as well as to interact, ask questions, and network.”
At the CARS event, TTF attendees will be able to hear the latest information and interact with industry experts as they discuss the most important issues impacting the automotive service industry in the years ahead — electrification and where auto manufacturers are going.
Topics at TTF will include new car technologies, electric vehicles, smart purchases, manufacturers’ focus on the state of climate change and clean energy. The afternoon segment of CARS Executive Outlook will include industry trends, opportunities for facilities to expand and grow market share, analytics and solutions to talent shortages and much more.
