SANTA MONICA, Calif. (March 14, 2017) — Registration is now open for the newly combined NACE Automechanika, which takes place July 26-29 at McCormick Place West in Chicago.
The show, designed for automotive service and collision repair shops, will feature four days of training, show floor exhibits and multiple co-located events. The show is hosted by the Automotive Service Association, which sponsors NACE, and Messe Frankfurt, which sponsors Automechanika shows around the world.
The education portion will focus on current topics and technologies.
"Today's technicians and shop owners want to know how to find the problems they are faced with effectively and how to repair them the first time around. They want to learn the latest technology and keep as much of the work as they can in-house while engaging in a highly competitive industry," said Pete Meier, director of training for the UBM Automotive Group, the show's organizer.
"The lineup of independent education and premiere corporate training programs that NACE Automechanika Chicago has assembled for this July's event is beyond that of any training program to date. This is the 'must attend' event for every student tech, working tech, shop owner, and educator in the industry."
The education seminars will include diagnostic courses focusing on drivability concerns and electrical issues; underhood systems, undercar best practices and strategies for brake, transmission and emissions service; managerial courses on leadership, shop management and revenue streams; and updates on hybrid and alternative fuel vehicles.
All mechanical-related training, both technical and management-based, is offered for no cost to attendees when they register with a code from one of NACE Automechanika Chicago's sponsors that include: Automotive Training Institute, ATSG, CARQUEST Technical Institute, Federal-Mogul Motorparts, Mitchell 1 and the National Alternative Fuels Training Consortium.
Attendees who complete courses throughout the training event will receive certificates for continuing education credits and business training requirements.
Additionally, the Business Outlook Conference, scheduled for two half-day sessions, offers information, insight and awareness of the economy, legislation and technology and their impact on the automotive industry and market.
