ASA Announces New Dates, Location for MSO Symposium, Technology Telematics Forum
NORTH RICHLAND HILLS, TEXAS, Oct. 26, 2018 – The Automotive Service Association is pleased to announce the dates and location for the 8th Annual MSO Symposium and Technology Telematics Forum (TTF).
Next year’s events will coincide with the Collision Industry Conference (CIC) in Indianapolis, Ind., July 24-25, 2019. The two events were originally scheduled to take place during NACE Automechanika in 2019.
Due to pending changes surrounding the tradeshow, ASA’s Board of Directors elected to move the event this year to coincide with CIC.
ASA will be working closely with Messe Frankfurt, the world’s largest trade fair, congress and event organization, based in Frankfurt, Germany, regarding the future direction of NACE Automechanika. Announcements will be made in the near future regarding 2019, 2020 and beyond.
“We are looking forward to the continued growth and success of both programs,” said ASA Chairman Roy Schnepper, AAM. “The MSO Symposium has evolved into the marquee event of the year where the most influential people in the industry gather. We appreciate the support we receive from all the industry stakeholders including insurers and OEMs.”
Bob Wills, AAM, ASA’s chairman-elect, said ASA understands that there are many questions surrounding the future of the NACE Automechanika tradeshow.
“We are working very closely with our partners at Messe Frankfurt to make decisions as quickly as possible,” Wills said. “We will make those details available as soon as possible.
“We recognize the needs and value derived from a tradeshow have shifted, and we are devising a plan that best addresses those changing needs for our members and the industry as a whole.”
