BEDFORD, TEXAS — The 2005 Congress of Automotive Repair and Service (CARS) will be held Nov. 3-5 at The Mirage in Las Vegas. CARS 2005, sponsored by the Automotive Service Association’s (ASA) Mechanical Division, is the premier event for automotive service professionals and is unmatched in regard to management seminars, technical courses and exhibitor showcase.

The Mirage is conveniently located to the Sands Expo Center, the home of the Automotive Aftermarket Products Expo (AAPEX). The change of venue for this year’s CARS will bring attendees even close to other industry events taking place in Las Vegas.

The change of hotels also provides more space for the ever-growing Exhibitor Showcase. Last year’s showcase was filled to capacity with more than 50 exhibitors participating in the event. This year offers the opportunity for an even larger Exhibitor Showcase, allowing attendees to experience the latest in automotive repair.

The theme of this year’s show is “Tool Chest for Success.” CARS will again offer cutting-edge technical training and AMI-approved management courses.
