The number of companies scheduled to exhibit in the 2004 International Autobody Congress & Exposition (NACE) is up 23 percent over 2003, according to show organizers. With this increased participation, the size of the expo has also exceeded last year’s event by 11,600-square-feet.

DALLAS, TX — The number of companies scheduled to exhibit in the 2004 International Autobody Congress & Exposition (NACE) is up 23 percent over 2003, according to show organizers. With this increased participation, the size of the expo has also exceeded last year’s event by 11,600-square-feet.

This year marks the first time NACE is being held in conjunction with AAIW. The event now takes place in November and has a new day-pattern — NACE opens Wednesday, Nov. 3 and continues through Saturday, Nov. 6 (10 a.m. – 6:00 p.m. daily). There are also several new and expanded educational sessions as part of the NACE Conference, and a special international event – IBIS@NACE – that will focus on the latest issues, trends and developments in the global collision repair industry.

“We’re very pleased with all the excitement generated by NACE this year,” said Ron Pyle, president and chief staff executive of the Automotive Service Association, the show’s sponsor. “There will be a great deal of synergy with the other shows held during Industry Week in Las Vegas. Many attendees and exhibitors are delighted that NACE starts a day earlier than usual and will be open all day on Saturday. The new format and location at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center has everyone buzzing.”

NACE will be held Nov. 3-6, at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center in Las Vegas.
