As the NORTHEAST 2014 Automotive Services Show rapidly approaches, the Alliance of Automotive Service Providers of New Jersey (AASP/NJ), the state’s largest association of collision and mechanical repairers, is preparing to present their largest show ever, with the entire Meadowlands Exposition Center (MEC) close to selling out all booth space for the first time in the show’s 37-year history. NORTHEAST 2014, presented with support from Platinum Show Sponsor BASF, takes place March 21, 22 and 23, 2014 at the Meadowlands Exposition Center of Secaucus, NJ.
“This is, by far, the most excited we have ever been about a NORTHEAST show,” says AASP/NJ President Jeff McDowell. “We are still about eight weeks out and the facility is just about full. It is amazing. We have never seen a response like this. It just goes to show that hard work and persistence pay off. We have faced some challenges over the 37 years, especially over the last decade or so, but without a doubt, it’s looking like NORTHEAST 2014 will be the best show we have ever presented.”
Exhibitors from across the country (and Canada) have signed up to take part in the show, which is highlighted this year by the appearance of industry icon Chip Foose of the popular television program Overhaulin’. Other events include exclusive industry educational seminars on subjects such as PartsTrader, KPIs, Ford’s F-150 and I-CAR technical training as well as the annual SCRS Northeast Leadership Meeting and the AASP National Board Meeting. Attendees will also get to test their skills and win prizes during the Virtual Spray Painting Tournament, experience hands-on custom painting by Javier Soto, visit the Natural Glass Corvette Association’s Corvette Car Show and much more.
“You will find everything you need to be successful in today’s automotive repair industry at NORTHEAST,” McDowell states. “Plus, you will get a chance to meet Chip and have some fun with all the additional events taking place throughout the weekend. And don’t forget, there is plenty to do after the show with all the shops and restaurants within walking distance and New York City just 10 minutes away. Overall, it’s a great weekend for anyone in our industry. To not take part would be a big loss. I am looking forward to seeing a lot of new faces this year. I can’t wait.”
