Post 120 of 267

Automotive professionals across the region are registering in record numbers as the countdown to the Alliance of Automotive Service Providers/New Jersey (AASP/NJ)’s 37th annual NORTHEAST 2014 Automotive Services Show grows near. The association’s flagship event, presented with support from Platinum Show Sponsor BASF and Gold Sponsor Ford Motor Company, takes place in just two weeks on March 21, 22 and 23, 2014 at the Meadowlands Exposition Center (MEC) in Secaucus, NJ.

This year’s show is highlighted by the appearance of automotive icon Chip Foose, a hot rod shop owner, designer and fabricator and star of the reality show Overhaulin’. Foose will be joined by a NORTHEAST record 150 vendors in over 300 booths, selling out the show floor for the first time in the event’s history. “If you need anything in your shop, we have it here at NORTHEAST,” says AASP/NJ President Jeff McDowell. “From the biggest spray booth to the tiniest tool, you’ll find it. The show will also help educate in every way possible with the slate of seminars we have lined up. Aluminum repair, I-CAR training, KPI knowledge, PartsTrader…and so much more. All the hot topics, new techniques, products, and equipment can be found in only one place within 1,000 miles: At NORTHEAST.”
