Automechanika Chicago, NACE sign letter of intent to combine forces in 2017

Co-production answers the needs of collision and service repair shops

Automechanika Chicago, the largest U.S. trade show dedicated to high-end technical and management-related training for automotive collision and service repair shops, along with NACE (the International Autobody Congress & Exposition), the premiere event for the U.S. collision repair industry, have signed a letter of intent to combine forces starting in 2017.

The co-production between Automechanika Chicago and NACE will create a unified stage using NACE’s strong relationships within the collision and OE community combined with Automechanika Chicago’s global strength throughout the automotive aftermarket. Working in collaboration, the two entities will create an unprecedented partnership focused on training and product discovery for the automotive technicians, shop owners and parts distributors. A combined Automechanika Chicago and NACE show will take place July 26-29, 2017 in Chicago.

With more than 500 exhibiting companies and 10,000 attendees, NACE Automechanika Chicago is set to lead the industry in a showcase of the latest technology covering the entire spectrum of the automotive aftermarket industry.

The explosion of new technology in today’s vehicles means technicians must keep pace. NACE Automechanika Chicago will be THE venue for shop-level training in North America.
