KANSAS CITY, MO — Organizers for the annual VISION Hi Tech Training and Expo have announced the completion of the full schedule for the 2013 event, which will be held March 7-10 in Overland Park, Kan., at the Overland Park Convention Center.

“We look forward to being a part of VISION each year. The show and training bring in the best technicians, shop owners and managers from the industry,” says Jorge Menchu, president of AESWave, who will present a session on wiring diagram analysis. “And I’m very excited to have the chance to share important information with them, both in the session and on the show floor.”

“Attendees may have a hard time setting their schedules this year,” says Sheri Hamilton, ASA MoKan executive director and VISION show manager. “We strive to bring the service industry the best training available to VISION each year, and I believe we’ve got a top-notch lineup of trainers and topics for the upcoming event that may have some of our attendees wishing they could be in two places at once.”
