The Alliance of Automotive Service Providers of New Jersey (AASP/NJ) have scheduled a weekend of innovation, technology and training for NORTHEAST 2006, the association’s flagship event and largest regional show of its kind. The show will be held March 24-26 at the Rockland Community College Arena in Suffern, NY.

"When we came up with the theme of innovation, technology and training, we really took it to heart," says AASP/NJ President Tom Elder. "We set out to schedule the best and the latest in all three areas for this year’s show and I think we succeeded."

The show kicks off on Friday morning with the ATI/AMI management course and closes two days later with Sunday afternoon’s upper body dimensioning demonstration in the newly tented demonstration area. Durng the rest of the weekend, you can find everything from I-CAR to hybrid repair to spot welding to "priming at the speed of light."

"I think we are covering the entire automotive spectrum this year," Elder adds. "With both collision and mechanical work overlapping more and more these days, NORTHEAST is the perfect place to get the proper training and education in order to stay ahead of the game. To not take advantage of these opportunities is to fall behind."
