“Forget stocks and precious metals!  In this economy a smart service and repair shop needs to invest in training, staying sharp, staying current and learning the technical and business skills to remain relevant. MACS Convention and Trade Show delivers on all those fronts and we’ve priced the registration to allow service shop owners to bring multiple technicians,” remarked Elvis L. Hoffpauir, MACS president and COO.

MACS has planned the 2012 convention training sessions to bring a broad variety of technical session topics and trainers at a value not only for A/C specialists, but for all automotive repair techs who want to excel at mobile A/C and engine cooling system repair. Plus, on the morning of Friday, January 20, attendees will have the opportunity to participate in a FREE MACS Section 609 certification training class and test session, by itself a $50 value! Afterwards, they’ll be able to take in the trade show, and after that attend a cutting-edge technical training class for a minimal charge.

MACS attendees will also get the chance to be inspired by Keynote speaker Joe Bacal. Joe overcame cancer and went on to live his dream of off-road racing and conquering the Baja 1000.

The MACS Trade Show kicks off on Thursday, January 19 at 3pm and will feature a chance to network and explore vendor booths while enjoying a happy hour from 5-7pm. On Friday, January 20 attendees can catch up with the exhibitors when the trade show opens at 10:30am. The MACS Trade Show is a repair shop owner’s key opportunity to secure the parts and tools necessary for a successful service and repair season.
