NACE Automechanika 2017 Recap & Show Specials

NACE Automechanika 2017 featured 600 exhibiting companies, including Induction Innovations, and over 10,000 attendees in Chicago's McCormick Center. Automechanika is known globally in the automotive aftermarket and NACE is strong in OE and collision. NACE and Automechanika joined forces this year to focus on training and product discovery and it was a fine show overall.

What We Experienced

There were many seminars, events and training sessions including:

  • Collision Repair Education Foundation Golf Fundraiser
  • Collision Industry Conference (CIC)
  • Advanced Technology & Diagnostic Repair Forum
  • MSO Symposium
  • Business Outlook Conference
  • International Night
  • Night at the Museum

Several special areas of interest on the show floor:

  • Automechanika Train Station
  • Career Connection
  • Commitment to Training Lounge
  • Hot Spot Welding Center
  • Innovation Zone
  • OE Coliseum
  • Scan-a-Palooza
  • Spray Zone
  • Shop of the Future
  • Tool Alley (we had a Mini-Ductor Venom in this section)
  • Truck Competence
  • Virtual Stage

We also visited with several of our distributors and users of our tools. We discussed new applications, did live demonstrations, offered a drawing for a Mini-Ductor 12V, handed out marketing materials, and learned about the future of the collision industry. NACE Automechanika 2018 will take place in Atlanta from August 8-10. We hope to see you there!
