6 Things We’re Excited to See at NACE Automechanika

Automechanika Chicago and NACE announced their partnership last year and together they 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. The two entities will create an unprecedented partnership focused on training and product discovery for the automotive technicians, shop owners, and parts distributors. NACE Automechanika Chicago will take place July 26-29, 2017 in Chicago and we can’t wait to see these new things:
