AASP/NJ Gearing Up for NORTHEAST 2020 This Coming Weekend


The Alliance of Automotive Service Providers/New Jersey (AASP/NJ) is making final tweaks to its upcoming virtual NORTHEAST Automotive Services Show, happening Aug. 21-23.

The virtual show became a reality when the association was forced to postpone, then ultimately cancel, the in-person version of NORTHEAST 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic.


“We are still disappointed that we were forced to cancel the actual NORTHEAST show,” said AASP/NJ President Jerry McNee. “But we are very excited to be able to bring some semblance of the experience to our exhibitors and attendees through the virtual show starting next weekend.”


The virtual NORTHEAST 2020, a free event, will enable attendees to visit exhibitors’ virtual “booth” pages online, view product information and videos and even schedule virtual meetings with vendors. This will occur on a dedicated link that will be available beginning at 5 p.m EST Aug. 21 via the NORTHEAST website, aaspnjnortheast.com.


Show hours will proceed as originally scheduled: 5 to 10 p.m. Friday, Aug. 21; 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 22; and 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Sunday, Aug. 23.


Tuition-based Collision P.R.E.P. educational sessions, presented by the Washington Metropolitan Auto Body Association (WMABA), will also be available in conjunction with the virtual NORTHEAST 2020, available for registration the weekend of Aug. 21-23. The virtual trade show itself is free for attendees.


AASP/NJ is looking at the virtual show as a courtesy and an optimistic return to some normalcy during these chaotic times.
