More live blogging from Vegas. Education seems to be the theme of this year’s show, as many of the educational seminars have been very well attended. A seminar on Tire Pressure Monitoring Systems drew more than 200 interested operators and managers this morning (check our website in coming days for a Web-exclusive look inside this topic). And the AOCA Town Hall meeting was a wealth of information on everything from “going green” to GF-5 motor oil (more on that in the previous post). All in all, despite a bumpy economy and attendance numbers that lag last year’s record event, the attitude at the 2008 AOCA Convention & Fast Lube Expo seems to be one of guarded optimism. The operators here are intent on surviving the tough times and prospering in the good ones.
