MACS 2019 brings ‘A/Ccess’ to mobile A/C technical information
Anaheim, Calif.—Over 700 attendees took advantage of more than 20 training classes and networking events at the recent 2019 Mobile Air Conditioning Society (MACS) Training Event and Trade Show, Feb. 21-23, at the Anaheim Marriott in Anaheim. It’s theme was “A/Ccess” to mobile A/C technical information.
“This year’s attendees were particularly engaged and enthusiastic about our classes and we are grateful for all the presenters, exhibitors and sponsors who participated and supported this year’s MACS event,” said Elvis L. Hoffpauir, MACS president and COO.
Exhibit space for the trade show portion sold out early, with 72 exhibitors from the U.S. and abroad filling 84 booths.
A highlight of the event was the keynote speech and luncheon with guest speaker Jimmy Shine of Shine Speedshop, who discussed his varied TV career, his land speed record runs at Bonneville Salt Flats, and building hot rods and cool cars for celebrities such as Billy Gibbons.
All sessions were all well attended, including the “MACS Fluid Committee” meeting, “Mobile A/C Best Practices” and “Section 09 Certification,” both by Gary Villa, and “Diagnosing Multiplexed Data Bus Networks,” by Jerry Mungle from ACDelco.
“We are looking forward to our 40th anniversary Training Event in 2020 at the Gaylord Opryland Hotel and Convention Center in Nashville next February 19-22,” Hoffpauir said.
