AAPEX Takes Exhibitor Summit to Three U.S. Locations

LAS VEGAS, Nev. – April 9, 2015 – AAPEX is taking an all-new approach to the 2015 Exhibitor Summit by holding this year’s event in three U.S. locations instead of Las Vegas to make it more convenient for exhibitors to attend and subsequently increase their return on investment from AAPEX.

The Exhibitor Summit will be held Tuesday, June 9, at the New York LaGuardia Airport Marriott; Wednesday, June 10, at the Delphi Innovation Center in Troy, Mich.; and Thursday, June 11, at the Embassy Suites Dallas, Dallas/Fort Worth (DFW) International Airport North at Outdoor World.

The Summit will introduce exhibitors to the many new features planned for AAPEX 2015 to help them stay ahead of the curve. Sessions also will help exhibitors prepare for AAPEX, generate leads before the event and maximize their exposure before, during and after AAPEX. Additional sessions will address how buyers think and approach exhibits, and how to effectively use resources provided by the U.S. Department of Commerce when meeting with international buyers at AAPEX. The daylong Summit will close with an important announcement and discussion pertaining to changes in store for AAPEX 2016.  

All Summit sessions are free and both veteran and first-time exhibitors will benefit from the program. For more information and to register, visit the AAPEX Exhibitor Summit.

AAPEX 2015 dates are Education: Monday, Nov. 2 through Thursday, Nov. 5;
Exhibits: Tuesday, Nov. 3 through Nov. 5, at the Sands Expo Center, Las Vegas, Nev.

AAPEX 2015 is expected to feature more than 2,400 exhibitors, 5,000 booths and 39,000-targeted buyers. Approximately 130,000 automotive aftermarket professionals from nearly 140 countries are projected to be in Las Vegas during AAPEX.

AAPEX represents the $477 billion global aftermarket auto parts industry, and is co-owned by the Auto Care Association and the Automotive Aftermarket Suppliers Association (AASA), the light vehicle aftermarket division of the Motor & Equipment Manufacturers Association (MEMA).
