The best connection to the auto parts world will be at AAPEX, the Automotive Aftermarket Products Expo, as more than 2,200 companies will be exhibiting at the event at the Sands Expo Centre in Las Vegas from October 31 to November 2, 2017. The event is expected to draw 44,000 targeted buyers. Approximately 158,000 automotive aftermarket professionals from more than 140 countries are projected to be in Las Vegas during AAPEX and the SEMA Show.
The latest products, services and technologies in more than 65 categories will be showcased at AAPEX, while automotive aftermarket manufacturers and suppliers will be ready to answer questions from the visitors to keep them ahead of the curve in today’s high-tech world.
With so much to see and do at AAPEX, the New Product and New Packaging Showcases for the very latest products and innovative packaging designs is a very important aspect of the show that should not be missed.
On the show floor, the participants should necessarily visit the all-new Technology Intersection for a look at technology not yet available in the aftermarket.
A new Mobility Park, located behind the Sands Expo Centre in the LINQ parking lot, will feature today’s aftermarket technology with scan tool engine demonstrations, underhood training, a 3D print area and electric vehicles.For easy navigation, the show floor also will include designated sections for Tools & Equipment, Remanufacturing, Heating and A/C, Paint & Body and the Automotive Warehouse Distributors Association (AWDA).
Another important section not to be missed is the `Let’s Tech’ presentations. ‘Let’s Tech’ returns to AAPEX with a new line-up of short, 20 minutes or less, presentations on new mobile apps, emerging vehicle technologies and technology-driven new products.
Many AAPEXedu sessions also will continue the focus on technology. This year, new partners have joined the education line-up to expand the programme. For the first time, Northwood University will offer sessions as part of the AAPEXedu, while the Automotive Service Association (ASA) and AVI will provide technical training sessions. A day-longREMANedu Conference, which also is part of AAPEXedu, will take place on Monday, Oct. 30. The Conference is a multi-faceted education and networking forum dedicated to remanufacturing.
The Auto Care Association and the Automotive Aftermarket Suppliers Association (AASA) also will host sessions tailored to suit each of the communities within AAPEX.
NARSA – the International Heat Transfer Association – will offer a programme on the latest trends and technologies in heating and cooling systems.
“I was really impressed by the content, particularly on the education side. Administration was very efficient. The registration process was excellent. Being an overseas participant, we were treated like royalty – really pleased,” said AAPEX 2016 attendee, Peter Burne, Business Development Manager, Lintrex Australia.
All Let’s Tech presentations and AAPEXedu sessions, including the REMANedu Conference, are included in the US $40 online attendee registration fee. AAPEX represents the $740 billion global automotive aftermarket 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).
