Dates for the 2008 Automotive Aftermarket Products Expo (AAPEX) are Tuesday, Nov. 4 through Thursday, Nov. 6, at the Sands Expo Center in Las Vegas, Nevada, USA. The event runs three days similar to the AAPEX schedule for the past two years and is again co-located with the SEMA Show.
AAPEX features 2,000-plus exhibitors and nearly 5,000 booths showcasing globally recognized brands, new technology and every brand of replacement parts. AAPEX also includes a comprehensive tool and equipment section, a Green Way to spotlight environmentally friendly products and services, and New Product and New Packaging showcases that provide a glimpse of the latest product innovations and packaging trends.
In addition to the trade show, the networking opportunities during AAPEX are unmatched with buyers from virtually every industry segment, including manufacturers, wholesalers, warehouse distributors, jobbers, retailers, independent service providers, technicians, parts stores, manufacturers’ reps, exporters, importers and packagers. AAPEX also draws a strong and growing international audience of buyers from 150-plus countries, and is certified as part of the U.S. Department of Commerce International Buyer Program.
“No other trade event or trade show offers as many qualified buyers and distributors from all segments of the automotive aftermarket,” said Bill Glasgow, Sr., AAPEX show manager. “Our loyal attendees know that a visit to AAPEX gives them a good view of the global aftermarket and its many domestic and international players, all within three days.”
An AAPEX educational program rounds out the event with approximately 15 sessions that deliver critical data and information to help buyers succeed in the global automotive aftermarket.
