New GAAS Website Features New Look and Improved Content

The
website for the Global Automotive Aftermarket Symposium (GAAS) has been
completely redesigned to provide improved content for attendees of the
aftermarket’s most popular executive conference. Visitors to www.globalsymposium.org
will see several new features, including a speaker spotlight section
and multimedia page. In addition, the registration section of the site
contains a new direct link to the Hyatt Regency O’Hare Hotel
(headquarters hotel for GAAS 2009) website so attendees can
conveniently register online for their hotel accommodations.

The GAAS multimedia page includes a series of video vignettes that
answer the question: “Why Do Aftermarket Executives Attend GAAS?” The
videos feature Rusty Bishop, CEO, Federated Auto Parts; Camilla
Denison, president, Champion Laboratories, Inc.; Mark Finestone, senior
vice president, AutoZone; Jeff Olefson, president, Forecast Trading
Company; Richard Roy, president and CEO, UniSelect Inc.; and Scott
Webb, senior vice president, Pep Boys.

“Our new website supports our desire to fully support GAAS 2009 with
fresh content and the latest news for those who plan to attend the
industry’s leading educational and networking event,” said Dave
Caracci, GAAS chairman. “If anyone is wavering regarding their
attendance at GAAS, I invite them to watch our video testimonials that
clearly demonstrate the value that industry leaders receive each year.”

The 2009 Global Automotive Aftermarket Symposium (GAAS) will be held
Wednesday, May 6 and Thursday, May 7 at the Hyatt Regency O’Hare near
Chicago.

A copy of the symposium brochure and registration information is now available at www.globalsymposium.org. Early-bird registration savings of $200 are available until March 20.
