GERMANTOWN, Tenn. The upcoming national convention of the Automotive Distribution Network, to be held Feb. 26-29, 2012, is likely to be the Network’s largest gathering yet. An unprecedented number of early registrants have already booked at the Wynn Las Vegas Resort, according to Mike Lambert, president of the Network.
“Perhaps a further indication that our industry is climbing out of these challenging economic times, we’ve had an overwhelming response to next year’s gathering at the Wynn,” Lambert said. “Shortly after announcing our 2012 Network National Convention, we quickly filled our initial allotment on the property and have secured additional rooms at the Wynn to accommodate the expected overflow crowd of WD reps, jobbers, service dealers and manufacturer partners on hand in Las Vegas.”
In anticipation of the large number of attendees, the convention’s manufacturers expo, featuring the latest aftermarket technology, products and services provided by the Network’s vendor partners, has been expanded to 50,000 square feet. In addition, the Network says it is signing more seminar speakers than ever, enabling guests at all levels of parts distribution to take advantage of these real-world training opportunities.
