More than 2,500 qualified buyers and more than 300 international manufacturers and distributors recently converged on Panama City for the fifth Latin Auto Parts Expo.
The event took place July 25-27 at the ATLAPA Convention Center in Panama.
Exhibitors displayed a wide range of auto parts, components and accessories, including maintenance parts, lubricants, chemicals, diagnostic tools, paint and auto body equipment. Companies from the United States, Europe, Asia and Latin America participated in the show.
The educational conference included presentations by leaders in the automotive industry. Keynote speaker Michael Dunne, an expert on electric and autonomous vehicles, discussed how China’s global ambitions are affected the industry worldwide.
“I would like to thank the professional Latin Expo Group for coordinating and hosting a very successful show,” said Max Douglas of Berryman Products. “My experience and takeaway impression was that it was very professionally executed and the needs of the vendors around me were all met timely and satisfied with the results. The show buyer turnout was great. I was personally pleased with the results and leads accumulated for my after-show follow-up. This show filled a niche for my distribution into the Latin American countries.”
