STAUNTON, Va. — Bigger and better than ever, the 56th annual Cavalcade of Customs and Training Expo, hosted by Federated Auto Parts and KOI Auto Parts, is expected to attract another record-setting crowd. Scheduled for Jan. 8-10 at the Duke Energy Convention Center in Cincinnati, the Cavalcade is not only one of the nation’s top custom car shows, but is also one of the foremost training expos in the country for shop owners and service technicians.
“Every year, the Federated-KOI Cavalcade of Customs is one of the highest attended and most talked about custom car shows in the country,” said Phil Moore, senior vice president of Federated Auto Parts. “Dave Wesselman and the team at KOI have put together an exceptional schedule of training classes conducted by Federated supplier partners, plus special professional development seminars for shop owners and managers presented by Federated executives on such topics as shop management and electronic cataloging.”
