AAPEX Among 50 Fastest-Growing Trade Shows in 2022

AAPEX made TSE’s Fastest 50 Class in two categories: Net Square Feet of Exhibit Space and Number of Exhibitors. 

AAPEX has been recognized as one of the 50 fastest-growing trade shows of 2022 by Trade Show Executive (TSE).

The event annually unites the more than $1.8 trillion global automotive aftermarket in Las Vegas for the latest product innovations and technologies, training and networking.

AAPEX made TSE’s Fastest 50 Class of 2022 in two categories: Net Square Feet of Exhibit Space and Number of Exhibitors. 

In 2022, the number of manufacturers and supplier companies exhibiting at AAPEX more than doubled from the previous year with representation from 44 countries. AAPEX also reported a 93% return to pre-pandemic attendance with targeted buyers representing more than 120 countries.  

TSE identifies the 50 fastest-growing trade shows in three metric categories: net square feet of exhibit space; the number of exhibitors; and total attendance. According to TSE, the class of 2022 hit unprecedented growth rates for all metrics, signaling the strong return of trade shows last year. 

AAPEX will be honored at this year’s Trade Show Executive’s Fastest 50 Awards & Summit, scheduled for May 1-3 at the Miami Beach Convention Center in Florida.  

AAPEX 2023 will take place Tuesday, Oct. 31, through Thursday, Nov. 2, at The Venetian Expo in Las Vegas. Attendee registration will open in early May. Companies interested in exhibiting should visit the Exhibitor Portal for more information.
