MOKENA, Ill. – Pre-registered buyers now have the opportunity to vote for the best products in this year’s Automotive Aftermarket Products Expo (AAPEX) Product Showcase. Voting will end Friday, Oct. 25 and the winning entries will be announced during AAPEX, slated for Tuesday, Nov. 5 through Thursday, Nov. 7, at the Sands Expo Center in Las Vegas.
Pre-registered buyers have been sent voting instructions and a link to the online 2013 AAPEX Product Extra in which the entries are displayed. The online AAPEX Product Extra also will be sent to more than 63,000 automotive aftermarket professionals two weeks before AAPEX. A printed version of the publication will be mailed on Wednesday, Oct. 9, and additional copies will be distributed during AAPEX.
This year’s Product Showcase entries are displayed in 13 categories: Accessories, Automotive Lighting, Business Tools, Chemicals, Lubricants and Filters, Electrical, General Merchandise, Hard Parts, Innovation, Mobile Electronics, Paint, Body and Equipment, Safety, Tires and Wheels, and Tool and Equipment. All buyers who vote will be entered into a drawing for a $100 gift card.
In addition to using the AAPEX Product Extra to vote, buyers also can use the publication to identify new products to add to their current lines and ultimately, grow their business at AAPEX. In turn, exhibitors’ products in the showcase receive additional exposure to thousands of buyers before AAPEX, giving them the opportunity to grow their bottom line. All entries in the 2013 Product Showcase also will be on display at AAPEX.
