AAPEX Exhibitor Summit Adds Buyer Panels

AAPEX Exhibitor Summit Adds Buyer Panels

For the first time, buyers from the Alliance Group, AutoZone and O'Reilly Auto Parts will participate in the Exhibitor Summit to discuss what matters most when they visit a booth at AAPEX.

For the first time, buyers from the Alliance Group, AutoZone and O’Reilly Auto Parts will participate in the Exhibitor Summit to discuss what matters most when they visit a booth at AAPEX. The addition of buyer panels will give exhibiting companies first-hand information to use as they prepare for AAPEX 2017, Tuesday, Oct. 31 through Thursday, Nov. 2, at the Sands Expo in Las Vegas.

The Summit is free to current exhibitors and will take place Wednesday, June 21, in Detroit, and Thursday, June 22, in Las Vegas. The event will help both first-time and returning exhibitors stay ahead of the curve. In addition, AAPEX post-show surveys confirm that when exhibitors attend the Summit, they report having a higher return on investment (ROI) and consistently give AAPEX higher marks. To register, visit the AAPEX website, www.aapexshow.com.

In addition to buyer panels, the Summit will include sessions on what’s new at AAPEX 2017 and how exhibitors can maximize their exposure, drive more traffic to their booths and increase their ROI. As an added feature, the Summit being held in Las Vegas will offer one-on-one meetings with AAPEX Event Management staff and official vendors, as well as a Venetian Hidden Assets tour and tours of the new Mobility Park and Sands Expo.

AAPEX represents the $740 billion global automotive aftermarket industry and is expected to feature more than 2,200 exhibiting companies and 44,000 targeted buyers. Approximately 158,000 automotive aftermarket professionals from more than 140 countries are projected to be in Las Vegas during AAPEX and the SEMA Show.

In the case of cordless lights, there is a lot more, starting with more light! The light comes from Light Emitting Diode, or LED, technology. When they were first invented, LEDs were a revolutionary development of electrical science, affecting virtually every aspect of our lives.

Now LED lights are everywhere, and we’re all familiar with them, even in our homes, but the automotive industry has reaped the benefits as much as, if not more than, any other industry. Just like a diode, LEDs allow current flow in only one direction. When current, or electron flow occurs, photons are released.
