The Automotive Distribution Network will hold its’ fall shareholder meeting virtually, from Aug. 31 through Sept. 2.
The meeting will bring more than 250 participants representing 37 shareholders and 59 supplier companies for a three-day event.
“We are excited to hold our first virtual meeting,” Network President David Prater said. “We are working harder than ever to ensure our members have the tools to not only survive but thrive in this environment. Getting everyone together to share their experiences is extremely important, perhaps now more than ever.”
The Automotive Distribution Network has partnered AVI OnDemand to host the first-time event.
“AVI has done such a great job on the Network Academy launch, they were a natural choice for our first virtual meeting.,” said Steve Tucker, vice president of sales & marketing. “We have a lot of great information for our members and suppliers that needs an interactive presentation. This technology provides that solution.”
The meeting will close with a tradeshow-style event that will allow the shareholders to participate in more than 200 one-on-one meetings with Network Suppliers. In addition to the staff presentations, the meeting will include a supplier-only event on Day 3.
The Germantown, Tennessee-based Automotive Distribution Network operates under the brands of Parts Plus, Parts Plus Mexico, IAPA and Auto Pride.
