In an effort to provide a safe environment for shareholders and supplier partners to build meaningful and productive relationships, Automotive Parts Associates (APA) will be hosting the 39th Annual Shareholders & Suppliers Conference in a virtual format later this month.
The virtual event is scheduled for March 23-25.
Armed with feedback on similar events, the APA event will utilize the same meeting platform as the successful Virtual AAPEX Experience for all stakeholders to network and collaborate in private one-on-one meetings that exemplify the core values of the 2021 theme “Making Connections.”
“While we would love to see everyone’s faces this year, we must continue to make safety a top priority for everyone,” said APA Creative & Marketing Manager Sara Griewing. “We are committed to the health and safety of all of our attendees, and we’ve worked hard on creating an engaging interactive experience for everyone to come together and get down to business.”
In order to ensure the success of the virtual experience, APA will be providing HD webcams as well as other beneficial tech items to all participating shareholders to facilitate productive face-to-face meetings with suppliers as well as with other shareholders. The custom goodie boxes also will include a wide variety of snacks and other items for attendees to enjoy during the event sessions.
The event is scheduled to return to a live format in 2022. Next year’s event is scheduled for March 16-18, 2022, at the InterContinental Buckhead Atlanta hotel.
