The annual Channel Partner Spotlight is one of the highlights of the event, which is scheduled for Sept. 29 to Oct. 1 in Boca Raton, Fla.

The event brings technology professionals from suppliers and their valued customers to discuss trends and share ideas on how emerging business technologies will drive more business opportunities for independent aftermarket players.

“We are very fortunate to have Larry participate in the Technology Conference,” said Chris Gardner, senior vice president of AASA and the executive director of the AASA Technology Council. “He is a long-time advocate for strong, collaborative relationships and open dialogs between distributors and suppliers, especially in the area of technology.”

“With the proliferation of models, types and ages of vehicles, leveraging technology to address inventory and distribution challenges has become more important,” said Pavey. “Strengthening connectivity throughout the entire supply chain provides enhanced opportunities at each level through improved visibility, effective interaction and reduced costs.”
