SPARK2015 gives participants a front row seat to see the aftermarket industry at its dynamic best. Among the various activities planned for student participants, the Luminary Breakfast and Lunch is included, including some of the biggest names from the biggest companies in the aftermarket industry.

New for SPARK2015 is the addition of the Veterans’ category. “The Veterans’ Category makes certain that men and women from our Armed Forces are introduced to our industry and all that it offers in a variety of career paths,” said Multi Parts’ Chairman Barry Cohn.

All SPARK2015 participants will wear Multi Parts’ shirts adorned with the U.S. flag. SPARK2015 veterans and members of the U.S. Armed Forces will have their branch of service embroidered on the sleeve.
