GERMANTOWN, Tenn. – The Automotive Distribution Network hosted more than 1,100 guests for an invitation-only reception on the opening night of the Automotive Aftermarket Products Expo (AAPEX) on Nov. 4 at the Venetian in Las Vegas.
Co-hosted by nearly 200 of the Network’s manufacturer partners, the reception celebrated the group’s recent growth throughout the United States, Canada, Mexico and Puerto Rico.
“The Network’s cocktail reception to help kick off AAPEX has quickly become one of the hottest invites of the event,” said Mike Lambert, president of the Network. “In fact, this year’s attendance is more than double that of our 2010 AAPEX reception. The substantial uptick is indicative of the 25 new members the Network has signed over the last few years in the U.S., Canada, Mexico and Puerto Rico.”
Members from all the Network brands, including Parts Plus, Auto Pride and IAPA, were in attendance, along with the group’s headquarters staff and vendor partners to discuss industry trends and cultivate business relationships in a relaxed setting at the Venetian.
