NPW’s 2015 Million Dollar Club Event To Be Held In The Nostalgic Starlight Ballroom In Miami Beach

Third Annual Million Dollar Club Banquet slated for Jan. 9, 2015, kicking off the F.A.S.T. Expo Weekend.


MIAMI, Fla. — National Performance Warehouse Companies will start their 2015 FAST Expo weekend with a gala Friday evening event at the Starlight Ballroom atop the Miami Beach Hotel.

This event is held to recognize NPW vendors in the “million” dollar plus purchase category for their efforts to grow NPW revenue.

The company seeks unique or historical venues in South Florida for this experience. This event in the Starlight Ballroom  in what was known as “the Doral”  for many years is where entertainers and celebrities like the Rat Pack including Dean Martin, Frank Sinatra, Sammy Davis Jr., and Peter Lawford performed . It also is known for its view of the intercoastal and city skyline.

This year’s event will include representatives from AAM, Autometer, Bumper to Bumper, Centric, Dorman, Edelbrock, Federal-Mogul, Holley, MSD, NGK, Standard Motor Products and several other industry-leading brands. Guests who make the list are presented awards and their names placed on the company’s Honor Cup for posterity.

“Our F.A.S.T. Expo is the kickoff for our new sales year and most of our suppliers are already in town,” siad Larry Pacey, CEO and president of the company. “We appreciate all our suppliers do for us and we like to do something special for them so we created this club to honor those at the forefront in helping our business and hope that we encourage others to make it to the Club level as that benefits our supplier, our customers and of course NPW. This year, we added another member to the Club level rank, so we happy to see the membership increase.”

NPW produces two other trade events: the KARS Expo in Toronto, Canada, and the C.A.R.S. Expo in San Jose, Calif.
