MIAMI – National Performance Warehouse Companies (NPW) started its FAST Expo weekend with a gala black tie dinner event at the historic Miami Beach Resort, formally known as the The Doral. Located on the 18th floor of the Miami Beach Resort, the famous Starlight Ballroom features panoramic views of the inter-coastal and Miami skyline as well as the acclaimed infinity star effects out its windows, where stars such as Dean Martin, Jackie Gleason and Frank Sinatra once entertained. This event was held to recognize NPW vendors in the “million” dollar-plus purchase category for their efforts to grow with NPW.
This year’s event included dignitaries from AAM, Autometer, APW (Bumper to Bumper), BBB, Centric, Dorman, Edelbrock, Federal-Mogul, MSD, NGK, Standard Motor Products, WIX Filters and several other industry-leading brands. Guests who are members of the Million Dollar Club were presented awards, and their names were placed on the company’s Honor Cup for posterity.
Larry Pacey, CEO and president of the company, offered these remarks about the Club and Expo weekend: “Our FAST Expo is the kick off for our 2015 selling season and most of our suppliers are already in town. We appreciate what all our suppliers do for us and we wanted to do something special for them, so we created this club to commend those at the forefront and hope that we encourage others to make it to the club level as membership benefits our suppliers, our customers and of course, NPW. This year, we continued our growth by adding a new member to the club.”
NPW produces two other annual trade events, the expanded 2015 KARS Expo in Toronto, Canada, on March 13-15, and the CARS Expo in California.
