Overseas Automotive Council to Celebrate Centennial at AAPEX

This year’s Global Reception will be held at a new location: The San Polo ballroom in the Venetian.

The Overseas Automotive Council (OAC) will celebrate its 100-year anniversary at the OAC Global Reception at AAPEX in Las Vegas on Oct. 31.

The Global Reception is one of the only events in North America that brings together aftermarket buyers from a diverse range of countries with more than 500 attendees from more than 30 countries attending each year. This year’s can’t-miss Global Reception will be held at a new location: The San Polo ballroom in the Venetian, located on the third level of the Venetian Expo.

The Global Reception will give OAC members the opportunity to connect with buyers from across the globe, making it the premier international networking event of the year. The new reception location will allow attendees to network and meet customers in an easy-to-navigate open-floor ballroom.

“We are excited to celebrate OAC’s centennial celebration with an upgraded location for its Global Reception at this year’s AAPEX,” said Ben Brucato, vice president of membership & engagement at MEMA Aftermarket Suppliers. “For 100 years, the council has brought together international importers, distributors and agents who participate in the aftermarket, making it the premier international community for North American manufacturers and exporters.”

Domestic and premier international OAC members can register for the reception for free. Learn more about the reception and pricing on the MEMA website.
