Back by popular demand, AAPEX will offer two free general sessions on the top automotive trends and outlook for 2023 to help attendees stay ahead of the curve and prepare for the future.
AAPEX will take place Tuesday, Nov. 1, through Thursday, Nov. 3, at The Venetian Expo in Las Vegas.
On Nov. 1, Todd Campau, associate director, Aftermarket Solutions at S&P Global Mobility (formerly IHS Markit), will share his annual overview of key industry trends and new insight affecting the global aftermarket in “5 Automotive Trends Impacting the North American Aftermarket.”
From the ever-changing new-vehicle market to the aging of the fleet, the automotive aftermarket continues to evolve. Campau will cover how these new-vehicle trends are impacting aftermarket repair opportunities faster than ever before.
On Nov. 2, Nathan Shipley, executive director and industry analyst for The NPD Group’s Automotive Aftermarket division, will lead “Aftermarket Outlook 2023.”
Shipley will cover the trends observed both in general retail and the aftermarket over the last two years and why understanding what drove sales performance during that time is critical for predicting what the near-term future might look like for the industry. The presentation also will provide perspective on how macro trends – both-industry specific and more general in nature – might play into future results.
Both general sessions will take place from 11 a.m. to noon on their respective days in The Venetian, Marco Polo 701. Registration is not required. However, both sessions are expected to reach maximum capacity and therefore, attendees are encouraged to plan ahead and arrive early.
