Registration For All New Aftermarket eForum Event Now Open

For the first time, eForum will be co-located with this year's Global Automotive Aftermarket Symposium.

BETHESDA, Md. – The Automotive Aftermarket Industry Association (AAIA) has announced that registration is now open online for the Aftermarket eForum, which takes place May 22-23 at the Hyatt Regency O’Hare in Rosemont, Ill. Keynote speakers will address logistics and supply chain management, telematics and competition in the age of the connected car, and the new normal marketplace enabled by online retailers and virtual distributors.
“We listened to industry leaders to learn what they want when they invest time and money to attend a conference. This year’s Aftermarket eForum responds to their needs with a tighter schedule and strong talent and content combined with the co-location with GAAS,” said Scott Luckett, chief information officer, AAIA. “As the world of business and technology is rapidly evolving, the eForum delivers unique insights and strategies for aftermarket businesses to stay ahead of the curve.”
Event organizers for eForum have co-located the event, for the first time, with the Global Automotive Aftermarket Symposium (GAAS). GAAS, May 21-22, will immediately precede the Aftermarket eForum and offer busy industry decision-makers the opportunity to attend both conferences with a minimum of time away from the office and travel costs. The proceeds of both events benefit the Global Automotive Scholarship Fund.
Aftermarket eForum will open with an afternoon general session and executive-level speakers after GAAS concludes on May 22. The conference continues on the morning of May 23 with several breakout sessions designed to explore technology topics in greater depth. The cost to attend is $450 for AAIA members and $650 for non-members. Attendees who register for both GAAS and eForum save $250 on the combined registration fee.
The final agenda and speaker line-up will be announced soon.
