The Group Annual Member Meeting Set For April In Texas

For the first time ever, members from AutoPride, Federated, Parts Plus and Pronto will meet under one roof.


Members of the Automotive Parts Services Group (The Group), along with supplier partners and associates, will convene in Texas for The Group’s annual member meeting and expo.


With a theme of “Meeting the Challenge,” the in-person conference will be held April 25-28 at the Gaylord Texan Resort in Grapevine.

“For the first time ever, members from AutoPride, Federated, Parts Plus and Pronto will meet under one roof,” said Larry Pavey, CEO of The Group. “By bringing together members of Federated and The Pronto Network to meet with suppliers and other stakeholders, our upcoming annual meeting will be the largest assembly of aftermarket companies and suppliers in our history.”

One of the conference highlights will be one-on-one sessions held between members of The Group and supplier partners. Also on the agenda are informative panels, industry updates, breakout sessions and individual marketing seminars for each banner-marketing brand. A vendor expo also will be held during the conference.


“After meeting virtually for the last two years, we are excited to meet in person as one unified group,” continued Pavey. “This year’s conference and expo will not only be a celebration of collaboration and continued growth, but also an ideal time to plan and prepare for ‘meeting the challenges’ ahead.”

The Automotive Parts Services Group, also known as The Group, was created as a joint venture of the Federated Auto Parts and The Pronto Network Cooperative, also known as The Pronto Network, on behalf of their respective members, creating one of the largest automotive parts supply networks in North America.
