The Network Hosts Nearly Entire Membership, Dozens Of Manufacturer Partners At Spring Meeting

The group's spring meeting in Ft. Worth, Texas, included several new warehouse distributors representing the Parts Plus, Parts Plus Mexico, IAPA and Auto Pride brands.

GERMANTOWN, Tenn. – The Automotive Distribution Network recently hosted dozens of manufacturer partners and its entire membership for the group’s spring meeting in Ft. Worth, Texas, including several new warehouse distributors representing the Parts Plus, Parts Plus Mexico, IAPA and Auto Pride brands.
 
“This gathering of members and vendors provides unique opportunities for our WDs to meet face to face with Network headquarters staff and our manufacturer partners to provide feedback from the street, discuss exciting new promotional opportunities, and explore the latest elements in the association toolbox,” said Mike Lambert, president of the Network. “Discussions like these are now somewhat rare, so our membership utilized this quality time.”
 
The Network also reviewed new marketing, product and IT initiatives, including the license plate lookup tool and WebShop app, which proved to be especially enlightening for companies that have joined the Network since last fall’s meeting, Lambert said.
 
“The Network remains a member-driven organization, so our spring and fall membership meetings help to ensure that the Network is continually developing programs and making product decisions that will benefit our members and their customers at the street level," Lambert said. "It was vital to have input from our newest members from the West Coast and the Northeast and everywhere in between."
