MEMA Aftermarket Suppliers announced the lineup of speakers for “The Future of Warehouse Distribution” panel at the 2023 Vision Conference.

The panel will feature Randy Buller from Parts Authority; Mike Odell from XL Parts & The Parts House; and Todd Leimenstoll from Auto-Wares.

The 2023 Vision Conference is scheduled for April 12 in Rosemont, Illinois.

In this session, innovators in warehouse distribution will discuss where the strength of the channel will take them, including consolidation, new technologies, managing the growth of e-tailing, returning WDs to the consumer sector, shop/customer consolidation and DIFM-segment growth. 

“I am looking forward to moderating this panel of leaders who will share their vision of what’s ahead for warehouse distribution,” said John Chalifoux, COO of MEMA Aftermarket Suppliers and MEMA’s chief sustainability officer. “These executives and their businesses are leading the way. We are honored to have them share their insights, strategies, and growth opportunities with the aftermarket supplier community.” 

Members of MEMA Aftermarket Suppliers will be able to take advantage of pre-conference content on April 11, including the Advocacy Town Hall led by Ann Wilson, senior vice president of MEMA’s government affairs. Wilson will provide members with an update on the fight for repair access and recently re-introduced REPAIR Act.
