It seldom happens, but Las Vegas Boulevard will close temporarily on Thursday, Nov. 5 to accommodate 3,000 Aftermarket Auto Parts Alliance customers making their way from the Mirage to AAPEX 2015. AAPEX is slated for Tuesday, Nov. 3 through Nov. 5, at the Sands Expo, with AAPEXedu sessions starting on Monday, Nov. 2.
The Alliance customers, who are automotive technicians and jobbers, will leave the Mirage at 8:45 a.m., PST, and cross Las Vegas Boulevard, arriving at AAPEX at approximately 9:15 a.m. While at AAPEX, customers will participate in pre-arranged meetings with approximately 80 preferred Alliance suppliers who are exhibiting at the event. They also will attend AAPEXedu sessions, which this year will focus on disruptive and emerging technology and its impact on businesses in the auto care industry.
The visit to AAPEX is part of the Alliance’s Aftermarket Jackpot National Convention taking place Nov. 4 through Nov. 7 in Las Vegas. Watch the video below for more information.
AAPEX 2015 is expected to feature more than 2,400 exhibitors, 5,000 booths, 55 AAPEXedu sessions and 39,000 targeted buyers. Approximately 130,000 automotive aftermarket professionals from nearly 140 countries are projected to be in Las Vegas during AAPEX.
