The 2016 AASA Vision Conference took a deep dive into “Connecting the Aftermarket,” facilitating an open and lively industry dialogue among top automotive aftermarket suppliers and channel partners. AASA selected the Conference theme for discussion because it is more important than ever as vehicles, motorists and repair facilities increasingly connect via mobile apps, e-tailers, telecommunication providers and telematics services. 

AASA gathered the “Who’s Who” among industry leaders and subject matter experts to address our theme, and invited the leaders of the Automotive Warehouse Distributors Association (AWDA) to join the discussion in special morning sessions and Networking Luncheon on April 6.

The 2016 Vision Conference agenda included top retailers, aftermarket supplier executives; connected service providers Voyomotive, OpenBay and AutoMD; representatives from independent service providers, OEMs and government agencies such as NHTSA, U.S. Department of Commerce; and industry analysts from Prestige Economics, The Boston Consulting Group, KPMG and Jefferies.
