You are here
No event helps you jumpstart new opportunities in the automotive aftermarket industry like AAPEX. The proof? A sold-out show floor year after year. After missing our annual gathering last year, the industry is more ready than ever to get back to business. And in 2021, we’re expanding to give our exhibitors even more ways to connect with customers and conduct business with decision-makers from around the world. Expect more features, more ways to showcase your products and innovations, and more areas for emerging technologies like robotics, including Joe’s Garage, an action-packed center with fully equipped service bays, demos, and hands-on experiences.
Historically, more than 70,000 buyers attend AAPEX and the SEMA Show—independent repair garages, national service chains, program groups, warehouse distributors, and other aspects—all eager to see you unveil new solutions, highlight your brand, and showcase your best new products and innovations.
This audience makes the trip to AAPEX to find suppliers, and 83%* of them play a role in purchasing decisions. If you’re not here, your competition will be.
