November 3, 2020 - November 5, 2020 , Virtual Experience
AAPEX 2020, scheduled for Nov. 3-5, 2020 at the Sands Expo and Caesars Forum Conference Center in Las Vegas, will not be held as an in-person tradeshow event this year due to the current state of the COVID-19 pandemic and related governmental prohibitions and restrictions on gatherings, businesses, and travel. Instead, AAPEX will provide a virtual/digital experience with many of the show’s elements presented digitally. Given the State of Nevada’s recently announced long-term mitigation strategy for the COVID-19 pandemic, which has indefinitely prohibited events with more than 50 participants, and the severe limitations on international and domestic travel imposed in connection with the pandemic, unfortunately, the traditional in-person event cannot proceed. For additional information on AAPEX, visit the AAPEX site.

"This transition to a technology industry means that the success factors have changed for our industry too. And you’re seeing it here [at AAPEX]. It IS about innovation. If you go back to where we were 5-10 years ago, there is so much new product, new innovation, advanced technology. You can see it at AAPEX." – Paul McCarthy, AASA

"AAPEX is your one big chance to promote and solidify the messaging for your company and brands, it affords everyone the opportunity to see what is changing and/or new in the industry." – Jennifer, Akebono

"AAPEX is the focal point, the epicenter of the Independent Aftermarket for one week out of every year.  Every influencer and decision-maker in the industry is there, and has to be there in terms of staying in tune with industry trends, technology, and developments." – Ted Hughes, MAHLE
