No event helps you jumpstart new opportunities in the automotive aftermarket industry like AAPEX. The proof? A sold-out show floor year after year. Despite COVID-19 concerns, in 2021 the automotive aftermarket’s premier event drew nearly 35,000 AAPEX targeted buyers, including independent repair garages, national service chains, program groups, warehouse distributors, and other segments.
This year’s event will feature an enhanced Repair Shop HQ on Level 1 of The Venetian Expo for the service and repair community. Joe’s Garage, a built-out shop on the show floor, will expand to 10 bays for product and equipment demonstrations and hands-on learning. A new Transmission Supplier Section will join other dedicated areas in Repair Shop HQ, including Diagnostics/Telematics, Alternative Fuel, Tire Servicing and Tool & Equipment.
Level 2 of The Venetian Expo will continue to be transformed into Aftermarket Central to showcase inventory that service and repair professionals, auto parts retailers and warehouse distributors need to meet customer demand and keep cars on the road.
For the first time, AAPEX will expand into the Caesars Forum Conference Center with a new Global Products Zone!
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 91%* of them play a role in purchasing decisions. If you’re not here, your competition will be.
