The 2019 AASA OES Special Summit, to be held on August 14, 2019 at Ford Conference and Events Center in Dearborn, Mich., will provide a forum for discussing and identifying specific strategies for new business opportunities through OE dealer parts and services business, OEM-branded parts for the independent aftermarket (IAM) and dealer networks, collision and dealer sales to the IAM. Attendees will include AASA members, AASA prospective members, OE dealers, OEMs and solution/data providers to this channel.

Immediately following the Summit, a meeting will be held for AASA members to discuss strategies and the framework for the new AASA OES Council, which will be launched later in the year.

What 2018 AASA OES Summit Attendees Say ...
“Last year, the OES Summit was the best event I attended all year. It was a day packed with great presentations from various people in the industry and gave insight to what is going on with various manufacturers. I took more notes at this meeting than all the other ones combined. As soon as I found out the date of the 2019 meeting, I highlighted it on my calendar. I can’t wait to see what is in store for this year’s meeting.”
