The Automotive Distribution Network celebrated the opening of AAPEX with its 10th annual Network Reception at The Venetian in Las Vegas. With more than 1,200 attendees, the Network lived up to its name by welcoming its members, vendor partners and international affiliates.
“This year’s cocktail reception is a welcome indication that we are networking like we never have before,” said David Prater, president of The Network. “This has always been a huge event, but it continues to grow each year. The increased participation by our Latin American members and our Nexus partners is especially exciting.”
Earlier this year, The Network welcomed its first member to serve Central America, as well as its 10th Parts Plus Mexico member, strengthening the international reach and reputation of the Parts Plus brand. Network members from throughout the U.S., Canada, Mexico and Guatemala gathered at The Venetian reception, along with fellow Nexus Automotive International members representing dozens of countries, and more than 200 vendor partners, to cultivate relationships through open, in-person communication.
