The annual Global Reception, presented by the Overseas Automotive Council (OAC) of the Automotive Aftermarket Suppliers Association (AASA) on Oct. 31, drew record attendance at its 2017 AAPEX event in Madame Tussauds at The Venetian.
Attendees enjoyed international networking and “appearances” by notable celebrities, athletes and legends at the event’s exciting venue. Reception participants took photographs with lifelike figures of top celebrities during the evening of global aftermarket comraderie.
