BETHESDA, MD — Planning is nearly complete for the 57th Annual AWDA-AAIA Business/Education Conference. Scheduled for Oct. 31 through Nov. 6, this year’s event exemplifies the theme “Strength in Unity” -“unity” in joining forces with AAIA, “unity” among the various trade shows of Automotive Aftermarket Industry Week and most of all “unity” among members of the aftermarket parts distribution business.
A key feature of the conference will be the series of pre-scheduled one-on-one meetings between warehouse distributors and their vendors. Management of these sessions will be unchanged and the quality of buyer/seller interaction, top-notch. The opening general session will highlight the year’s accomplishments for AWDA and AAIA and recognize the contributions of several outstanding individuals. For those interested in combining education with business, the University of the Aftermarket will again hold its popular University Forum event, which this year will be sponsored by Babcox Publications and Motormite/Dorman.
Registration materials for warehouse distributors will be mailed on June 18, and manufacturers and affiliates will receive their materials one month later. For more information, contact Larry Northup at with AAIA at 301-654-6644 or [email protected].
