SAN ANTONIO Aftermarket Auto Parts Alliance, flying the flags of Auto Value and Bumper to Bumper, will host its National Training Convention, Aftermarket Jam, in Nashville, Tenn., March 4-8.
The convention will bring together more than 1,400 parts stores and certified service centers from across North America making it the largest Alliance gathering ever. Attendees can expect to receive top quality training in more than 18 workshops ranging from employee management to how to increase business. Some classes are geared toward basic business practices that any owner could benefit from, while others focus on items of importance for stores or shops.
In addition to world-class seminars, attendees can visit the Vendor Expo with more than 300 sales representatives and executives manning 100 booths. The expo gives stores and service centers a chance to mix and mingle with manufacturers and to gain more insight into their product and training offerings.
“While the Aftermarket Jam provides great workshops along with the Vendor Expo, we believe a main reason for the success of our conventions is giving our people the chance to network and get to know one another, to learn about successes or failures, and compare notes,” said Richard Morgan, president and CEO for Auto Value/Bumper to Bumper. “Plus, they have fun!”
