Automotive Parts Associates (APA) has released details for its 39th Annual Shareholder and Supplier Conference, scheduled for March 18-20, 2020, at the seaside Hyatt Regency Mission Bay & Marina hotel in San Diego.
At the 2019 conference in Dallas, APA unveiled a new format consisting of two sessions of one-on-one meetings, which provided more interaction and valuable learning time between shareholders and suppliers. APA will continue the new format in San Diego.
The annual event also will include sessions for organizational updates that will highlight new feature programs and initiatives, as well as social beach-side gatherings for additional networking opportunities.
“The annual meeting is a valuable event for our shareholders to connect with each other and with suppliers to support each other as partners,” noted Jim Holmquist, APA board of directors chairman. “With only so many hours in the day, we are thrilled with the success of the new two-session format, as a way to give everyone more time to collaborate, develop business relationships and learn about new products.” APA will provide more details on the conference as the event dates draw closer.
