New GAAS Website Features New Look and Improved Content

The 2009 Global Automotive Aftermarket Symposium (GAAS) will be held Wednesday, May 6 and Thursday, May 7 at the Hyatt Regency O'Hare near Chicago.

CHICAGO – The website for the Global Automotive Aftermarket Symposium (GAAS) has been completely redesigned to provide improved content for attendees of the aftermarket’s most popular executive conference. Visitors to www.globalsymposium.org will see several new features, including a speaker spotlight section and multimedia page. In addition, the registration section of the site contains a new direct link to the Hyatt Regency O’Hare Hotel (headquarters hotel for GAAS 2009) website so attendees can conveniently register online for their hotel accommodations.

The GAAS multimedia page includes a series of video vignettes that answer the question: “Why Do Aftermarket Executives Attend GAAS?” The videos feature Rusty Bishop, CEO, Federated Auto Parts; Camilla Denison, president, Champion Laboratories, Inc.; Mark Finestone, senior vice president, AutoZone; Jeff Olefson, president, Forecast Trading Company; Richard Roy, president and CEO, UniSelect Inc.; and Scott Webb, senior vice president, Pep Boys.

“Our new website supports our desire to fully support GAAS 2009 with fresh content and the latest news for those who plan to attend the industry’s leading educational and networking event,” said Dave Caracci, GAAS chairman. “If anyone is wavering regarding their attendance at GAAS, I invite them to watch our video testimonials that clearly demonstrate the value that industry leaders receive each year.”

The 2009 Global Automotive Aftermarket Symposium (GAAS) will be held Wednesday, May 6 and Thursday, May 7 at the Hyatt Regency O’Hare near Chicago.

A copy of the symposium brochure and registration information is now available at www.globalsymposium.org. Early-bird registration savings of $200 are available until March 20.
