RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, NC — North American automotive suppliers and Japanese car manufacturers will meet to promote expanded business relationships at the 10th annual MEMA/JAMA One on One Business Conference, scheduled to take place Monday, Sept. 27, through Wednesday, Sept. 29, at the Hyatt Regency Hotel in Dearborn, Mich.

The 2004 Business Conference will feature a series of private, prescheduled, company-to-company business meetings between North American suppliers and Japanese OEMs. These business conferences have generated millions of dollars in sales for North American suppliers with Japanese OEMs over the past 12 years.

Approximately 40 original equipment suppliers will be selected from a pool of nearly 100 applicants to meet with the Japanese OEMs during the two days of meetings. Members of MEMA, its OE market segment association, the Original Equipment Suppliers Association (OESA), and its sister association in Canada, the Automotive Parts Manufacturers Association (APMA), will attend the meeting. Senior purchasing and engineering executives from Japan’s car and truck manufacturers will travel to Dearborn for this year’s business conference.
