ORLAND PARK, Ill. Online registration officially opened on Oct. 1 for the 2009 Heavy Duty Aftermarket Week (HDAW), scheduled for Feb. 16-19, 2009 at the Rosen Centre Hotel & Resort and Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Fla.
HDAW is the largest North American gathering of the independent heavy duty industry. More than 1,800 managers and executives from 17 countries including distributors, manufacturers, service providers, educators and media attended the 2008 conference.
"HDAW ’09 is shaping up to be one of the best industry meetings ever in our industry. The education programs are more diversified in content, and will have many take-aways including DVDs of the presentations," said Marc Karon, president, Total Truck Parts Inc. and co-chairman, HDAW ’09. "The trade exhibition will have additional suppliers and special focus areas called business building centers to promote particular products. In addition, there will be expanded one-on-one opportunities for suppliers and distributors. Finally, there are networking opportunities for distributors and suppliers including a golf tournament which will precede the HDAW ’09 event. Throw in Florida in February, and this is one can’t-miss event."
Registration includes a comprehensive distributor education program, pre-scheduled one-on-one business meetings, an all-industry awards luncheon, multiple networking opportunities, receptions and meals and a 100,000-square-foot aftermarket-focused product expo.
