Registration Open for 2024 AWDA Business Conference

The 77th annual conference is scheduled for November 3-7, in Las Vegas.

The Aftermarket Warehouse Distributors Association (AWDA), a community of the Auto Care Association, announced registration is now open for the 77th annual AWDA Business Conference, sponsored by Dayco, which will take place Nov. 3-7, 2024, in Las Vegas, Nev. The AWDA Conference is an annual business event that brings together the premier companies of the industry for high-level, private, one-on-one business meetings, the Association said.

Founded in 1947, AWDA is the oldest organized group of warehouse distributors and their respective suppliers of parts, accessories, and other supplies for the motor vehicle aftermarket. Celebrating the 77th AWDA Conference is a monumental event and the Auto Care Association expressed it is proud and honored to continue to bring this tradition to the industry. 

“With the addition of the APSG National Conference added to Industry Week this year, the AWDA conference is going to be bigger than ever,” said Ted Hughes, executive director, AWDA. “Attendees at this year’s conference can expect more representation from the industry’s leading independent distributors and additional meeting times added to the schedule, including availability on the show floor during the AAPEX Show on Nov. 5-7. Every measure is being taken to make sure this is the most successful and productive AWDA Business Conference in history.”

All companies must register by Aug. 15, 2024, to participate in the AWDA one-on-one meetings. More details, including company eligibility, hotel and registration information, are available here.
