Registration Open for AAPEX International Matchmaking Program

The Auto Care Association and the U.S. Commercial Service, will connect US exhibitors with international buyers.

The Auto Care Association, in partnership with the U.S. Commercial Service, is excited to offer United States exhibitors attending the 2022 Automotive Aftermarket Products Expo (AAPEX) Show in Las Vegas a unique opportunity to connect with international buyers interested in U.S. products and services in the auto care industry. Automotive aftermarket businesses interested in entering or increasing their presence in the international market are encouraged to consider participating in the Auto Care Association’s International Matchmaking Program at AAPEX 2022.

The International Matchmaking Program, presented by the Auto Care Association, will match U.S. exhibitors with international buyers based on their products of interest and will schedule one-on-one meetings Nov. 1-2 at the Venetian Expo.

Companies participating in the matchmaking program will receive a final one-on-one meetings schedule, including buyer contact information, approximately one week prior to AAPEX. There is no cost to participate in this program.

“What a great opportunity and matchmaking event at AAPEX this year,” said Joseph De Santino, president, JDS Worldwide Corp., and previous matchmaking program participant. “I took a chance and it has paid off handsomely. The company options, the scheduling and the quality of buyers were on point.”

The International Matchmaking Program is part of the Market Development Cooperator Program (MDCP) award the Auto Care Association received from the U.S. Department of Commerce to help the automotive aftermarket industry increase its exports.

The deadline to register for the International Matchmaking Program is Oct. 14.
