This past weekend, we traded in our snow boots for flip flops and headed to Miami, where two exciting aftermarket events were taking place.

First up, we had the pleasure of attending the OAC’s inaugural Global Summit at the Hilton Blue Lagoon in Miami. At the event, more than 70 executives from aftermarket manufacturing and distribution businesses from around the globe gathered to learn and share best practices on advancing the international aftermarket industry.

Also this past weekend in Miami, National Performance Warehouse held its annual Million Dollar Vendor award dinner at the Starlight Balloon on South Beach, as a kick-off to a full weekend of events that also included a customer appreciation award dinner and trade show.

Check out today’s AMN video for more details, and stay tuned for the full reports on the OAC and NPW events in Miami.
