In a post-show survey, 93 percent of attendees rated AAPEX 2015 as having met or exceeded their expectations, with nearly 43 percent noting that AAPEX “far exceeded” their expectations.
AAPEX 2015 was held in November in Las Vegas and featured an all-new look and many new programs aimed to keep attendees ahead of the curve in today’s high tech and ever changing industry.
Based on survey results, the most important reasons to attend AAPEX are to find new products and innovation, find new suppliers, and network and maintain existing relationships.
Attendees who filled out the survey commented that AAPEX 2015 was the most productive week of the year, a “must” for anyone in the automotive industry, and by far the best place to do face-to-face business and see existing suppliers.
“I was very pleased with the training and networking perspective that AAPEX brought to the table. As a first-time attendee, my expectations were high and now the bar is set very high due to my experience. Thank you for the great experience and training,” noted Sean Patterson, sales technician, Diesel Conversion Specialists, Kalispell, Mont. “Lastly, the AAPEX staff was very helpful in scheduling, transportation, and knowledge of the events.”
The online survey was open from Nov. 6 through Nov. 23, 2015, and had a 10 percent response rate from AAPEX 2015 attendees.
AAPEX 2016 will be held Tuesday, Nov. 1 through Thursday, Nov. 3, at the Sands Expo in Las Vegas, with AAPEXedu sessions starting on Monday, Oct. 31.
