The Automotive Aftermarket Products Expo (AAPEX) has announced three new opportunities for companies in the remanufacturing industry to grow their business at AAPEX 2014.
The new “Remanufacturing Experience at AAPEX” will feature a REMANedu Conference and private one-on-one meetings on Monday, Nov. 3, and an invitation-only reception for Remanufacturing Section exhibitors and guests on Wednesday, Nov. 5. AAPEX is slated for Tuesday, Nov. 4 through Thursday, Nov. 6, at the Sands Expo Center in Las Vegas, Nev., with AAPEXedu sessions starting on Nov. 3.
The new “Remanufacturing Experience at AAPEX” is co-hosted by the Motor & Equipment Remanufacturers Association (MERA) – the remanufacturing division of the Motor & Equipment Manufacturers Association (MEMA) – and the Auto Care Association.
“Remanufacturing is a growing sector of the automotive aftermarket, and the new ‘Remanufacturing Section at AAPEX’ offers new opportunities for aftermarket companies to grow their business,” said John Chalifoux, president and COO, MERA.
“The Auto Care Association strongly supports new opportunities to promote the sustainability of engine rebuilding in the aftermarket, and the ‘Remanufacturing Experience at AAPEX’ will create new opportunities for our members to grow their business,” said Rich White, senior vice president, Auto Care Association.
To build upon the ongoing success of the Remanufacturing Section, AAPEX 2014 will offer registered AAPEX attendees engaged in the remanufacturing industry new education sessions during the REMANedu Conference, Nov. 3, from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m., at the Venetian Hotel.
New One-on-One meetings will give core suppliers and component suppliers to the remanufacturing industry the opportunity to schedule complimentary private meetings with key buyers from leading remanufacturers before the beginning of AAPEX 2014. Meetings will take place on Nov. 3, in the upper level, just outside of the Hall D extension.
In addition, the Auto Care Association and MERA will host a VIP invitation-only Remanufacturing Industry Reception at Aquaknox, Nov. 5, from 5 p.m.- 6:30 p.m. The reception will feature light hors d’oeuvres and sustainability-inspired cocktails.
