The International Heat Transfer Association (NARSA) has announced it will hold its annual convention at Harrah’s Las Vegas during Automotive Aftermarket Industry Week (AAIW).
“The NARSA theme, ‘Evolution of an Industry,’ continues to define the nature of the evolving business for automotive radiator repair and manufacturing specialists as they continue their transition to diversified thermal management product and service operations,” said Wayne Juchno, NARSA executive director.
The theme will be apparent throughout the NARSA Heat Transfer and Mobile AC Pavilion, a fixture at AAPEX since 2004. The Pavilion will feature 72 exhibitors from seven different countries with 14,000 square-feet of products and services for automotive and truck heating, cooling, and air conditioning service and replacement. It will be located on the upper level at the Sands Expo Center.
The NARSA convention will include a Board of Directors meeting on Sunday, Oct. 28. It also will feature an annual awards breakfast, the popular cooling system roundtable, one-on-one supplier meetings, committee workshops, business sessions, the Seekins Cup Golf Challenge on Monday, Oct. 29, and the Cooling System Customer Appreciation Reception on Tuesday, Oct. 30. In addition, NARSA members will take part in the educational opportunities presented throughout the week at AAPEX.
AAPEX represents the $395 billion global motor vehicle aftermarket and is jointly sponsored by the Automotive Aftermarket Suppliers Association (AASA) and the Automotive Aftermarket Industry Association (AAIA).
