AAIA Town Hall to Feature Three Top Presenters

Presentation by three industry research leaders will headline the Town Hall at AAPEX.
Hosted by the Automotive Aftermarket Industry Association (AAIA), the Town Hall, sponsored by Polk, will be held Wednesday, Nov. 2 at 7 a.m. in the Venetian Ballroom in the Venetian Hotel.
The Town Hall program will switch from the traditional panel discussion to three separate presentations by Mario Gabelli, Tim Rogers and David Portalatin, who will present the latest financial, industry and consumer trends, insight and analysis at this year’s AAIA Town Hall at AAPEX in Las Vegas. Mario Gabelli is chairman and CEO, Gamco Investors, Inc. Tim Rogers is president of researcher Polk. David Portalatin is executive director of industry analysis, The NPD Group
“Three well-known and respected experts will provide valuable takeaways for the Town Hall’s more than 1,000 attendees,” said Kathleen Schmatz, AAIA president and CEO. “We decided to transition from the industry channel panel program model to all-new back-to-back information-filled presentations.”
Tickets for the 2011 AAIA Town Hall include a full buffet breakfast. Individual tickets are $100 for AAIA members and $115 for non-members, and a table of 10 is $850 for AAIA members and $1,000 for non-members. For ticket information, visit and click on “Meetings/Events.”
