The Automotive Aftermarket Products Expo (AAPEX) will have its first-ever “Green” Zone at this year’s event to highlight environmentally-friendly products, tools and services. AAPEX will be held Tuesday, Oct. 30 through Thursday, Nov. 1, at the Sands Expo Center in Las Vegas, Nev. The AAPEX “Green” Zone will feature products that service providers and retailers can sell to consumers to help make their vehicles more efficient and environmentally friendly. It also will have tools and diagnostic equipment used to repair new green cars, as well as suppliers that recycle waste or remanufacture parts, or that have environmentally-friendly aftermarket parts. “The automotive aftermarket is one of the most environmentally friendly industries in the world,” said Bill Glasgow, Sr., AAPEX show manager. “The ‘Green’ Zone will provide an exceptional opportunity for suppliers to showcase their products to the aftermarket, and for retailers and service shops to advance their expertise in this field.” The AAPEX “Green” Zone will be located in the Venetian Hotel Ballroom that adjoins the Sands Expo Center. In addition, many exhibitors will promote their company’s green practices at the show, including environmentally-friendly manufacturing processes and training programs to encourage employees to be environmentally responsible. AAPEX is the annual business-to-business trade show representing the global automotive aftermarket and features more than 2,000 exhibitors. AAPEX is jointly sponsored by the Motor & Equipment Manufacturers Association (MEMA) and the Automotive Aftermarket Industry Association (AAIA).
