Hang On Tight: Aftermarket’s Future Speeding Up


The automotive industry’s future will be fast, fun and scary, according to Dr. David Cole, president of the Center for Automotive Research. Cole will discuss the industry’s future at the Global Automotive Aftermarket Symposium (GAAS) on Thursday, May 8, at the Hyatt Regency, Dearborn, Mich.
According to Cole, change will continue to accelerate in all facets of the global automotive industry prompted by intensifying competition, market forces, government regulations, new technology and other factors. He will address some of the important macro issues driving the industry with emphasis on the new business model, high performance product development and market forces.
GAAS begins at 8 a.m. on Thursday and concludes at noon on Friday, May 9. More information and registration forms are at www.globalsymposium.org. Autoserviceworld.com, through its affiliation with Jobber News Magazine, is a sponsor of the event.
GAAS is the automotive aftermarket’s only educational event where all the net proceeds are used to fund scholarships for undergraduate and vocational technical students preparing for industry careers. Details about the GAAS scholarship program are available at www.automotivescholarships.com.
The GAAS program is a joint professional education effort of the Alliance of State Automotive Aftermarket Associations (ASAAA), Automotive Industries Association (AIA) of Canada, Automotive Aftermarket Industry Association (AAIA), Automotive Parts Rebuilders Association (APRA), Automotive Warehouse Distributors Association (AWDA), Motor & Equipment Manufacturers Association (MEMA), Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA), Tire Association of North America (TANA) and University of the Aftermarket.
