#aftermarket – Lordco Auto Parts, which operates more than 100 stores in the province of British Columbia, marked its 25th annual trade show with strong attendance and activity.
The event’s “British Invasion” theme highlighted the organizations cruise incentive program that sets sail this September.
The show, held over two days, brings in Lordco and NFL Distributors customers from British Columbia and beyond to see connect with more than 350 Lordco suppliers in what is generally regarded as the largest independent aftermarket trade show in Canada.
Aside from a very busy main show floor at the Pacific National Exhibition Colliseum, notable at this year’s event was the expanded and busy Tool and Equipment section in the Agrodome building. It was the first time that all tool and equipment suppliers were housed under the same roof.
While there were, according to company CEO Doug Coates, some skeptics at being moved from the main building, the busy booths and focused buyers seem to put reservations to rest, he said.
