The New Product & Packaging Showcase at the Automotive Aftermarket Products Expo (AAPEX) – the place for manufacturers to display and for buyers to see the new products and innovative packaging concepts that will generate new business – will have an exciting new location at the 2004 show, set for Tuesday, Nov. 2, through Friday, Nov. 5, at the Sands Expo Center, Las Vegas, Nev. The 2004 showcase will be at the upper lobby entrance to the Sands from the Venetian Hotel. The showcase is open to AAPEX exhibitors to display new products or packaging introduced since AAPEX 2003 or to be introduced at the 200 show. “The New Product & Packaging Showcase is one of AAPEX’s largest and most comprehensive displays,” said William Glasgow of W.T.
