Uni-Select Canada Inc. and its Bumper to Bumper stores will host an “all-digital personal experience” early next year, designed to shape the future of the Canadian automotive aftermarket.
The auto parts distribution company has created AUTOXPO, a reimagined trade show concept with an emphasis on health and safety. It will feature a new way of connecting exhibitors, customers, thought leaders, and media across the industry.
For more than 50 years, Uni-Select has been at the forefront of the automotive aftermarket evolution. The AUTOXPO event is destined to become the market preferred platform to safely share ideas, engage with brands, join stores and automotive service providers while introducing products and technology innovation that will shape the future.
“AUTOXPO represents a great opportunity for Uni-Select Canada and Bumper to Bumper community to share, engage and learn. And the fact that it is a digital trade event – the first of its kind in our industry – makes us very proud,” said Jason Best, senior vice president of sales, marketing and merchandising.
