Demonstrations will take place in Joe’s Garage, a real-world shop with eight bays, lifts, vehicles and a source-capture vehicle extraction system during the biggest aftermarket event of the year in Las Vegas.

AAPEX will run at the Sands Expo and Caesars Forum Conference Center from Nov. 2-4.

The shop will be offer demos of advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) calibration and service, as well as many of the newest undercar and underhood solutions.

For front counter staff, product demonstrations will include shop management software, customer relationship management programs, digital inspection software, website design and integrated and text-to-pay solutions.

Additionally, the expanded Tool and Equipment section and the Mobile Heat Transfer/Heating/Air Conditioning section will move up to the first level. It will feature four training theaters, a new tire section and an area for diagnostics/telematics.
