Exhibit space for the 2005 Automotive Aftermarket Products Expo (AAPEX), Nov. 1-4, at the Sands Expo Center in Las Vegas, is sold out for the second consecutive year, with nearly 2,000 exhibitors scheduled to participate in this year’s event.
AAPEX sold out even after expanding its exhibit area into the Venetian Ballroom earlier this year in anticipation of a record-setting number of exhibitors.
“AAPEX is an extremely business-oriented show that consistently brings quality buyers to booths. As a result, more and more companies are making AAPEX an integral part of their sales strategy,” said Bill Glasgow, Sr., AAPEX show manager.
A list of 2005 exhibitors is on the AAPEX website, AAPEXShow.com. Exhibitors can be searched alphabetically, by exhibitor/product category or by product. A “My Planner” feature on the site helps buyers create an efficient, personalized hour-by-hour itinerary for visiting exhibits and attending AAPEX networking events and seminars. There is also a virtual floor plan of the Sands Expo Center with a zoom in feature to show booth locations for exhibitors, company contact and product information, and links to exhibitors’ websites.
Companies that haven’t reserved space for AAPEX, but are interested in exhibiting should contact AAPEX Show Management at (708) 226-1300 to be placed on a waiting list in the event of cancellations.
AAPEX 2005 will be held Tuesday, Nov. 1, through Friday, Nov. 4, at the Sands Expo Center in Las Vegas.
AAPEX is the annual business-to-business trade show representing the $250 billion North American retail and service aftermarket, and features nearly 2,000 exhibitors. AAPEX is jointly sponsored by the Motor & Equipment Manufacturers Association (MEMA) and the Automotive Aftermarket Industry Association (AAIA).
