AAPEX 2020 to Expand with Repair Shop HQ

Repair Shop HQ is expected to attract even more technicians to AAPEX as it will build on its training with a more expansive program. AAPEX 2020 will tap into the expertise of the industry’s top trainers and offer more on alternative fuel vehicle technologies, as well as live training on undercar and underhood topics.

For the first time in many years, AAPEX has the opportunity to expand and will add Repair Shop HQ to meet the needs of today’s service professionals. The expansion will take place on Level 1 of the Sands Expo and will include moving the Tool and Equipment section, the Mobile Heat Transfer/Heating/Air Conditioning section and Mobility Garage to Repair Shop HQ. AAPEX also is launching a new Tire and Tire Accessory section as part of the new space, as well as building out a four-bay shop on the show floor. AAPEX represents the more than $1 trillion global automotive aftermarket industry and will take place Tuesday, Nov. 3 through Thursday, Nov. 5, 2020, in Las Vegas.

The AAPEX 2020 expansion also includes a new robotics and warehouse equipment and logistics section.

“The ultimate goal of this expansion is to enable AAPEX and the entire supply chain to be more efficient from start to finish, while proactively addressing changes in the industry by presenting solutions,” said Bill Hanvey, president and CEO of the Auto Care Association.

“We will deliver solutions to the shop in order for them to be ahead of the curve. We will enable our distribution partners to make inventories more efficient, more viable, and more available to the customer. And we will champion opportunities for parts manufacturers to utilize data more efficiently to enhance their relationship with their customers,” added Paul McCarthy, president and COO of the Automotive Aftermarket Suppliers Association (AASA).

With more than 2,500 exhibiting companies, AAPEX is the showcase for the latest products, services and technologies that keep the world’s 1.3 billion vehicles on the road. More than 48,000 targeted buyers are expected to attend, including automotive service professionals, auto parts retailers, warehouse distributors, service chains, automotive dealers, fleet buyers and engine builders. Approximately 162,000 automotive aftermarket professionals from 126 countries are projected to be in Las Vegas during AAPEX and the SEMA Show.
