More than 4,000 will attend for face-to-face meetings with supplier channel partners for the first time since 2018 and 2015

Las Vegas—The Aftermarket Auto Parts Alliance, Inc. and more than 4,000 automotive professionals from Auto Value and Bumper to Bumper will attend AAPEX 2022 for face-to-face meetings with supplier channel partners to discuss products, service techniques and the future of the industry. 

AAPEX represents the more than $1.6 trillion global automotive aftermarket and will take place Tuesday, Nov. 1 through Thursday, Nov. 3, at The Venetian Expo and Caesars Forum Conference Center in Las Vegas.

Automotive professionals, including technicians, shop owners, store personnel and warehouse distributors, will spend Nov. 2 and Nov. 3, on the AAPEX show floor as part of the Alliance’s Aftermarket Jackpot Convention — High Stakes Edition — being held in Las Vegas, Nov. 1 through Nov. 4, at The Mirage Hotel and Casino.

This year will mark the Alliance’s third return to AAPEX, having hosted its Jackpot Conventions in Las Vegas in 2018 and 2015.

“Auto Value and Bumper to Bumper is excited to be back in Las Vegas this AAPEX,” said JC Washbish, vice president sales and marketing, Aftermarket Auto Parts Alliance. “This is a unique opportunity for us to bring our technician and shop owner customers directly to our valued channel partners. The entire distribution channel is able to come together to talk parts, emerging technologies, performance and customer service all at the largest trade show for our industry.

“Thank you to the AAPEX show partners, especially the Automotive Aftermarket Suppliers Association and the Auto Care Association for being such gracious hosts and for welcoming us back to their show with open arms.”

The group officially will kick off their visit to AAPEX on Wednesday morning with a festive march from The Mirage Hotel and Casino to The Venetian Expo, crossing Las Vegas Boulevard along the way.

“AAPEX has evolved to meet the needs of service and repair professionals through the introduction of Joe’s Garage and more exclusive, hands-on training than any other event,” said Bill Hanvey, president and CEO, Auto Care Association. “We are so proud to host the Alliance with their Auto Value and Bumper to Bumper members to connect them with these essential resources while enabling exhibitors to forge stronger connections with the experts who install the parts.”

“We are thrilled to have the Alliance return to AAPEX again this year, and we thank the entire Alliance team and membership for their support. The excitement and experience that attendees from Auto Value and Bumper to Bumper bring to the show add a unique benefit for AAPEX exhibitors,” commented Paul McCarthy, president and CEO of Automotive Aftermarket Suppliers Association (AASA).

“AAPEX exhibitors will provide training in their booths specifically for these attendees, from technicians and shop owners to warehouse distributors, who will also benefit from the on-site and hands-on experience available in Repair Shop HQ targeted specifically to shops and service professionals. This partnership brings the best of AAPEX to those who service our nation’s vehicles.”
