MOKENA, Ill. (March 7, 2014)—The deadline to complete the online booth space application for companies wanting to exhibit at the 2014 Automotive Aftermarket Products Expo (AAPEX) in Las Vegas is March 14.
Show promoters said the online booth space application is on the AAPEX website, and the space drawing is in May. AAPEX—jointly sponsored by the Automotive Aftermarket Industry Association (AAIA) and the Automotive Aftermarket Suppliers Association (AASA)—is set for Nov. 4-6, at the Sands Expo Center in Las Vegas.
Applications will continue to be accepted after the space drawing, however, space will then be subject to availability and assigned on a first-come, first-served basis, the associations said.
The 2014 AAPEX is expected to feature more than 2,400 exhibitors, 5,000 booths and 39,000 targeted buyers. Approximately 130,000 automotive aftermarket professionals from nearly 125 countries are projected to be in Las Vegas during AAPEX.
