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.
Titan International and the United Steelworkers union have petitioned the U.S. International Trade Commission and U.S. Department of Commerce seeking relief from OTR tire imports from China, India and Sri Lanka. What’s your opinion?
|I wholeheartedly support their action – something needs to be done.||
|I think it’s a bad idea that could inevitably tie the hands of domestic tire makers.||
|I oppose any duties against tire importers—they only raise costs for distributors and make it harder to obtain inventory.||
|I’m kind of on the fence and not sure what’s right, but need more information before deciding.||
|I don’t really care whether or not relief is granted.||
