LAS VEGAS (July 28, 2014) — The Automotive Aftermarket Products Expo (AAPEX) is instituting an all-new voting process for attendees at this year’s trade show to determine winning entries in its 2014 New Product Showcase.

AAPEX runs Tuesday, Nov. 4 through Thursday, Nov. 6 at the Sands Expo Center in Las Vegas, with AAPEXedu sessions starting on Monday, Nov. 3.

Show promoters said the New Product Showcase, located in Hall D+, is a launch pad for products making their debut at this year’s AAPEX event, and attendees will have the opportunity to vote for their favorite products in eight different categories by using a scanner available in the New Product Showcase area.

Voting will take place on the first day of AAPEX, Nov. 4. After voting and returning the scanners, attendees will then receive a list of the products they scanned in order to visit the exhibitors’ booths on the show floor, according to AAPEX. The products with the most scans in each of the eight categories will be announced as winners at a press conference to be held in the Media Center, Room 304, on Wednesday, Nov. 5.

To enter a product in the New Product Showcase, AAPEX exhibitors should go to exhibitor login on the AAPEX website, enter their login information and click on the New Product Showcase icon on the dashboard. Products featured in the showcase must have been introduced since AAPEX 2013. For more information, contact Chris Kalousek via email at chris.kalousek@aapexshow.com or call 708-226-1300 ext. 14.

Promoters said AAPEX 2014 is expected to feature more than 2,400 exhibitors, 5,000 booths, nearly 40 AAPEXedu sessions and 39,000 targeted buyers. More than 130,000 automotive aftermarket professionals from nearly 125 countries are projected to be in Las Vegas during AAPEX, which runs concurrently with the Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) Show in Las Vegas.
