MOKENA, Ill. (Aug. 5, 2014) — The Automotive Aftermarket Products Expo (AAPEX) has added three new opportunities for companies in the remanufacturing industry to grow their business at AAPEX 2014.

The show is slated for Tuesday, Nov. 4, through Thursday, Nov. 6, at the Sands Expo Center in Las Vegas, with AAPEXedu sessions starting on Nov. 3.

The new “Remanufacturing Experience at AAPEX” will feature a REMANedu Conference and private one-on-one meetings on Monday, Nov. 3, and an invitation-only reception for Remanufacturing Section exhibitors and guests on Wednesday, Nov. 5, show organizers said. The event is co-hosted by the Motor & Equipment Remanufacturers Association (MERA)—the remanufacturing division of the Motor & Equipment Manufacturers Association (MEMA)—and the Auto Care Association (ACA).

“Remanufacturing is a growing sector of the automotive aftermarket, and the new ‘Remanufacturing Section at AAPEX’ offers new opportunities for aftermarket companies to grow their business,” said John Chalifoux, president and COO of MERA.

Rich White, ACA senior vice president, said the association “strongly supports new opportunities to promote the sustainability of engine rebuilding in the aftermarket, and the ‘Remanufacturing Experience at AAPEX’ will create new opportunities for our members to grow their business.”

To build on the “ongoing success of the Remanufacturing Section,” AAPEX said the show will offer registered attendees engaged in the remanufacturing industry new education sessions during the REMANedu Conference, from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. Nov. 3 at the Venetian Hotel.
