STAUNTON, Va. (Jan. 6, 2015) — Federated Auto Parts and its long-time member KOI Auto Parts have again partnered to host the 55th annual Cavalcade of Customs and Training Expo, taking place Jan. 9-11 at the Duke Energy Convention Center in Cincinnati.
The three-day event will feature training workshops for professional mechanical, body shop and management customers. These sessions will be taught by qualified instructors from Federated/KOI manufacturing partners such as Federal-Mogul Corp., Dorman Products, General Motor Corp.'s ACDelco division, Bosch Diagnostics and many others.
Participants will receive a three-day admission pass to the show, which includes access to all classes, lunches and an incentive and savings booklet at a low price.
“Last year over 550 of our customers participated in over 1,200 classes, and we expect those numbers will grow this year,” said Dave Wesselman, president of KOI. “We will also have 67 vendors in our exposition area providing detailed information about their parts and answers to all of our customers' tough questions.”
In addition, 225 area vocational students will be attending the show as guests of KOI, the company said.
