GRAPEVINE, Texas — Automotive Parts Services Group (The Group) will hold a virtual national meeting and trade show on Aug. 21 for Pronto Smart Choice and Federated Car Care Centers operators.
The virtual meeting and show will run from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Central Daylight Time with over 130 Group vendor partners expected to take part.
"One of the best things about hosting a virtual national meeting is that many people who would not normally be able to participate can now attend our meeting virtually," Group CEO Larry Pavey said.
"We believe it is very important to include Federated Car Care and Pronto Smart Choice customers so they have the opportunity to meet virtually with our supplier partners. We also have some prizes and fun things planned for those customers that register and take part."
Pronto and Federated banner shop attendees will be able to hear about new products and upgrades, view product and program presentations designed to help them get the most out of their memberships, the distribution partnership said, and have the chance to network and learn in a fun environment.
Attendees can collect points for participating in the virtual sessions and redeem those points for prizes that will be shipped directly to them. All participants will be entered for a chance to win one of two grand prizes, the chance to attend the April 2021 National Pronto and Federated Supplier Expo in Las Vegas.
Pronto Smart Choice and Federated Car Care banner shops can register for the vendor expo by visiting apsg2020.
The Group is a joint venture of Federated Auto Parts and National Pronto Association program groups on behalf of their respective members. It's considered one of the largest automotive parts supply networks in North America.
