events committee

The Events Committee reviews the content and presentation of Auto Care Association events, such as the Chairmen's Reception, the annual Town Hall breakfast and AAPEX. The Events Committee also advises show management on long range strategies for future AAPEX shows, including identifying areas for potential growth for the show; directing the promotional campaign; and helping show management meet the growing needs for both AAPEX buyers and exhibitors.
