BETHESDA, Md. – June 6,
2018 – Women in Auto Care, a
global community of auto care professionals dedicated to advancing women in the
auto care industry, today announced the opening of its 2018 awards season. This
year’s awards season includes the community’s Women of the Year Awards and the
Automotive Communications Awards. Award recipients will be honored on Oct. 30,
2018 at the Automotive Aftermarket Products Expo (AAPEX) in Las Vegas.
of the Year Awards include Auto Care Woman of the
Year, Female Shop Owner of the Year and Auto Care Woman of Excellence and are
open to women who have made a significant impact in the auto care industry with
specific requirements for each individual award. The deadline
for entries is Aug. 1, 2018.
“The Women of the Year Awards honor three exceptional female
leaders who are an inspiration to the auto care community,” said Tammy Tecklenburg, president, Women in Auto Care. “If you know someone who has been a
driving force in the industry, honor them with a Women of the Year nomination.”
The Automotive Communications
Awards, spanning 39 unique categories
of business-to-consumer and business-to-business communications, recognize the creative
marketing efforts put forth by talented manufacturers, vehicle service
centers and industry associations. The deadline for entries is Aug.
“As consumers become more sophisticated through the use of
technology our omni-channel strategies must evolve as well," said Tecklenburg. “We’re
seeing a shift from online and offline sales to ‘total commerce’ that it is
flexible enough to allow the consumer to interact and buy products in a way
that compliments their lifestyle. It’s exciting to see how these macro
trends are influencing our industry and I look forward to applauding the best
in class marketing efforts with our awards.”
recipients for both Women of the Year and Automotive Communications will be
presented with their awards during a press conference on Tuesday, Oct. 30 in
the Venetian Casanova Rooms with the annual Women in Auto Care reception
immediately following. More details, including entry forms and award
requirements, can be found at www.womeninautocare.org.
