There’s a saying that you live and die by the numbers, but I’m
going to brag about some numbers anyway. Now that the dust has settled on
AAPEX, our trade show and mega event in Las Vegas, the final numbers reinforce
the extremely positive feedback we have heard from many of our member companies
– both exhibitors and buyers.
A total of 2,292 exhibitors, 230
more than last year filled both floors of the Sands Expo Center with 4,984
booths, 540 more than last year.
Nearly 2,000 one-on-one meetings
between suppliers and WDs were hosted by the Automotive Warehouse Distributors
The AAIA Town Hall was sold out
with 1,200 attendees and each of the 30 education sessions was packed.
There, I said it.
