Automotive Warehouse Distributors Association (AWDA) Conference

AAPEX

Virtual Event Nov. 16 - 19, 2020 Nov. 3-5, 2020 | Virtual Experience 

For 73 years, AWDA’s Annual Conference has delivered on the promise of valuable interaction through its efficient and highly effective one-on-one meetings. That tradition is continued and for 2020. AWDA is excited to offer its FIRST Virtual AWDA Event Nov. 16-19, 2020.

AAPEX 2020, scheduled for Nov. 3-5, 2020 at the Sands Expo and Caesars Forum Conference Center in Las Vegas, will not be held as an in-person tradeshow event this year due to the current state of the COVID-19 pandemic and related governmental prohibitions and restrictions on gatherings, businesses, and travel. Instead, AAPEX will provide a virtual/digital experience with many of the show’s elements presented digitally. Given the State of Nevada’s recently announced long-term mitigation strategy for the COVID-19 pandemic, which has indefinitely prohibited events with more than 50 participants, and the severe limitations on international and domestic travel imposed in connection with the pandemic, unfortunately, the traditional in-person event cannot proceed.
