2021_AWDA_Email HeaderBETHESDA, Md. – June 15, 2021 – The Aftermarket Warehouse Distributors Association (AWDA), a community of the Auto Care Association, today announced registration is open for its 74th Annual AWDA Conference. The event will be held Oct. 31 – Nov. 3, 2021 at The Venetian Resort and Casino in Las Vegas, Nev. The AWDA Conference is an annual business event that brings together the premier companies of the industry for high-level, private, one-on-one business meetings.

The AWDA conference, sponsored this year by Dorman Products, will signify the dynamic in-person return of the industry at the start of Automotive Aftermarket Industry Week (AAIW).

For 2021, the AWDA conference will be implementing these new approaches:

  • Shifting to Align with AAPEX: The AWDA Conference will shift from its typical days and now offer one-on-one meetings all day on Monday, Nov. 1, followed by the afternoons of Tuesday, Nov. 2 and Wednesday, Nov. 3.
  • Access to One-on-One Meeting Suites: The designated one-on-one meeting suites in the Venetian Guest Tower will now be accessible by all guestroom elevator banks to allow for more efficient access.

“AWDA is extremely excited at the opportunity to host our long standing, premier event in person,” said Larry Northup, executive director, AWDA. “While we were still able to successfully stay connected this past year, that does not rival the experience and the importance of face-to-face engagements. The industry is ready to reunite and forge on.”

All companies must register by Aug. 20, 2021 to participate in the AWDA One-on-One meetings.
