BETHESDA, Md. – August 10, 2023 – The Auto Care Association today announced the opening of registration for the International Matchmaking Program at AAPEX 2023. The annual program is organized in collaboration with the United States Commercial Service. The International Matchmaking Program is made possible through the Market Development Cooperator Program (MDCP) award the association received from the U.S. Department of Commerce to promote trade with Latin America.

This year’s International Matchmaking Program will be held at the Venetian Expo in Las Vegas, Nev., on Tuesday, Oct. 31 and Wednesday, Nov. 1, 2023. The Auto Care Association will match participants’ business objectives and schedule one-on-one meetings with pre-screened international buyers who are interested in their products or services.

Registered participants will receive a “Participant Profile Guide” upon closing registration to identify prospective buyers. The Auto Care Association will send meeting agendas the week prior to the show. There is no cost to participate in the International Matchmaking Program.

“We are very appreciative of your support in arranging the meetings for us during AAPEX,” said Alma Rosa Aguilar from BKSCorp, S.A. DE C.V., a buyer from Mexico. “We returned to Guadalajara very satisfied with your professional coordination. Please continue your efforts to connect business partners in order to contribute to the development of the industry and economy in our countries.”

The deadline to register for the International Matchmaking Program is Monday, Sept. 18, 2023.
