Renowned automotive companies and market leaders from the aftermarket landscape have been looking forward to this event with a unanimous aim to successfully push the boundaries and enable businesses to look beyond the picture. Here’s what you need to know about AAPEX 2024:

AAPEX Through the Years - An Overview of the Event History

The automotive aftermarket products expo is counted among the premiere exhibitions in which manufacturers and marketers participate to interact and talk about the industry trends and other advancements paving the way for a sustainable growth architecture.

The event is organized annually under the leadership of ACA (Auto Care Association), AASA (Automotive Aftermarket Suppliers Association), and MEMA (Motor & Equipment Manufacturers) to provide a platform where manufacturers and suppliers can show an extensive selection of products such as engine parts, friction and brake biscuits, gear systems, and more.

The first AAPEX event took place in 2019 in which 2545 exhibitors got the opportunity to show their products before 1,62,829 visitors from around the world. However, the year after its commencement, it was organized as a digital event due to the global pandemic.

2021 proved to be the year of resurrection for the AAPEX event when it came back to bring together the global aftermarket industry and help them set their foot in the market again. AAPEX 2022 was also a remarkable touchpoint for many businesses from the automotive domain where visitors discovered products exhibited by the industry’s best 300 manufacturers, warehouse distributors, and technicians.

Now let’s take a look at last year’s data showcasing the global impact of the event along with a brief discussion over the latest technology trends. There were a total of 1,36,884 attendees among whom 2500+ manufacturers and supplier firms exhibited their latest product selection to more than 64,000 buyers.

1163 product categories were explored over a period of three days along with 16 new EV sessions. AAPEX 2023 substantially focused on hands-on technical training which is going to be another major attraction of the event this year as well.

Insightful Sessions on Industry Challenges & Solutions

AAPEX events have empowered manufacturers and suppliers across the industry with an elucidated outlook that’s impervious to recurring market challenges businesses often face. Therefore, OEMs’ expectations are at an all-time high with Automotive Aftermarket Products Expo 2024.

It is the only event among a series of numerous Meets & Greets where visitors not only interact with each other but also engage in live demonstrations and hands-on training. In hindsight, business education led by experts and one-on-one connections help OEMs establish a robust presence in the aftermarket community.

The event is designed to bring every key player under one roof and begin a headway for manufacturers and visionaries to share future-centric insights.

Above other benefits, the automotive aftermarket expo is going to be the best chance for OEMs to not only meet target buyers but also learn about new product and service developments. We can see from previous years’ numbers that thousands of equipment manufacturers exhibit parts and accessories in more than a hundred categories.

OEMs can learn about these latest automotive parts and overcome the competitive gap, gaining a powerful edge in their respective market. AAPEX also offers in-person training for worldwide visitors to witness the need for adaptability and become familiar with new technology standards.

Networks that Benefit in the Long Run

Automotive Aftermarket Products Expo 2024 has planted many opportunities for OEMs to discover and leverage throughout their 3-day span at the event. However, a growing network comes forward as the biggest benefit along with in-person training and sessions with experts on technical advances in aftermarket. 

As one of the most prestigious automotive industry events in the world, it will provide a worthy platform for automotive manufacturers to meet vendors from the United States and around the world. It will also be a great chance to explore aftermarket solutions that drive industrial sustainability.
