Attendee registration is now open for AAPEX 2021, show organizers announced. The trade show is scheduled for Nov. 2 through Nov. 4, at the Sands Expo and Caesars Forum Conference Center in Las Vegas.
After a missed year, AAPEX 2021 will be an industry homecoming, reconnecting business partners and peers in the automotive aftermarket, while continuing to provide a venue for innovative products, emerging technology and technical and business management training, show organizers said.
This year’s event will include the new Repair Shop HQ on Level 1, an area dedicated to meeting the needs of service professionals. It will feature Joe’s Garage, a built out shop on the show floor with eight bays for training and live demos; a new Tire section; four new training theaters; and a Diagnostics/Telematics area. As part of this addition, the expanded Tool and Equipment section and the Mobile Heat Transfer/Heating/Air Conditioning section will relocate to Level 1.
On Level 2, attendees will be introduced to Automotive Aftermarket Central, a showcase of products for service and repair professionals, retailers and warehouse distributors.
Online attendee registration is $40 (U.S.) through Oct. 8. The fee for registering by fax or mail is $65 (U.S.) through Oct. 8. Beginning Oct. 9, online and onsite registration will be $90 (U.S.), and $115 (U.S.) for fax or mail registrations. With AAPEX registration, buyers also can visit the SEMA Show taking place the same week in Las Vegas.
In addition, housing is now open and attendees are encouraged to use onPeak, the official AAPEX housing partner, for lowest rates at hotels.
To help ensure as safe and productive an event as possible, AAPEX Event Management and AAPEX co-owners – the Auto Care Association and the Automotive Aftermarket Suppliers Association (AASA) – will take all appropriate and advisable precautions and measures as advised by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Guidelines for COVID-19, the organizations said. All attendees and exhibitors will be informed accordingly of any new or updated procedures, plans and details as they are determined, put in place or evolved moving toward the event in November.
