Network celebrates growth at AAPEX reception
The Automotive Distribution Network is growing. The group celebrated at a reception attended by more than 1,100 guests on the opening night of the Automotive Aftermarket Products Expo (AAPEX) on Nov. 4 in Las Vegas.
Co-hosted by nearly 200 of the Network’s manufacturer partners, the reception marked the group’s recent growth throughout the United States, Canada, Mexico and Puerto Rico.
Attendance was nearly double that of the 2010 reception, according to Mike Lambert, president of the Network. “The substantial uptick is indicative of the 25 new members the Network has signed over the last few years in the U.S., Canada, Mexico and Puerto Rico.”
Members from all the Network brands, including Parts Plus, Auto Pride and IAPA, were on hand along with the group’s headquarters staff and vendor partners to discuss industry trends and cultivate business relationships.
Operating under the brands of Parts Plus, Parts Plus Mexico, IAPA and Auto Pride, the Automotive Distribution Network says it is one of the largest, most diverse program groups in the industry.
