The Numbers Tell the Story

There’s a saying that you live and die by the numbers, but I’m going to brag about some numbers anyway. Now that the dust has settled on AAPEX, our trade show and mega event in Las Vegas, the final numbers reinforce the extremely positive feedback we have heard from many of our member companies – both exhibitors and buyers.

A total of 2,292 exhibitors, 230 more than last year filled both floors of the Sands Expo Center with 4,984 booths, 540 more than last year.

Nearly 2,000 one-on-one meetings between suppliers and WDs were hosted by the Automotive Warehouse Distributors Association.

The AAIA Town Hall was sold out with 1,200 attendees and each of the 30 education sessions was packed.

There, I said it.
