AAPEX 2019 is hosting Exhibitor Booth Camp in Detroit and Las Vegas to prepare exhibiting companies for success at this year’s event representing the more than $1 trillion global automotive aftermarket industry. AAPEX will take place Tuesday, Nov. 5 through Thursday, Nov. 7, at the Sands Expo in Las Vegas.
Exhibitor Booth Camp is offered at no cost and is for first-time and returning exhibitors.

Exhibitors also will learn proven strategies to increase booth traffic and how to enhance their ROI.
Presentations will cover show updates, pre- and post-show planning tips, promotional opportunities through sponsorships and how to save money on booth-related expenses and services. The AAPEX team and official AAPEX vendors will be available for one-on-one meetings with exhibitors. For the Booth Camp in Las Vegas, exhibitors will have the opportunity to tour the Sands Expo and participate in a networking reception.
