AAPEX 2019 will welcome the global automotive aftermarket industry to the Sands Expo in Las Vegas, Nov. 5 – 7.

AAPEX 2019 attendees are encouraged to book their hotel rooms early to ensure they receive the best deals at their choice hotels as approximately 162,000 automotive aftermarket professionals from 126 countries are projected to be in Las Vegas during AAPEX and the SEMA Show. AAPEX represents the more than $1 trillion global automotive aftermarket industry and will take place Tuesday, Nov. 5 through Thursday, Nov. 7, at the Sands Expo in Las Vegas.

AAPEX attendees can book rooms now using onPeak – the event’s official housing partner – to ensure the lowest rates at conveniently located hotels. 

With onPeak, attendees can select from more than 40 hotels and will receive the Lowest Rate Assurance, a guaranteed hotel confirmation number for smooth check-in, exclusive hotel perks, and personal service from real people. onPeak does not charge booking or service fees and is the only official housing company associated with AAPEX. While other hotel resellers may offer housing for AAPEX, they are not endorsed by or affiliated with AAPEX, and entering into financial agreements with such companies can have costly consequences.

Online attendee registration will be available in April. Attendees can be notified when registration is open by signing up signing upon the AAPEX website,

AAPEX 2019 will feature more than 2,500 exhibiting companies displaying the latest products, services and technologies that keep the world’s 1.2 billion vehicles on the road. More than 48,000 targeted buyers are expected to attend, including automotive service professionals, auto parts retailers, warehouse distributors (WDs), service chains, automotive dealers, fleet buyers and engine builders.
