AAPEX will offer two free General Sessions filled with the latest trends, market research and insights to keep attendees ahead of the curve and prepared for the future. The first session, “Trends Impacting the North American Aftermarket,” will be held Tuesday, Oct. 31, while “Aftermarket Outlook 2024,” will take place Wednesday, Nov. 1.
Todd Campau, Aftermarket Practice Lead at S&P Global Mobility, will present the Tuesday session and share key industry trends and new insight affecting the global aftermarket. From the ever-changing new vehicle market, the path to electrification and the aging of the fleet, the automotive aftermarket continues to evolve. Campau will cover how these trends in the vehicle fleet are impacting aftermarket repair opportunities faster than ever before.
At this year’s aftermarket outlook session on Wednesday, Circana’s Executive Director and Industry Analyst, Nathan Shipley, will cover the trends observed both in general retail and the aftermarket over the last two years and why understanding what drove sales performance during that time is critical for predicting what the near-term future might look like for the aftermarket industry. The presentation will also provide perspective on how macro trends – both industry specific and more general in nature – might play into future results.
Registration is not required for the popular General Sessions, however, attendees should arrive early to ensure a seat. Both sessions will be held from 11 a.m. to noon on their respective days in The Venetian, Titian Ballroom 2204.
AAPEX will take place Tuesday, Oct. 31 through Thursday, Nov. 2, at The Venetian Expo in Las Vegas.
