As VIPAR Heavy Duty recognizes its 30th year, the organization is pleased to host the new IMPACT™ Conference. The new event brand reflects the general tenet the conference serves – to act as a catalyst for bringing together distributors, suppliers, and business associates to positively impact their mutual business and to support the continued success of the network and the heavy duty aftermarket.
“VIPAR Heavy Duty understands that together we each impact the employees within our companies, the customers we serve, our local communities and the aftermarket industry,” said Jeff Paul, vice president of marketing, VIPAR Heavy Duty. “IMPACT encompasses what we each do every day as well as the principle benefits our conference serves to support for attendees.”
The VIPAR Heavy Duty IMPACT Conference will take place October 20-25, 2019 at the JW Marriott San Antonio Hill Country in San Antonio, Texas.
The new IMPACT Conference will feature updates on the VIPAR Heavy Duty organization and business growth insights from the G3 management team, a keynote address, an annual stockholder meeting, general session, distributor education session, tradeshow, networking events and approximately 1,500 one-to-one stockholder/supplier partner meetings.
To support the impact of the next generation of industry leadership, there will be a young leaders reception featuring a mentoring panel, organized with GenNext, as well as a forum and lunch for young professionals.
The annual IMPACT Memorial Golf Tournament memorializes industry friends and colleagues and the impact of their contributions to the VIPAR Heavy Duty network and the aftermarket. The tournament provides an enjoyable networking event as well as a mechanism to raise funds to support those in need within the heavy duty aftermarket and through the Wyakin Foundation.
