Several member organizations of the Automotive Warehouse Distributors Association (AWDA) have signed on as contributing sponsors of the 2013 AAIA Town Hall breakfast at AAPEX in Las Vegas.
“Without the generous support of our primary sponsor, Polk, and the AWDA contributing sponsors, our association could not deliver the high quality production Town Hall is known for each year,” said Kathleen Schmatz, AAIA president and CEO. “We are making a number of visual enhancements to this year’s program and even have a couple of surprises for attendees.”
The Automotive Warehouse Distributors Association (AWDA) member organizations who are Town Hall contributing sponsors are:
Automotive Distribution Network
Federated Auto Parts
National Pronto Association
Kicking off Town Hall with be Polk’s “Five Trends in Five Minutes” by Mark Seng, global aftermarket practice leader. This rapid-fire presentation of fact-based challenges and opportunities facing the industry has become a popular element of the Town Hall program.
The feature presentation by Janet Schijns, vice president of medium business and channels for Verizon Enterprise Solutions, will preview future technology trends of specific relevance to the entire distribution channel.
“Janet will deliver a pragmatic, informative, entertaining, eye-opening view and encouraging predictions about how the independent auto care industry will be communicating and doing business in the very near future,” said Schmatz.
