AAPEX (Automotive Aftermarket Products Expo)


The Automotive Aftermarket Industry Association (AAIA) is a non-profit trade association for the aftermarket automotive industry. Each year, the AAIA holds the Automotive Aftermarket Products EXPO (AAPEX) in November at the Sands Expo and Convention Center in Las Vegas, Nevada.

AAPEX is the industry’s largest annual trade show and is a showcase of do-it-yourself aftermarket products and the “professionally installed” aftermarket service industry. Over 100,000 people attend AAPEX and view products, tools and components from over 2,400 exhibitors and companies.

AAPEX also serves as an industry leader in education and showcases new research and new trends. AAPEXedu is the education division of AAPEX. Those who volunteer at the event work with other industry professionals to create an educational forum that addresses key issues impacting the aftermarket industry, serving as a full educational and professional resource for the expo attendees.

Metro Exhibits has been a proud supplier of a wide range of services for exhibitors and companies who participate in AAPEX.
