First HDAW Seen As Hub for Suppliers and Distributors

(Akron/Tire Review) The inaugural Heavy Duty Aftermarket Week (HDAW), set for Jan. 23-27, at The Mirage in Las Vegas, will include 12 aftermarket associations and marketing groups, making it the industry’s premier and central meeting place for suppliers and distributors.

The following organizations are participating in HDAW: Heavy Duty Distribution Association, Heavy Duty Manufacturers Association, Council of Fleet Specialists, Heavy Duty America, Heavy Duty Remanufacturers Group, Heavy Duty Representatives Association, National Wheel & Rim Association, Overseas Automotive Council, Power Heavy Duty, Service Specialists Association, TruckPride and VIPAR Heavy Duty.
“HDAW is an industry initiative – led by distributors and suppliers – to consolidate industry meetings so that we can all recognize the time, resources and cost benefits of fewer, higher value meetings,” said Pete Joy, president of Haldex NA Sales Division, and chairman of the Heavy Duty Aftermarket Manufacturers Council. “HDAW will address the challenges facing everyone in our industry.”

Organizers said the executive conference will feature a “comprehensive distributor education program” and an aftermarket-focused trade show with more than 200 supplier exhibitors.
Individual association and company functions will take place throughout HDAW, including HDMA’s “HD Dialogue ’06” – a business conference focusing on the technological, competitive and regulatory forces the group feels will shape the future of the heavy duty truck industry. 
“HDAW is unique in that it has been a true collaboration where each participating organization has made a commitment in resources and leadership to ensure the success of HDAW,” Joy said.
