As part of this addition, the expanded tool and equipment section and the mobile heat transfer/ heating/air conditioning section will relocate to Level 1. This area also will feature four training theaters, a new tire section and a section for diagnostics/telematics, according to AAPEX..

To help ensure a safe and productive event, AAPEX Event Management and AAPEX co-owners – the Auto Care Association and the Automotive Aftermarket Suppliers Association (AASA) – will take all appropriate and advisable precautions and measures as advised by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Guidelines for COVID-19, AAPEX says. All attendees and exhibitors will be informed accordingly of any new or updated procedures, plans and details as they are determined, put in place or evolved moving toward the event in November.
