The 2017 Australian Auto Aftermarket Expo is sold out to Australian and international exhibitors keen to display their latest vehicle repair and servicing equipment, replacement parts, tools and accessories.
To be held at the Melbourne Exhibition Centre from April 6 to 8, the Australian Auto Aftermarket Expo is co-located with the Collision Repair Expo providing trade and industry visitors with five acres of state of the art automotive technology from 437 market leading companies.
Organised by the Australian Automotive Aftermarket Association (AAAA) with the help of a committee comprising senior industry executives, the theme for this Expo is ‘Build a Better Auto Business’.
AAAA executive director Stuart Charity said this theme was selected to reflect unprecedented change rolling rapidly across Australia’s vehicle repair and service sector.
“This expo is the largest of its type in the region and, at the Australian industry’s request, it is held every two years. This means products and services you see and experience at Expo are the latest available from around the world,” he said.
“By investing time in a visit to this Expo you and your team can learn how to ‘Build a Better Auto Business’ by updating your product knowledge, learning how to manage the challenges of our rapidly changing industry and by sharing ideas through a range of networking opportunities.
