AAPEX will expand into the Caesars Forum Conference Center, which will house some of the many International Pavilions at this year’s event.
The centre is just a short walk from the Sands Expo and easily accessible by crossing a new short footbridge.
Technical and Business Management Training
AAPEX is enlisting the help of shop owners and technicians to identify the best of the best for technical and business management training in Repair Shop HQ.
Panellists will review and score training submissions, with their final selection to be announced in May.
