Event organizers have announced a series of service professional-oriented changes to the annual AAPEX trade show. Starting in 2020, the Tool & Equipment section, the Mobile Heat Transfer/Heating/Air Conditioning section and Mobility Garage will move to a new offering on Level 1 of the Sands Expo called Repair Shop HQ. The space also will include a new Tire & Tire Accessory section and a four-bay shop that will be built on the show floor.
According to show planners, Repair Shop HQ is aimed at attracting more technicians to AAPEX, which will take place Nov. 3-5 in Las Vegas.
Additional changes in store for 2020 include a more expansive training program — including alternative fuel vehicle technology offerings and live training on a variety of undercar and underhood topics — as well as a new robotics and warehouse equipment and logistics section.
