Heavy Duty Aftermarket Week (HDAW) invites distributors to register now for one-one-one meetings with suppliers at HDAW'24

"Participating in the One-on-One Business Meetings at HDAW'24 is a tremendous opportunity for suppliers to connect directly with distributors," says Nicole Oreskovic, vice president of sales and marketing at Bendix Commercial Vehicle Systems and HDAW'24 supplier co-chair. "These meetings help propel valuable dialogue on the latest product innovations and collaborative strategies, driving our industry forward."

Suppliers should register by Friday, Nov. 21. Last year, HDAW says, supplier meeting rooms sold out. Suppliers are urged to register as soon as possible. Distributors have until Friday, Nov. 28. 

"The One-on-One Business meetings empower distributors to uncover invaluable industry insights, tailor solutions that meet our clients' unique needs and cultivate partnerships that drive substantial growth in our individual businesses," says Michael Callison Jr., president and CEO of Midwest Wheel Companies and HDAW'24 distributor co-chair. 

The one-on-one, 35-minute, pre-scheduled meetings will take place: 

  • 9:30 a.m.-12:45 p.m., Tuesday, Jan. 23. 
  • 2-5 p.m., Wednesday, Jan. 24. 
  • 7 a.m.-12:55 p.m., Thursday, Jan. 25.

There will also be self-scheduled meetings available from 1:45 p.m.-4:20 p.m., Thursday, Jan. 25. 

Participation is limited to distributor companies and exhibiting suppliers who are members of sponsoring affiliated organizations and are officially registered for HDAW'24. There is no cost for distributors to participate in these meetings. 

HDAW is using MeetMax software to schedule the meetings. Distributors can select and rank preferred suppliers according to their interest level. Schedules will be based on mutual selections and will be provided ahead of the event.
