Heavy Duty Aftermarket Week (HDAW) 2017 is three months away but already setting event records, as organizers announced Wednesday a record-breaking amount of exhibit space has been sold for upcoming the January conference.
HDAW organizers say all available space in the main exhibit hall and adjoining Tool & Equipment room was completely sold within weeks of initial space release. Additionally, next year’s HDAW exposition also will introduce thirteen new exhibitors, many of whom will help distributors supply and service new technologies on post-2010 vehicles.
“The level of interest of the supplier community in all aspects of HDAW’17 shows how important the independent aftermarket is to the commercial vehicle industry,” says Carl Mesker, vice president Aftermarket-Americas for SAF-Holland and co-chairman of HDAW’17. “The seven-week sell-out of all available HDAW exhibit space during current challenging market conditions continues to point to the growth potential for the independent heavy-duty distributor.”
And HDAW organizers say interest is up for other aspects of the event as well, as a record 139 companies have signed up for one-on-one meetings during the 2017 event.
According to HDAW survey results, suppliers plan to use the HDAW Product Expo and Tool & Equipment Room to introduce their latest products, technology and programs, to promote merchandising and new this year, HDAW specific show-specials.
