“People, Partners, and Profits” will be the theme at Heavy Duty Aftermarket Week (HDAW) 2018, organizers announced Thursday.
“Take away any of the three components of people, partners, and profits, and the industry crumbles. We want to be able to communicate to attendees why each one is so critical to the independent aftermarket, and how to best build on the knowledge to help drive success in industry,” says Troy Zurbuchen, president, Midwest Heavy Duty and Midwest Trailer Sales, and the distributor co-chair of HDAW’18.
“We are very focused on all of the key elements of success in our industry, and finding ways to continuously improve on them. This year, we are dedicated to the essential parts that make the heavy duty aftermarket successful,” adds Matt Forner, Grote’s director of Aftermarket Sales, and HDAW 2018 supplier co-chair.
According to event organizers, HDAW 2018 will offer industry participants four days of education programs, a product expo with the latest in HD parts-services and information, peer networking, and social activities. One-on-one meetings provide suppliers and distributors spend time discussing their businesses and opportunities for growing relationships to better serve end-user customers.
The event is scheduled for Jan. 22-25, 2018, at the Mirage in Las Vegas.
