ReMaTecUSA, the largest remanufacturing trade show in North America, kicked off Saturday at the Rio Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas.
The show featured a 40,000-plus squre feet show floor with more than 100 exhibitors.
BigR/ReMaTecUSA, the successor to APRA’s former Big R show, was deemed a success by exhibitors and visitors alike. Organizers says the promise that this new remanufacturing trade show holds for the future was underlined by 92 exhibitors, and 1,379 registrations. BigR/ReMaTecUSA welcomed 35 first time exhibitors and was visited by professionals from 33 countries.
“Exhibitors doubled compared to last years’ BigR Show and 1,379 visitor registrations, an increase of 53 percent, exceeds all expectations,” says Joe Kripli president and former chairman of Automotive Parts Remanufacturing Association. “I am delighted with the positive feedback from attendees. This first edition of BigR/ReMaTecUSA has been a great success. All feedback during and after the show has been overwhelmingly positive and the atmosphere on the floor was simply buzzing. I am looking forward to continue the cooperation with Amsterdam RAI – ReMaTec at next years’ show.”
