The Australian Auto Aftermarket Expo is the nation’s most comprehensive exhibition of vehicle repair and servicing equipment, replacement parts, tools and accessories. Returning to Melbourne in 2017, industry experts will update business on the latest technologies available and the new trends in workshop management.

Hosted every two years by the Australian Automotive Aftermarket Association (AAAA), the Expo is directed by a committee of executives representing key brands exhibiting at the Expo. This is a trade only show run by the industry, for the industry.

More than 350 top Australian and international brands will be on display at Expo and the major corporate sponsor once again is the Tenneco brand Monroe. Exhibitors’ equipment and product demonstrations will be a highlight of the show, with some providing technical presentations and others running competitions.

The Australian Auto Aftermarket Expo will be co-located with the Collision Repair Expo. Entry is free and visitors will be able to check out a combined total of about 400 exhibits over nearly five acres of display space.

Monroe AAD Trade Night

Thanks to all that attended our AAD Trade Night on Thursday October 29th at our AAD Head office in Derrimut. In conjunction with Monroe AAD put on this night to present the winner of the Monroe ‘Win a Car’ Promotion and also took the opportunity for other suppliers to come on board to promote their product lines to customers. We had 20 suppliers attend offering great ‘on the night’ deals to customers and many door prizes to giveaway.

Monroe also organised Mark Winterbottom to attend and presented the major prize as well as participating in a q&a session with Paul Dumbrell, giving the crowd a really good insight into both of these guys exciting careers. Mark also spent time meeting and greeting customers and signing merchandise.

Thanks to all that made the effort to attend and we look forward to running similar events in the future.
