Automotive Aftermarket Products Expo (AAPEX) is an international trade fair for the automotive industry, held for over 25 years. This year's edition took place from October 30th to November 1st in Las Vegas. It is estimated that around 162,000 automotive professionals from over 135 countries have appeared in Las Vegas during the AAPEX 2018.

During the event, products such as: car lighting systems, sound moderators, cooling systems, friction and brake circuits, engine and transmission parts, gear systems, hand tools for the automotive industry, etc. were presented. 8 exhibitors from Poland, along with the PAIH stand presented companies: Autodiagger, Castex, Fisher Automotive, M-Tech Poland, MTM Industries, Tasotti, and WAŚ. Several Polish companies participated in fairs without their own stands. The Polish offer was dominated by lighting, air fresheners, metal and rubber assembly elements, brake systems, workshop equipment and diagnostic equipment.

 

 

The contact point between contractors and the place of promotion of the Polish automotive sector was the Polish national stand organized by the Polish Investment and Trade Agency in connection with the implementation of the automotive and aircraft parts industry promotion program under Sub-measure 3.3.2 of the Intelligent Development Operational Program. On the second day of the fair, a press conference for journalists was organized. Representatives of the media got acquainted with the potential of the Polish automotive industry during the expert's speech - Grzegorz Gałczyński. The Honorary Consul of the Republic of Poland in Las Vegas, Mr John Petkus, also took part in the briefing.

 

 

We managed to establish contacts with representatives of Nevada economic organizations and wholesale agents supplying the automotive sector in other states of America. An important link between potential partners in the USA and Poland is the Foreign Trade Office PAIH in Los Angeles, whose manager - Karolina Zatorska - actively participated in the event.

 

 

Polish parts and car accessories enjoy a good reputation in the USA. Guests visiting the PAIH stand emphasized that they are high quality products - analogous to German or French but at a more attractive price. An opportunity for Polish companies on the US market is also a reversal from Chinese suppliers and the search for other attractive contacts in Europe.
