Hosted by the Australian Automotive Aftermarket
Association (AAAA), the Expo will provide
workshop owners, managers, technicians and

experience over three action-packed days.
AAAA Executive Director Stuart Charity said this
will be the largest exhibition of automotive
aftermarket products and services ever held in
Australia, and will also provide a great learning
and information sharing opportunity for the
“One reason why the Expo is held every two years
is to ensure that the products and services
presented reflect new ground-breaking
technologies – not just different packaging,” Mr
“This biennial timing also ensures that the
Australian Auto Aftermarket Awards program
entries represent fresh ideas and the latest
technical developments. The Awards program has
been revised and will feature expanded categories
and refined entry criteria providing greater
opportunities for small companies to nominate.
“We encourage all AAAA members to have a close
look at the new Awards entry information on our
website (www.aftermarketawards.com.au) and
prepare their entry for submission by January 31,
2015,” Mr Charity said.
Expanded seminar program
The information sharing aspect of the event has
been expanded greatly in recent years.
“The seminar program for 2015 is near complete
and will soon be announced,” Mr Charity said.
“It will be the most comprehensive seminar series
we have offered with an extensive range of topics
covering technical information, fault diagnostics
and the management of small businesses. We are
also adding timely new subjects such as
telematics, managing employees and online
marketing. Entry to the Expo and attendance at
these sessions is free of charge to all trade
“In addition to the Seminar Program we organise
for visitors, the Expo is now a destination for many
supporting associations representing a wide range
of sectors of the automotive industry.
“About 20 supporting organisations from across
Australia, New Zealand and the USA will
participate in the 2015 Expo. Most are hosting
their own co-located events, including member
presentations and conferences.
“The Auto Aftermarket Expo is the only venue that
provides this extraordinarily diverse information
sharing and networking opportunity for Australian
businesses. This is a key reason why we continue
to run the Expo as a trade only event,” Mr Charity
