Heavy Duty Aftermarket Week (HDAW) 2019 — ATRO Training
Las Vegas, Feb, 13, 2019 — Organizers of Heavy Duty Aftermarket Week (HDAW) 2019 said more than 1,800 suppliers and 680 distributor executives attended the 14th edition of the heavy-duty independent aftermarket conference in a record-breaking turnout.
"In one week, we learned to embrace technology and the benefits of using it in our businesses, finding and retaining the right people for our organizations and understanding what the independent distributor will need to know to prepare for the increasing technology on the vehicles our customers will be driving," said Ian Johnston, vice president of sales and marketing at Harman HVS and HDAW ’19 distributor co-chair.
"The record number of distributor attendees at HDAW this year shows us that there is an interest in understanding what impact technology will have on their businesses, both on the trucks and in our back offices."
HDAW also hosted the second Distributor Product Sales Training on the Product Expo floor. More than 100 distributors from 63 companies participated in the training offered by ATRO Engineered Systems, and others.
