Time to sign up for 2014 GAAS
The registration brochure for the 2014 Global Automotive Aftermarket Symposium (GAAS) is now available for download at the organization’s website. GAAS will take place May 20-21 in Rosemont, Ill., near Chicago.
The featured session for this year’s event, which is entitled “Connected,” is on telematics.
"We have worked hard on this year’s agenda to assemble a lineup of speakers and panelists that appeals to many segments of the aftermarket," says GAAS chairman Dennis Welvaert.
"One issue in particular, telematics, is important to everyone in the supply chain from repair shop owners to manufacturers. Telematics will be the subject of an insightful 75-minute presentation by four industry leading authorities on the subject."
The annual two-day symposium, now in its 19th year, brings together industry leaders and experts to examine the issues and trends affecting the worldwide automotive aftermarket and influencing its future.
Each year the net proceeds of GAAS are invested in the organization’s scholarship fund to help students get their automotive aftermarket career started. Additional scholarship funding comes from industry contributions from individuals, companies and foundations. To date GAAS, has awarded scholarships to more than 1,800 students representing $1.8 million in aid. The deadline to apply for the 2014 GAAS Scholarship program is March 31, 2014.
