Industry members planning to attend this year’s RV Aftermarket Executive Conference in August have until Friday, July 19, to request one-on-one appointment sessions with RV suppliers.
Initial meeting requests should be submitted on the special conference website established to connect interested distributors with suppliers that have signed up for the program.
The Aftermarket Executive Conference agenda and registration information is available here.
The four-day conference is scheduled for Aug. 12 -15 at the Embassy Suites Hotel, in Denver. So far, 123 individuals from 65 supplier companies have registered to attend, according to RVIA spokesman Kevin Broom.
"Distributor representatives can still set appointments at the event if they are unable to fill out a meeting request by Friday," he said.
An awards ceremony will be held during lunch Aug. 15. Award categories include: Product of the Year, Distributor of the Year, Supplier of the Year, and the annual Jim Barker Lifetime Achievement Award.
The Jim Barker award is judged by previous award winners and recognizes individuals “who have significantly contributed to the success of the RV aftermarket industry.”
