Take a hard look around the industry, and you’ll see an increased interest among the aftermarket and OE supply companies in providing training to the men and women who ultimately service, install and repair their products.
WORLDPAC, a leading importer and distributor of OE and quality aftermarket parts, didn’t wait for the trend, though. They helped create it.
WORLDPAC’s Supplier and Training EXPO (STX) events were initially created in 2009 as the company’s vision to help their customers better succeed in the changing aftermarket environment. It has since grown into an eagerly anticipated biennial event for the 40,000 strong network of WORLDPAC customers. This opportunity to learn the latest in advanced vehicle technologies, as well as the creative business skills needed to take an independent repair business to the next level, are exclusively offered to WORLDPAC partners. The 2016 event, held April 22-24, at the Gaylord Texan Resort outside of Dallas, hosted over 1,600 attendees who took advantage of 160+ course offerings taught by industry experts in their fields.

In addition to the training, the event also hosts a trade expo featuring over 130 displays from parts and tool suppliers from around the world. Here, attendees had the opportunity to interact directly with the suppliers and manufacturers and take advantage of special show pricing on the tools and equipment they need to compete in an ever increasingly competitive business.
