“AAPEX is an important opportunity to showcase K&N products to auto parts professionals that are focused on replacement parts for retail sales as well as commercial sales to automotive service providers. We are focused on educating people about K&N and why they might choose to partner with us,” said Tim Martin, K&N Vice President.

“Some AAPEX attendees do not attend SEMA, so we feel that there is benefit from being in both shows. K&N’s AAPEX display is similar to SEMA, but on a smaller scale without all of the technology displays. Attending two of the largest trade shows of the year at the same time is a challenge, but we have a great team that pulls together to make it happen,” said Martin.

“K&N lifetime air filters will also be showcased in the AAPEX Green Zone, which is a new display area featuring environmentally responsible products,” said Martin. “K&N cotton air filters are washable and reusable and are a good alternative to disposable air filters.” The AAPEX Green Zone will be located in the Venetian Hotel Ballroom that adjoins the Sands Expo Center.

K&N is also supporting the Drive Around the World Organization in planning a 2008 expedition to the South Pole using vehicles powered by alternative fuels. The goals of the project are to demonstrate that alternative fuels are viable, that the scientific and geographic research in the pole regions should expand, and the importance of climate change. The K&N AAPEX booth will have a heavily modified Zero South tracked expedition vehicle that is planned to reach the South Pole using K&N filters.

It takes a great deal of resources to plan and execute these shows, but K&N is very committed to this industry and its growth. SEMA and AAPEX are a unique opportunity to interact with our distributers and retailers. It is an opportunity to educate people and also an opportunity to learn.
