Network Convention Sells Out!


GERMANTOWN, Tenn., March 12, 2018 The Happiest Place on Earth is about to get more crowded. The Automotive Distribution Network has sold out its 14th Network National Convention, with an overflow crowd expected Thursday through Sunday at the Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin Resort in Orlando.


My hats off to The Network’s members, jobbers and service dealers for taking time off from their respective businesses to sharpen their skillset and network with other professionals who are as equally committed to the groups success, says David Prater, president of The Network. The 14th National Convention represents everything The Network is about as our affiliates at every level seek to continually evolve and thrive in an ever-changing industry.

This year, The Network will host more seminars than ever—66 in all—
featuring 15 different instructors and more than 35 topics. Attendees will also benefit from talking shop face to face with the group’s vendor partners on the massive floor Manufacturers’ Exposition. Network affiliates will also be meeting with reps from the Auto Care Political Action Committee (ACPAC) to ensure their voice is heard in Washington, D.C., regarding industry issues.


Attendance this year was undoubtedly sparked by the destination. The Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin Resort features three championship golf courses, 17 restaurants offering cuisine from every corner of the planet, and shuttles to the four nearby Disney parks. The event closes with a St. Patricks Day Bash, followed by a special viewing of IllumiNations: Reflections of Earth,Epcots fireworks and laser show.


Operating under the brands of Parts Plus, Parts Plus Mexico, IAPA and Auto Pride, the Automotive Distribution Network is one of the largest, most diverse program groups in the industry.
