Following our most successful and well-attended annual meetings in recent memory, I am very excited to announce that the ABPA’s 2017 Annual Meeting & Convention will be held on April 25-28, 2017 in Atlanta, Georgia!

Our host hotel will the Renaissance Atlanta Midtown, a Marriott property. The hotel is centrally located, with great access to the airport, restaurants, and nightlife in “Hotlanta.”  We have secured an ABPA convention rate of only $169 per night. We’ll provide a link to the hotel’s reservation system with our special rate as soon as it is available.

UPDATE:  Reservations at the special low ABPA Annual Meeting rate can now be made at the Renaissance Atlanta Midtown by clicking on this link: Book your group rate for Automotive Body Parts Association ANNUAL CONFERENCE.

Attendees at previous Annual Meetings have found that staying on-site at the host hotel makes it much easier and more convenient to participate in the many business sessions, breakout sessions and social events.

What else can you expect in Atlanta? Aside from another terrific line up of guest speakers and industry experts, we will be collaborating with I-CAR® on a golf event, tentatively scheduled for Wednesday, April 26.

In addition, we are currently in the planning stages of a special event that will really put the week in top gear! More information on this special activity, as well as details of the Annual Meeting & Convention, will be released as they become available.

As always, we rely on our sponsors and exhibitors to help make our Annual Meeting & Convention a success. We’ll be sending out a special “fast start” sponsorship offer to all previous sponsors and exhibitors in the next several weeks, and following that up with a package of sponsor opportunities for others across the aftermarket industry.

We’re looking forward to seeing all of you in Atlanta next April!
