  • The BIG Show is BIGger than ever

    “I think if you're an entrepreneur, you've got to dream BIG and then dream BIGger.”

    Howard Schultz

    THAT WAS EXACTLY OUR THOUGHT PROCESS WHEN WE DECIDED TO HOST ONE SHOW THIS YEAR — do a thing we do well, BIGger and better. The 2018 BIG Show will combine the best of our East and West Shows in one location. The BIG Show will have the largest exhibit space we have ever used and we will be hosting more suppliers under one roof than we ever have. That means we will have a broader representation of products from all the aftermarket segments for our guests to see. It will be the perfect place for any aftermarket retailer, regardless of their focus, to see trends and new products that they can offer their customers.

    Our plan is to make the BIG Show a North American event. We will be inviting customers from all over the world. The intersection of geography and market interests should make for a truly dynamic environment for all our attendees. By pulling all our resources together for one event we hope to show our customers how we can support them in growing their business in the changing retail environment we all operate in.

    New products and exceptional buying opportunities will continue to be a mainstay at the event. To give people more time to take advantage of all the activities, we will be opening up our show for active buying during the reception on the first night. That means more Power Hours, more deals and more time to connect with suppliers and peers during the largest distributor aftermarket event in North America.

    No BIG Show is complete without a little fun and entertainment. We’ve got plenty of that in store, too. On the floor prize drawing opportunities, vehicle giveaways, concerts and more will keep everyone in attendance hopping.

    2018 will bring other events and programs in line with our plans to enhance the experience for our jobbers, and reach and exposure for our suppliers. Stay tuned for more details.
