When attendees step into the AAPEX 2018 Mobility Garage, the experience will be technology driven and focused, complete with demos of digital scan tools, underhood training and the latest innovations in electric vehicles and alternative fuel vehicles.
AAPEX represents the $740 billion global automotive aftermarket industry and will take place Tuesday, Oct. 30 through Thursday, Nov. 1, at the Sands Expo in Las Vegas.
AAPEX debuted the Mobility Park concept in 2017, with training and exhibits located outdoors, behind the Sands Convention Centre. This year, the renamed Mobility Garage moves indoors a short walk from exhibits, with training sessions to be located on Level 2, in the Venetian Titian and Bellini Ballrooms.
Attendees also will be able to have one-on-one interactions with exhibitors in Mobility Garage, as well as an augmented reality experience to test and install parts.
AVI, a provider of advanced automotive training since 1994, will lead the Shop Equipment and Technology training in Mobility Garage. The National Alternative Fuels Training Consortium (NAFTC) will lead the training in the Electric Car and Alternative Fuel/Energy section.
All Mobility Garage sessions are included in the AAPEX online registration fee, which is $40 (U.S.) through Friday, Oct. 12. To register, visit: www.aapexshow.com/attendee.

More than 47,000 targeted buyers are expected to attend, and approximately 162,000 automotive aftermarket professionals from 135 countries are projected to be in Las Vegas during AAPEX 2018.
