After a two-year hiatus, Lordco Auto Parts announced that its annual trade show is returning to its traditional live format and venue in April 2022.
Lordco Auto Parts customers and partners are invited to attend the 32nd Annual Tradeshow in person, on April 4-5, at the Pacific Coliseum and PNE Agrodome in Vancouver, British Columbia. Admission, parking, food, and drink are all free, and customers are encouraged to register before Friday, March 18, to avoid the lines. The event will run from 1:00 PM to 10:00 PM daily.
The Lordco Auto Parts 32nd Annual Trade Show marks the return of one of Canada’s premier aftermarket industry events. It has not been held since 2019 due to pandemic related restricts that took effect in British Columbia just days before the 2020 edition was due to be held. Most restrictions were lifted by the province over the last few weeks, allowing for the return of in person events.
Since its inaugural debut in 1990, the trade show has been a bustling, in-person event, attracting up to 20,000 thousand people from the automotive industry and aftermarket sector each year.
Lordco Auto Parts customers attend the show to interact with suppliers, see the latest products and take advantage of Red Sheet Specials, limited-time savings on select items. The specials represent Lordco Auto Parts’ best prices of the year on popular items, making the show the opportunity for shop owners, fleet managers, and dealerships to stock up and save on products they purchase often.
“Knowing how much our customers, suppliers, and our team look forward to the show, we spend months preparing and planning to ensure each year’s event is bigger and better than the last,” says Sarah Durant, vice president of marketing.
“After not being able to have our traditional live show in 2020 and 2021, we are excited to welcome everyone back to the Pacific Coliseum and PNE Agrodome this year. We can’t wait to see familiar faces and do business in a fun and energetic atmosphere again.”
At the height of the COVID-19 pandemic, Lordco Auto Parts decided to move its trade show to an online format. The online shows offered a month-long promotional period and were well-received given the health restrictions but lacked opportunities for staff, suppliers, and customers to connect in person.
“At this year’s show, we have hundreds of partners representing the best parts, tools, equipment, and chemical lines in the industry attending,” says Durant. “After two years, they are eager to connect with our customers, introduce new items from their lines, and answer any questions our customers have.”
In addition to Red Sheet Specials, product demonstrations, and sales representatives eager to share information, attendees can enter to win prizes offered by select exhibitors at the show. For anyone not able to attend the show in person, Lordco Auto Parts will again offer an online component.

Anyone interested in attending the show in person should register before March 18, 2022, to ensure delivery of show packages, including name badges, before the show start date.
