This year, the Product Sales Training will take place Wednesday, Jan. 26, on the product expo floor. During the four-hour event, attendees can visit exhibiting supplier’s booths or the HDAW Product Training Theater to hear exhibitors make new product announcements, highlight the value of their solutions, explain product benefits, and answer specific questions for each customer’s unique situation.

HDAW ’22 will host heavy-duty aftermarket professionals for four days of educational workshops, one-on-one business meetings, a Service Opportunities Learning Day (sold), product training, valuable networking opportunities with top industry executives of all major heavy-duty suppliers, and a product expo that offers an exclusive view of the latest products in the heavy-duty aftermarket. The theme for HDAW ’22 is “Strong Like You,” which signifies the industry’s resilience throughout the pandemic.
