MEMA Aftermarket Suppliers has announced the theme of the 2024 Heavy Duty Aftermarket Dialogue (HDAD), to be held on Monday, Jan. 22, 2024 at the Gaylord Texan Resort and Convention Center in Grapevine, TX. The program, which is co-presented by MEMA Aftermarket Suppliers and MacKay & Company, will be themed “Bridging the Gap Between Today’s Challenges and Tomorrow’s Triumphs.”
“The last few years have presented some major challenges for suppliers to the commercial vehicle suppliers to the aftermarket, and they only seem to be continuing,” said Collin Shaw, chief commercial vehicle officer at MEMA. “However, these challenges and how we respond to them are valuable learning opportunities for our members to help them advance their businesses and move the industry forward stronger than ever before.”
This year’s conference will feature new additions, including “Talk from the Top: One-on-One Conversations with Top Aftermarket Leaders” and “How New Powertrain Technology Will Impact the Heavy Duty Aftermarket: A Look into 2035-2050” with MacKay & Company and Schwartz Advisors, according to MEMA Aftermarket Suppliers.
Other key sessions include an OEM keynote speaker and a Distributor CEO panel.
