The 2024 Australian Auto Aftermarket Expo (AAAE) and Collision Repair Expo (CRE) is the biggest automotive aftermarket trade show in Australia

Wayne Bryant, CEO Automotive Division, GPC Asia Pacific (Repco) and Australian Automotive Aftermarket Association Chairman.

This year’s expo promises to bring thousands of auto trade visitors from Australia, New Zealand and beyond together under one roof.
The Australian Auto Aftermarket Association (AAAA) Leadership Team and Board looks forward to welcoming all expo visitors to the Melbourne Exhibition Centre for a unique chance to network, learn, and build both their businesses and careers.
What a significant milestone the 2024 expo is, being just the second of its kind since emerging from the disruption imposed upon us all during the COVID pandemic.
The expo’s magnitude reflects the incredible support of many. On behalf of the AAAA Leadership Team and Board, I would like to thank all exhibitors who are helping to make the Expo happen.
I would especially like to thank all our amazing sponsorship partners (see opposite page). Without your support, these prominent industry events would be challenging to run and important opportunities may not be realised. Your support and investment are truly appreciated.
Through the expo, we’re bringing together the industry’s best and brightest while showcasing hundreds of the country’s leading companies. The International Pavilion is also back this year, connecting expo visitors with suppliers from across the country and across the globe, right in the heart of Melbourne.
Trade repairers have told us that they wanted business-building opportunities so we have responded to that strong demand. The 2024 expo includes a range of informative seminars that will deliver many valuable opportunities for visitors to connect, learn and build their businesses. We’re thrilled with the expo speaker line-up and thank all speakers in advance for their participation.
Our industry is constantly evolving, so several exciting new features further elevate the 2024 expo. Two new zones will be launched, one focused on EVs and one on ADAS calibration. A 4WD Innovation Zone has similarly evolved since its inaugural appearance in 2022. Visitors are bound to be even more impressed at the growth and diversification of this year’s 4WD Innovation Zone.
Undoubtedly, the AAAA expo brings our industry together in a way unlike any other. I am both personally and professionally proud that Repco and NAPA are major exhibitors at the event and that Repco is the major sponsor of the expo.

Repco and NAPA, as part of Genuine Parts Company (GPC), are automotive aftermarket industry leaders and we recognise the expo as a catalyst for industry growth, learning and advancement. For any auto trade business or specialist seeking to further strengthen their position as a trusted, innovative industry leader, the 2024 expo is the place to be.
Future focus is a key part of our purpose at GPC, where we play a significant role in keeping the world moving. We have high ambitions for growth, networking, partnership and emerging capabilities.
Expo auto trade visitors are a highly influential global group. Repco and NAPA’s strong presence in the expo enables our teams to connect with fellow industry leaders, influential decision-makers and pioneers whose innovations will support and shape our industry going forward.
To us, the expo is an unparalleled chance to deepen our relationships with our customers and suppliers. Such connections empower us to create opportunities for our industry and the businesses, individuals and communities within it, to thrive.
The expo is not just a chance for Repco and NAPA to showcase what they do. It is also an opportunity for us to learn and gain valuable insights into how we can continue to enhance our Customer Value Propositions (CVPs) and be better supplier partners for our customers.
The expo will showcase diverse capabilities, products and solutions from across our industry and we are genuinely excited to learn and share at this industry leading event.
The 2024 Expo is an event not to be missed and we look forward to connecting with all participants at the expo, seminars and industry events being conducted across the three days, Thursday the 11th to Saturday the 13th of April 2024.
