ABPA 2023 Nashville Convention

Smithfield, RI (October 3, 2022): The 2023 Annual Meeting & Trade show of the Automotive Body Parts Association (ABPA) will be held April 25 – April 27, 2023, at the DoubleTree Hilton Downtown Nashville located in Nashville, TN. The event is a gathering of aftermarket parts manufacturers, distributors, insurance industry executives, and collision repair companies. In addition to the ABPA’s business meetings, the event features keynote speakers who will discuss legislative, legal and management topics, as well as breakout educational sessions. More details and online registration for the event can be found at the ABPA’s website. Attendees can reserve a hotel package that includes a room rate of $259 per night.

“Our 2022 Convention held in Newport Beach was a great success with attendees getting together after some time away and enjoying themselves in California,” said Ed Salamy, Executive Director of the ABPA. “Our Annual Meeting is a fantastic opportunity for the leaders and business owners of the aftermarket parts industry to get together, discover the latest trends, and make valuable connections. We expect even more attendees to participate in ABPA Nashville 2023 due to fewer travel restrictions and its popular location in the heart of downtown Nashville”.

Registration is now live for the event with early-bird pricing being offered for a limited time. Attendees for the 2023 ABPA Nashville Convention will have the opportunity to participate in the sendoff party which will be held at the historic Wildhorse Saloon on Thursday 4/27/23. This must-attend event will be included in all ABPA registrations. The annual ABPA Golf Invitational is also back with a full outing planned on Wednesday, 4/26/23.

Salamy added, “The annual ABPA meeting is always a great opportunity for our attendees to network, learn new things, and have a great time. An exciting speaker lineup will be announced over the upcoming weeks. The ABPA Board and I look forward to a large gathering of members in Nashville!”
