2nd Annual European Automotive Aftermarket Summit

We are pleased to invite you to the “2nd Annual European Automotive Aftermarket Summit” scheduled on October 6th and 7th, 2016 in Berlin, Germany.

 

This premier B2B event provides the appropriate platform to engage and discuss ideas with your fellow peers, while facilitating a professional atmosphere and environment for good company representation and development. Rutronik-Automotive

The Summit will shed light on current challenges, best practices and the inside view of the future of aftermarket. We will discuss key findings, including critical insights, as well as recommendations for driving innovative aftermarket framework.

The parts, accessories, etc. for sale may or may not be manufactured by the OEM. Replacement parts are automotive parts built or remanufactured to replace OE parts as they become worn or damaged. Accessories are parts made for comfort, convenience, performance, safety, or customization, and are designed for add-on after the original sale of the motor vehicle.

The aftermarket encompasses parts for replacement, collision, appearance, and performance, including electric propulsion. The aftermarket provides a wide variety of parts of varying qualities and prices for nearly all vehicle makes and models.

Consumers have the option of repairing their vehicles themselves (the “do-it-yourself” or “DIY” segment) or can take the vehicle to a professional repair facility (the “do-it-for me” or “DIFM” segment). The aftermarket helps keep vehicles on the road by providing consumers the choice of where they want their vehicles serviced, maintained, or customized.
