Just weeks before the annual National Vendor Presentation
in Madison, Wis., Parts Unlimited/Drag Specialties has announced plans to
withdraw from the 2013 Dealer Expo to focus on launching two new regional
dealer showcases in 2013.
“We will not be displaying at the 2013 Indianapolis Trade
Show,” says Lemans VP of sales Greg Blackwell. “We feel that we can no longer
justify the cost to participate.”
The distributor will produce a West Coast Regional Showcase March 23-24, 2013 in Anaheim, Calif., and a Northeast Regional Showcase April 6-7, 2013 in Valley Forge, Penn.
“Our plan is to produce a Reno Style Showcase where we will
feature over 200 vendor booths in each of these shows,” says Blackwell. “We
will host a Saturday afternoon Rep/Dealer preview, a Saturday evening Meet
& Greet and a Sunday Showcase.”

showcase events and for coverage of the annual NVP in August.
