Parts Unlimited and Drag Specialties hosted the return of their in-person NVP Product Expo to Louisville, Kentucky, marking the fourth year of this event. The Expo took place on Jan. 20-21 at the Kentucky International Convention Center (KICC).
The NVP Product Expo weekend commenced on Thursday with an innovative training format for the Parts Unlimited and Drag Specialties sales team, extending into Friday. This unique training provided the sales team with invaluable, up-close interactions with vendors.

On Saturday and Sunday, the NVP Product Expo unveiled an array of exciting new brands and products, offering attendees opportunities to connect with industry-leading brand representatives. Dealers present at the expo enjoyed exclusive discounts and additional incentives from participating vendors. Saturday evening saw the industry come together for the iconic Meet & Greet, hosted at The Sports & Social Club in the heart of downtown Louisville’s vibrant 4th Street Live Entertainment District. The event featured a delightful blend of food, drinks, games and live entertainment, providing the perfect conclusion to a successful day of networking and business engagement.
