The 2024 Spring NVP Product Expo Is a Continued Success

The winter event in Louisville, Kentucky, provided dealer training and access to new products.

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. The knowledge gained during these sessions translated seamlessly onto the expo floor, where the sales team introduced new products to their dealers.

Paul Devine, vice president of sales and marketing, said, “I am thrilled to witness the tremendous success of the Parts Unlimited and Drag Specialties Expo in Louisville. The dealer attendance, expanded exhibitor space and innovative training format truly highlight the strength and vitality of our industry. I look forward to contributing to the continued growth and excitement of this premier event in the years ahead.”

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.

The Parts Unlimited and Drag Specialties Expo continues to solidify its position as a premier gathering for industry professionals, fostering collaboration, innovation and the exchange of expertise. Plans are already underway for the next installment, promising even more growth and excitement in the years to come. The next NVP Product Expo is planned for Sept. 7-8, 2024 in Milwaukee.
