During his keynote address, Rove will focus on the global impact of President Donald Trump’s imposed and proposed tariffs, as well as how tariffs potentially levied by foreign countries may impact U.S. businesses.

Rove served as senior adviser to President George W. Bush from 2000-‘07 and as deputy chief of staff from 2004-‘07. At the White House, he oversaw the Offices of Strategic Initiatives, Political Affairs, Public Liaison and Intergovernmental Affairs, and coordinated the White House policy-making process.

Rove’s address will be preceded by John King, CNN’s chief national correspondent and anchor of Inside Politics, who will discuss the upcoming mid-term elections and the impact the various outcomes could have on Washington, D.C. King is an award-winning journalist who has covered the past eight presidential elections and reported from all 50 states and more than 70 countries.

The grand opening keynote session will begin with a State of the Automotive Aftermarket Industry presentation by Bill Hanvey, president and CEO of the Auto Care Association, and Bill Long, president and chief operating officer of the Automotive Aftermarket Suppliers Association (AASA).

      Dana Incorporated introduced its Victor Reinz Reinzosil room-temperature vulcanizing (RTV) silicone to North American customers at the recent AAPEX and SEMA shows in Las Vegas.
      “While Victor Reinz Reinzosil RTV silicone has been available for some time, it’s relatively new to the North American market and has quickly become a customer favorite for sealing surfaces in engines, transmissions, axles, cylinder liners and plastic housings,” said Bill Nunnery, senior director, sales and marketing, global aftermarket for Dana. “This is the first time Dana has featured Reinzosil RTV silicone for light-duty vehicles at AAPEX and SEMA, and it was a very positive experience.  Customers told us they prefer it over the brand they have been using and that as a one-tube solution, it helps them reduce inventory and simplify the ordering process.”
      Victor Reinz Reinzosil sealant is resistant to fluids, including mineral oils and synthetic oils, lubricants, gasoline, diesel oil, greases, water and detergents, and is safe for all sensors. Available in 70-milliliter tubes, it is ideal for use on two-dimensional flat surfaces where there is a sealing gap, such as gasket intersections and components originally sealed with RTV by the manufacturer, including intake manifolds, valve covers and oil pans, according to the company.

      Dayco has expanded its lineup of water pumps to include coverage for almost 30 million vehicles that require an electric water pump, with more parts expected to be introduced in 2023.  
      With Dayco’s extensive experience in the OE market, Dayco’s aftermarket team made a strategic move into the category in 2021 knowing automakers were increasingly demanding electric water pumps to enhance fuel efficiency, horsepower and customer comfort.  
      “According to 
      link hidden, please login to view, the global market for this product line reached more than $3.1 billion at the end of 2021,” said Tom Tecklenburg, director of aftermarket, Dayco North America. “It is forecasted to double to almost $7 billion by 2027, so we wanted to be at the ready to help our channel partners as the demand for these parts in the aftermarket builds.”  Originally found on high-end vehicles, today’s electric water pumps are installed in many model passenger cars, and light- and medium-duty trucks, and are notably more common in turbocharged and supercharged vehicles as well as vehicles with start/stop technology, EVs and BEVs.  
      Providing OE-quality performance and meeting critical electrical performance benchmarks, Dayco’s electric water pumps are designed as direct-fit bolt-on replacements that do not require any modifications during installation, according to the company. To prevent rust and premature failure, the pumps are engineered using stainless steel for all water-contact components. In addition, all pump bearings are self-lubricating, graphite composite, making them corrosion-resistant and compatible with engine coolants. 
      “A key benefit to having access to Dayco’s aftermarket line of pumps is that it’s a more cost effective replacement solution compared to expensive OE pumps,” said Tecklenburg. “In addition, we provide an extended 125,000-mile warranty on our all water pumps so that our customers never have to worry about a comeback claim.”

      When PurolatorBOSS premium cabin air filters with Febreze Freshness were introduced, Purolator created a freestanding point-of-sale floor display to promote the product. The display contains high-end graphics and a quality finish with an application guide to assist consumers in finding the right filter for them.
      The display also includes an informative take-home pamphlet for consumers to discover the role a cabin air filter plays in their vehicle. Many buyers gave significant feedback, noting the value of the Febreze partnership, and in turn, creating a dialogue that has led to significant purchases.
      Best Video
      Purolator also was honored with an award for creating a video that emphasizes the needs and concerns of consumers regarding clean air and vehicle performance. Filtering virus aerosols, dirt, debris, pollen and more, the video highlights PurolatorBOSS as a premium cabin air filter to rid these pollutants from a customer’s vehicle.
      The video proved successful, as it garnered hundreds of thousands of views online and millions of impressions on digital TV. Gaining strong engagement on social media, Purolator’s video has continued to inform audiences on the importance of air decontamination.

      Delphi Technologies, a brand of BorgWarner, unveiled its new Sparta fuel-pump line at AAPEX, showcasing the latest offering in its expanded aftermarket portfolio.
      Designed specifically for older and high-mileage vehicles, Sparta made its AAPEX debut with updated visuals and new packaging. The Sparta brand offers another revenue opportunity for distributors and customers, targeting a specific subgroup of older vehicles.
      The company also demonstrated its fuel-tank cleaning tool live at the booth. The tool is designed for scenarios when the fuel tank is difficult to drop or full of fuel; the magnetic head is effective at collecting debris from hard-to-reach areas of the tank. The cleaning tool has been well-received by technicians for helping optimize their productivity and deliver customer satisfaction.
