The Automotive Recyclers Association (ARA) hosted its annual Convention and Exposition this past October in Kansas City, where delegates from the used parts field across North America and beyond gathered for three days of top-notch networking and industry learning.

This year’s theme was ‘Plug into Success’ and focused on themes like thriving in an age of disruption; technological advancements and how they apply to the average auto recycling yard; investing in training and people and much, much more.

“The biggest problem I had at the convention was trying to get from room to room, from event to event, as there were so many interesting presentations happening at the same time!” said Michele Whitmore of Nuhn’s Auto Supplies, a first-time ARA attendee. “I would like to say thank you for Southern Hospitality, and the event in my eyes was a huge success. I would like to extend my gratitude to the OARA Board for giving me this opportunity. The ARA Convention and Expo is something not to be missed.” Check out our exclusive photos from the event and spot some familiar Canadian faces.
