FederatedThe 55th annual Cavalcade of Customs and Training Expo will be held Jan. 9-11 at the Duke Energy Convention Center in Cincinnati, OH. Federated Auto Parts and its long time member, KOI Auto Parts, are partnering again to host one of the country’s premier training and educational opportunities for shop owners and service technicians.

“The Federated-KOI Cavalcade of Customs is one of the best car shows in the nation.

The three-day event will feature training workshops for professional mechanical, body shop and management customers taught by qualified instructors from Federated/KOI manufacturing partners like Federal-Mogul, Dorman, Standard, ACDelco, Four Seasons, Bosch Diagnostics, Motorcraft, Denso, Monroe, Moog, Remy, Specialty Alignment, Airtex, Cardone, VDO, Car Brite and Car-O-Liner. KOI customers will receive a three-day admission pass to the show plus all classes, lunches, and an incentive and savings booklet at a special low price.

“Last year, over 550 of our customers participated in over 1,200 classes and we expect those numbers will grow this year,” said Dave Wesselman, president of KOI. “We will also have 67 vendors in our exposition area providing detailed information about their parts and answers to all of our customers’ tough questions. We thank our vendor partners for working so closely with us to develop this valuable educational program. In addition, we are excited that 225 area vocational students will be attending the show as our guest on January 9.”
