Beyond the Conference

The NAPB Data Book is the foundation of NAPB and contains over 300 pages of performance comparisons across the industry, making it easy to identify where your company excels and where improvements are needed most  

Custom Studies are one-off, targeted benchmark studies focusing on a specific area of interest for a member organization; participating OEMs receive the report at no additional cost 

The Client Access Portal (Learn More) is the hub for all of your conference documents. This secure site provides easy access to Conference materials, Focus Day reports, and Custom Studies from the past 10+ years of NAPB 

Insights Dashboard (Learn More) is an interactive version of the NAPB Data Book that gives users easy access to data and flexibility to create custom charts 

Focus Days (Learn More) are full-day, deep-dive sessions on a single topic, providing an opportunity for subject matter experts to drill down to a level of detail that is not possible in a larger group setting

Ducker Carlisle’s Women in Aftersales (CWA) has expanded! After starting as the Women of NAPB in 2019, we are excited to now include others in the industry beyond our parts participants. In addition to the panel & cocktail reception at the conference, we will continue to offer other digital events throughout the year.

Conference Participants are a very important part of the conference! 

The conference is all about the open conversation among peers. From the general attendee in the audience asking questions to the OEM Rep completing the pre-work and speaking on behalf of their company during the session, every attendee adds to NAPB's success.

General Attendees 

As a general attendee, you will be able to listen as OEM Representatives from member organizations discuss and share best practices on each of the breakout session topics. You should come prepared with your key questions and ready to take notes! 

OEM Representatives 

You may have been asked by your Steering Committee Member to be an OEM Representative for one or more sessions at the conference. This means you will be representing your organization during a breakout session discussion. You should feel comfortable speaking to that topic, and come prepared to share and learn from others.
