The Automotive Body Parts Association (ABPA) is pleased to announce that it has chosen the Westin Fort Lauderdale Beach Resort as the location for the annual ABPA Convention to be held from April 30-May 3, 2019. After numerous site visits by the ABPA Convention Committee members, the Westin Beach Resort was chosen for its ideal location, modern meeting space, and tremendous value for our attendees. Did I mention the location? The hotel is situated directly across the street from the Fort Lauderdale Beach. Many rooms offer unparrelled ocean views!  Also on site is an expansive pool and wonderful dining options. For special activities, we will be offering something for everyone!  On Wednesday, 5/1/19, you can choose from the Golf Event or a Marina & Mansion Boat Tour!  Once you select your ABPA package, you will see your options for the Wednesday activities (activites at extra cost).
