On December 5, the Automotive Industries Association of Canada hosted its 2018 Holiday Networking Reception, presented by its Young Executive Society (YES) Committee.

As we count down to the holiday season, AIA’s YES Committee ushered in the holiday cheer by hosting a networking reception at Pablo’s Snack House in downtown Toronto.

The event was an opportunity for members of the automotive aftermarket to share stories, swap ideas and celebrate both the season and the industry.

Everybody who attended was asked to write down on their name tags their first car, providing a great conversation starter.

Additionally, students from the automotive aftermarket program at the Automotive Business School of Canada also attended the event, getting the chance to chat with those active in the industry and gain insight to potential career opportunities. Other highlights included a delightful tasting menu as well as a raffle draw.

Attending from Wakefield Canada were, (L-R) Ian Hutchison, Natalee Davis, Marsha McLaughlin and Vince Pasqualino.
