category management committee

We look forward to seeing everyone in person for Connect 2022!  

Our primary focus is providing a safe and healthy environment for all Conference attendees.  Auto Care is working with the Hyatt Regency Orlando to take precautions for the safety of all in attendance at the Conference.  

In addition, to help ensure a safe and productive event as possible, Auto Care staff and representatives will take all appropriate and advisable precautions and measures as advised by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) guidelines for COVID-19.  All attendees will be informed accordingly of any new or updated procedures, plans, and details as they are determined, put in place, or evolved moving towards May.

The Auto Care Category Management Committee works to develop category hierarchies, best practices, education and implementation plans for Category Management in an effort to improve business operations and customer satisfaction.
