SPARK Guiding Lights are professionals within the global aftermarket. They serve as personal guides and liaisons throughout SPARK’s three days. Your Guiding Light makes the critical personal introductions that help shape your SPARK experience. Help them help you by telling them what interests you most.  What are your goals for attending SPARK?

Guiding Lights help you make the most of your time.

“I learned from my Guiding Light that this industry is all about connections and building relationships.”
