The annual ACA awards are sponsored by the Car Care Council Women's Board and Automotive Communication Council, and highlight outstanding advertising, marketing, and public relations activities by automotive aftermarket organizations.

New Vision LED line

The AAPEX New Product Showcase Award, voted on by the attendees at the 2014 AAPEX show who selected their favorite product using a product scanner, was garnered by Philips in the category of Automotive Lighting for their new Philips Vision LED line. Only eight winners were selected overall. Philips innovative line of exterior and interior LED lighting represents a major advance in automotive lighting. It is guaranteed to last for 12 years and the innovative design of the bulb itself is a breakthrough in vehicle lighting.
