Industry distributor NTP Distribution Inc. will be celebrating 50 years in business as the company opens its 2012 National Dealer Conference today (Feb. 20) in San Diego.

The event, which runs through Friday, will offer dealers the chance to review NTP’s wide range of RV aftermarket parts and accessories. The conference will also mark the Wilsonville, Ore.-based firm’s first dealer gathering since being acquired by Keystone Automotive Operations Inc. last October.

Several events are scheduled, including a series of vendor workshops, while motivational speaker Garrison Wynn will deliver the keynote address. Highlighting the convention will be an excursion to the USS Midway on Wednesday. Attendees will receive a guided tour of the legendary decommissioned carrier, which is docked at San Diego’s Navy Pier.

NTP is a national supplier of aftermarket products, parts and accessories for dealers in the RV and hitch and tow industries. The company has 200 employees and five distribution centers across the U.S.
