#aftermarket – From 13 to 17 September 2016, Automechanika Frankfurt will once again be the international meeting place for the automotive service industry. To date, more than 1,700 exhibitors from 59 countries have registered and 65 percent of the exhibition space is already taken.
In this connection, Olaf Musshoff, director Automechanika Frankfurt, explains: “The high level of demand and internationality at this early point in time underscore the significance of the fair for our customers who use Automechanika as an innovation platform for their business, and for making new contacts and networking. Thus, visitors can look forward to a very large and wide-ranging spectrum of products and services, giving them an unrivalled overview of the worldwide market.”

As in the past, the subject of basic and advanced training will be one of the most important focal points in 2016. Aimed primarily at workshop employees and proprietors, the range of free certified workshops and training courses, some of them in English, will also be expanded. Automechanika Frankfurt also gives companies and potential trainees the opportunity to meet at the fair. Additionally, the Automechanika Academy is a unique information platform with numerous lectures by renowned experts.
The Automechanika Innovation Award honours the most innovative products and solutions in nine categories with a tenth being added in 2016: the ‘Green Award’, which goes to the most sustainable product among all those entered. All award-winning products will be on show at a special exhibition throughout Automechanika Frankfurt.
