Automechanika Istanbul 2013 ended with an exciting development: From 2014 onwards, the fair will be organized each year. “The change into the annual cycle underlines the dynamic state of the Turkish automotive industry and will give exhibitors and visitors alike the opportunity to sell and trade in the Turkish market on a more frequent basis. This is a major advantage when positioning new products and services in the Turkish market and will create an annual gathering within one of the most important automotive industries of the globe” states Mr. Tayfun Yardim, project manager of Automechanika Istanbul.
The region’s most dynamic and comprehensive event for the automotive industry, Automechanika Istanbul, will open its doors from 10 to 13 April 2014 in Turkey. This international trade fair has been held since 2001 at Istanbul’s TUYAP Fair, Convention and Congress Center and is organized by two of the world’s largest fair organizers: Messe Frankfurt and Deutsche Messe. The fair has shown a significant growth in many aspects: Last edition’s figures of 1,245 exhibitors and 43,812 visitors represents an increase of more than 10% compared to the previous edition. Automechanika Istanbul will continue its strong performance and it will be more international than ever. The Turkish and international industries have already shown a strong demand for space at this premium exhibition.
Automechanika Istanbul has taken its position as the leading international fair in Turkey and the Eurasian region. All relevant professionals and decision-makers from the automotive manufacturing, distribution and repair sectors in the region come together under one roof, creating a powerful coming together of industry leaders.
Automechanika fairs are organized all around the globe in 13 different cities.
