Automechanika Academy

Visit the Automechanika Academy lectures and events. Second to none as a vision of tomorrow’s world, these lectures, seminars and practical training sessions are provided as part of the trade fair and are unique in terms of their breadth and depth.

Automechanika Academy Lecture

Future inspired, technical lectures, panel discussions and presentations are held under the Automechanika Academy umbrella on different stages of the Frankfurt Fair and Exhibition Centre.

In the Festhalle the topic is Mobility of the Future: discover the digitalised and networked world surrounding the motor vehicle, including the future of vehicle servicing and repair.

In the Galleria near Hall 8 and the Portalhaus building near Hall 11 the technical lectures and workshops highlight the daily challenges facing workshops, focussing on the vehicle repair business in bodywork and spray painting workshops.

The Automechanika Academy’s scope and content covers many additional professional qualifications. As in previous years, participation in all Automechanika events is free of charge and you are not required to pre-register.

Highlights of Automechanika Academy

Re-inventing mobility: ‘Mobility as a basic need is more than car, bicycle, railway or aircraft. Toyota puts the individual in every life situation at the centre of its strategy – a visionary and pioneering model.’

Andy Fuchs

The impact of future mobility on car-interior design: ‘Reading, working, comfortably eating or playing cards – in future everything will be possible in a car – for the driver, too. What will this mean for the interior? Will the car become our new home?’

Dominique Taffin

The radical impact of digitalisation – How the net is changing the world and what that will mean for our understanding of mobility: ‘Digitalisation cannot take the road away from us. But it can make the road faster, simpler, more attractive and more relaxed. What will that mean for the individual?’

Sascha Lobo

BMW 2021 – strategy and roadmap in terms of autonomous driving: ‘A brave new world in which we will just let ourselves be driven. But what requirements of technology and the car itself does the customer have today, and what in the near future? BMW gives answers.’

Dr. Dirk Wisselmann

The future is electric: How Oslo became the World’s first mass market for electric vehicles: ‘Everyone wants electromobility as quickly as possible. But will that work? A personal report from the city with the highest e-vehicle ratio.’

Sture Portvik

Digital workshop - more service thanks to vehicle data: ‘Why should we bother to do something that the intelligent car can do itself? In future care and maintenance will be made even simpler – to raise the quality of life.’

Rolf Mack

Care by Volvo – the new way to own a premium car: ‘The car, as convenient as a Netflix subscription. Volvo wants to make it as simple as possible for the customer – completely reflecting his needs. An interesting model which works.’
