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.
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. More information on the programme will be announced in spring 2021.
