Automechanika‘s Mechanic Games are borderline Olympic and represent a challenge for body and mind. At Automechanika Frankfurt participants in the ‘Mechanic Games’ can look forward to small mini-games such as piston lifting and test your strength, the racing car challenge, bull riding and much more. Together with the German Independent Aftermarket Association (VREI e.V.) and its member companies we are organising a competition for you requiring skill and ability, which promises a lot of fun.

The winners’ ceremony for the most successful participants will take place directly at Automechanika Frankfurt, including the presentation of a cheque to the winners. This is something you should not miss!

To take part in the Mechanic Games you will need to register in advance.

More information will soon be available here including online registration for the next games.

REIFEN & Automechanika Keyvisuals

REIFEN as co-located show

REIFEN is a well-known trade fair, previously held in Essen, but which now for the first time will take place concurrently with Automechanika in Frankfurt. A perfect match, since more and more tire dealers offer automobile services, whilst automotive dealers are extending the range of tires they offer.

REIFEN: Hall 12.1
