The Automechanika Frankfurt top themes cover the most important trends and developments in the areas of transformation, sustainability, innovations, training and further education and recruiting.
The automotive industry is undergoing a profound transformation. Topics such as supply chain, artificial intelligence and increasing digitalisation are playing an ever greater role in the automotive aftermarket.
The megatrend has long since reached the automotive aftermarket and runs through the entire range of products and services at Automechanika Frankfurt 2024. In addition, the theme is also firmly anchored in the fringe programme.
