With 17 shows in 16 countries Automechanika is the world´s biggest B2B trade fair brand.
What exhibitors have to say:
‘Motortec Automechanika Madrid is one of the most important trade fairs for us. 2018 was a challenging year for Spain but things are looking up again. The awareness for solutions that recycle water is increasing – the trend goes towards new solutions that are quick and eco-friendly.’
‘Bringing innovations and emotions together on the same stage – it is a feat that Automechanika accomplishes again and again. It's no wonder that we've been taking advantage of this successful trade fair format for many decades now to show-case our products and services at Automechanika events all around the globe.’
‘Automechanika is a global brand for every facet of the automotive aftermarket. Everyone who knows the industry knows that an Automechanika event is the ideal place for presenting their products and services and for networking, no matter where in the world it is taking place.’
‘The automotive aftermarket has developed rapidly since 1971, and the demands placed on workshops, dealers and parts manufacturers have greatly increased. To name but one example, over the past few decades control units have gone from being practically non-existent to something found in almost every single car. And change is continuing. Yet there is one thing that is certain: The aftermarket is, and will remain, one of the most exciting industries there is.’
‘In spite of the march of digitisation, we continue to work in a people business, because personal interaction leads to better ideas and allows decisions to be made more swiftly. Automechanika is a powerful concept for the aftermarket, and if it didn't exist, we would have to invent it.’

The Automechanika brand is backed worldwide by around 21,000 exhibitors, 600,000 trade visitors and about 50 years of experience.
With the launch of Automechanika Astana licensed to Business Media Central Asia in March 2019, the Kazakhstan market is acquiring a full-fledged flagship fair for the automotive aftermarket. For three years now, Messe Frankfurt has been studying the market while supporting the ‘Kazakhstan International Automotive Expo’. With the positive development in exhibitor and visitor figures, the time is right to place the Automechanika brand in the Kazakhstan market. Thanks to its growing automotive production and the age of the country’s existing vehicles, Kazakhstan will enjoy increasing demand for services, aftersales support and repairs in future, fields in which it will have to rely on imports. This means there will be opportunities for international suppliers of parts and components.
The next show will take place from 27. to 29. March 2019 in the Korme Exhibition Center.
