Trade fair to make its debut with ACMA Automechanika New Delhi next month

Having established itself as the prime sourcing hub for manufacturing professionals in west and south of India through its renowned Pune and Chennai editions, Automotive Engineering Show is now set to enter north with an aim to tap the high-potential NCR cluster.

Messe Frankfurt India today announced that Automotive Engineering Show will make its debut in New Delhi in March 2017 alongside ACMA Automechanika New Delhi. The much-awaited business event is scheduled to take place from 22 – 24 March in Pragati Maidan, New Delhi.

In its introductory edition, Automotive Engineering Show will present a combination of meaningful user workshops, a series of highly insightful conference sessions and a compact exhibition area of automotive manufacturing solutions. The strong presence of automotive majors has gained NCR its recognition as one of the country’s largest auto clusters. Targeting the decision makers in the region, Automotive Engineering Show will provide access to need-of-the-hour automation and automotive factory solutions to cater to the needs of both domestic and global automotive players who have set-up their manufacturing base in the country.

While the co-located ACMA Automechanika New Delhi will extensively cover the automotive aftermarket through its six product categories of Parts & Components, Electronics & Systems, Accessories & Customizing, Repair & Maintenance, Management and Digital Solutions and Car Wash, Care & Reconditioning; Automotive Engineering Show will showcase technologies for automotive design, development, planning, quality control, paint and finishing, plant equipment and systems by leading technology players.

Together, the platform will become the center of business for the automotive manufacturers, auto-component and aftermarket players to collaborate and exchange technical know-how over three days.

Alongside the exhibition area, a specialised conference will bring in technology experts to discuss the most relevant aspects of technology convergence in automotive plants. With technology convergence redefining the shopfloor, the exhibition will host an exclusive workshop on industry 4.0 in association with the Automotive Skill Development Corporation.

Another industry-relevant topic to be taken up at the debut edition of Automotive Engineering Show is ‘Surface technology‘ which is playing a crucial role in enabling the design and manufacturing of engineered components with enhanced performance. The workshop has been planned in association with the Society of Surface and Protective Coatings and aims to cover surface degradation and modification processes along with the recent developments and improvements in surface technology that help reduce maintenance and replacement costs and enhance performance.
