16 Apr 2020

Latin America’s most important event for the automotive aftermarket moved to September

After careful consideration, and in light of the ongoing COVID-19 developments, INA PAACE Automechanika Mexico City, Latin America’s largest international trade show for the automotive aftermarket, OE manufacturing and service industry will be postponed. INA PAACE Automechanika Mexico City will now take place September 24-26, 2020 at Centro Citibanamex in Mexico City, Mexico.
“As the situation has escalated, we feel that we must act in the best interest of our exhibitors, visitors, and the industry overall, and rescheduling the event will enable us to provide the experience all of our participants deserve in a safe environment,” said Cesar Alvarez, INA PAACE Automechanika Mexico City Show Director.

INA PAACE Automechanika Mexico City is a unique platform that showcases the latest technology and advancements over the entire spectrum of the automotive aftermarket industry. It has become a crucial meeting point for industry professionals seeking new suppliers, access to the latest products and technology, and unparalleled training opportunities.
