Automechanika Frankfurt will be held from the 10th to the 14th of September

Demand for classic cars is a global phenomenon that shows no signs of slowing. As a leading international trade fair brand, Automechanika says it is leveraging its events around the globe to establish a new B2B network in the classic car sector.
This effort is being kicked off in Frankfurt, where more than 300 exhibitors have already announced that they will be presenting products for the classic car business in the Parts and Components, Diagnostics and Repair and Body and Paint product areas.
There will also be various panel discussions and presentations featuring respected international industry players in which a variety of issues will be discussed, including: What can be done to get young people interested in the classic car business and help them get training and qualifications? Where can digital solutions be deployed in the private customer segment? What will be necessary to ensure a successful business in future?
Properly equipped and staffed workshops are essential for the maintenance and restoration of these vehicles.
“At Automechanika in Frankfurt, interested workshops can network directly with the professionals in the classic car sector and share ideas on such important topics as parts procurement, trends and changes in the field, along with a variety of other relevant subjects like finding the right paintwork solutions,” Automechanika Frankfurt Director, Olaf Mußhoff, said.
“To make this possible, we are working with our partners and experienced experts to create a program that has a lot to offer.”
In addition to networking, training and professional development, there will also be opportunities to see historical vehicles live and in person at the trade fair, where enthusiasts like Italy’s world-class collector Corrado Lopresto will be exhibiting selected show cars – including award-winning vehicles.
The very first “Rhine-Main Classic Rallye” and its 100 participating classic and collectible cars will also be paying a visit to the Frankfurt exhibition grounds. There will even be some extraordinary exhibits for motorcycle fans.

Brand new format: the Automechanika Classic Car podcast
A new classic car podcast series also went online in late March. Initiated and moderated by classic car expert Jürgen Book, this new Automechanika format is being supported by the trade journal FML and its Editor-in-Chief Wolfgang Auer.
Every month, the podcast features classic car enthusiasts that visitors can meet in person at the trade fair in September. The podcast’s six episodes focus on such topics as business models, challenges and visions – as well as a few personal anecdotes.
