Over 80 percent of Automechanika Frankfurt exhibitors are coming from abroad

The international automotive aftermarket is getting back together in Frankfurt: from 13 to 17 September 2022 and then in even-numbered years.
Numerous leading companies from over 60 countries have already confirmed their participation for Automechanika Frankfurt 2022.
Event organisers state that recent statements by major industry players have underscored Automechanika’s significance as the sector’s most important international meeting place.
The Automechanika Innovation Awards have also received a record number of submissions; while in-person networking is proving more important than ever, with additional networking lounges now available.
Other areas of focus at the show will include automotive logistics, sustainability, training, professional development and recruiting.
Be it electromobility, connectivity, autonomous driving or digital solutions for workshops and car dealerships, manufacturers and suppliers in the automotive aftermarket will have a wealth of new products and innovations on tap for the upcoming Automechanika Frankfurt.
Automechanika Frankfurt Director, Olaf Mußhoff, is delighted with the positive feedback from the sector.
“I look forward to seeing numerous international key players and trade visitors from all over the world back here in Frankfurt,” Olaf said.
“It is a long-awaited opportunity to do business in person and enjoy an up-close experience of new products and live presentations.
“We have created new formats for the occasion and put important trend topics on the agenda.”
Event organisers state that no other trade fair covers the entire value chain of the automotive aftermarket like Automechanika Frankfurt, with an international Who’s Who of the industry set to get together at the Frankfurt exhibition grounds.
Today more than ever, the focus is on innovations and trends, and it’s not just the exhibitors’ stands where these can be found. The ‘Innovation4Mobility’ showcase presents pioneering solutions for connected vehicles and climate-neutral mobility; while more products than ever before have nominated for the Automechanika Innovation Awards.
Also planned is a forum focusing on automotive supply chain management, an area in which the industry urgently needs greater dialogue and new ideas.
Attracting young people and talents of all ages to the automotive aftermarket is another area where action is needed, so the fair’s management has put training, professional development and recruiting at the top of the agenda. Special events for pupils and newcomers are planned, as are accident repair management workshops and training for professionals.
The industry’s new ‘Talents4AA’ initiative will also be shining a spotlight on employment and career opportunities at the fair; while sustainability is yet another area of focus with the show set to host ‘Remanufacturing Day.’
Remanufacturing Day, which is held in collaboration with the international Automotive Parts Remanufacturers Association (APRA), takes place on 14 September and features experts presenting the latest developments in remanufacturing and the circular economy. The topic will also be present in the exhibition halls, with a special green remanufacturing logo identifying those exhibitors offering products and services in this area.
At the FIA Smart Driving Challenge sub-event sponsored by Automechanika that takes place in advance of the trade fair, the focus is on driving in the most sustainable and resource-conserving manner possible. Anyone who drives and also owns a smartphone is free to participate. The goal is to collect as many points as possible through intelligent and environmentally friendly driving – the winner will be honoured at Automechanika Frankfurt.
