Industry Relevance

Automechanika Frankfurt dates back to 1971 and is hosted every two years at Messe Frankfurt. What contributes to the trade fair’s longevity is its format that completely tracks the full process chain – visitors have the opportunity to survey finished products, parts and point-of-sales right down to recycling and disposal. The product portfolio features automotive electronics, body repair, chassis, tank systems, tire assembly, repair equipment, corrosion protection, lubricants, vehicle parts and wheels. Honestly, Automechanika Frankfurt is a one-stop shop for many major buyers in the territory of Europe. The demand has been so high that the Automechanika brand has reached all corners of the world with sister events in South Africa, Mexico, Argentina, Turkey, Dubai, the UK, China, India, Vietnam, Malaysia, Kazakhstan and Saudi Arabia. 

Who Are You Going to Meet?

Because Automechanika Frankfurt has such a wide scope and has been one of the most reputable live events, it’s no wonder to expect some heavyweight exhibitors to rent out booths. Visitors will have the opportunity to meet up with Volkswagen Classic Parts, BASF Coatings, SKANDIX, Hoffmann Speedster parts, BBE Automotive, ISTOBAL, Retromotion and many more. In terms of visitors, the diversity is staggering and encompasses the entire hierarchy. There are trainees and apprentices along with business owners right up to big decision makers such as CEOs and managing directors. In terms of sectors, visitors represent dealerships, service providers, manufacturers, workshops, and garages.

Additional Value of Attending 

We also can’t ignore the dedication to innovation and further education. Visitors can register for three-hour-long workshops on a variety of skill sets that are completely free. The support program also features several award ceremonies and something fun for everyone.

Among all the events perhaps one of the most interesting is the Innovation4Mobility special show. Think of it as a show within a show that focuses on electromobility, hydrogen, alternative fuels, software and operating systems, digitalisation and autonomous driving. The Innovation4Mobility show will feature new product presentations and include a start-up area, where new companies can present themselves to the best of their ability in hopes to gain backing and support from investors.

Of course, Automechanika Academy has invited experts to dive deeper into these technologies and the potential they bring. The lectures, talks and discussions cover the full spectrum of trends. Sustainability also deserves attention and organisers are quite happy to announce the second ever ‘Remanufacturing Day’. Organisers team up with Automotive Parts Remanufacturers Association (APRA) for a packed programme discussing circular economy strategies and remanufacturing. The Science Lab area serves as an extension of the Academy, where colleges and universities take the time to present their research projects on the mobility of the future. 

Lastly, Innovation4Mobility has a dedicated networking lounge. This is a quiet, comfortable space made specifically for people involved in this special show. After a lecture, you can continue the conversation here and expand your professional network. 

The Outlook for 2022 

Automechanika Frankfurt prepares to open its doors in person for the first time since the pandemic started with major additions to its format. Automechanika Frankfurt Digital earned praise and had a positive impact during the months it wasn’t possible to meet face to face. Organisers are keeping the digital platform open and running for visitors and exhibitors, and all programming will also be livestreamed on the platform and then be available after the physical event wraps up. 

Automechanika Frankfurt announced in April it’s joined the ‘Talents4AA’ association, whose big goal is to search, educate and recruit new talent. The lack of trained specialists has been felt in so many industries and the automotive aftermarket is no exception. What Automechanika Frankfurt plans on doing is to raise awareness about new horizons opened by digitalisation, electrification and connectivity. The trade fair will host practical workshops in both English and German, as well as a special programme aimed at schools. Students and the recently graduated can explore varieties of career options by looking at training professions. 

Automechanika Frankfurt also partners with the Fédération Internationale de l'Automobile (FIA) and the Swedish AI and insurtech company Greater Than on a brand new challenge, where you can win exciting prizes. The FIA Smart Driving Challenge is a series of driving challenges set for the months before Automechanika Frankfurt. Drivers have to prove just how good they are behind the wheel. The initiative’s goal is to promote safe, sustainable driving. The winner will receive their award at the trade fair.
