AUTOMECHANIKA 2020

Take part from 8 to 12 September 2020 when Automechanika Frankfurt opens its doors for its 26th edition. Here, we will keep you posted about the top themes and innovations of the number one platform for the Automotive Aftermarket. 

The new structure at a glance

 
  • Ten product groups: Body & Paint, Tires & Wheels, Diagnostics & Repair and many more – Automechanika 2020 will be characterised by new themes and a clearly structured portfolio, split into ten product segments for the first time.
  • Body & Paint: The main theme of the fair in Hall 11 is being given its own name for the first time (Body & Paint). The location remains unchanged and it will be accompanied by a comprehensive complementary programme of events in the adjoining Portalhaus.
  • Tomorrow’s Mobility: The ‘Festhalle’ remains the platform for tomorrow’s mobility, which is now split into two sections: ‘Mobility as a Services & Autonomous Driving’ and ‘Alternative Drive Systems & Fuels’.
  • Diagnostics & Repair: Diagnostics is a component part of Automechanika and is now being anchored in the name of the product segment in Halls 8 and 9 (Diagnostics & Repair).
  • Tires & Wheels: The synergies between the tire trade and workshops were confirmed by the last Automechanika. Accordingly, the portfolio of the fair is being extended to include Tires & Wheels in Hall 12.
  • Classic Cars: Following a successful launch at last year’s Automechanika, the business revolving around the cars of yesteryear returns in 2020

Body & Paint: international championship

The bodywork & paint sector has been based in Hall 11 since 2010. From 2020, however, it will have its own dedicated product segment (Body & Paint). Exhibitors with products for bodywork repairs, paintwork and corrosion protection will be even more clearly positioned and assured of the attention due to them in the multi-faceted trade fair. To go with the launch, a competition will be held at selected Automechanika fairs worldwide and conclude with a grand finale in Frankfurt am Main in 2020. With this competition, the fair will offer the ‘Body & Paint’ product segment as an additional highlight greater attention and an emotional and international platform.
