Automechanika 2012

Countdown to Frankfurt fair

Published:  11 July, 2012

The Automechanika trade fair takes place in Frankfurt from 11 to 16 September and will provide visitors with a spectacular array of workshop equipment and tools

The massive show is held every other year and in 2010, 155,000 visitors were presented with the latest products and innovations from 4,471 exhibitors. Halls are divided into the areas of parts & systems, accessories & tuning, repair & maintenance, IT & management and service station & car wash.

You need at least a couple of days to do it justice and make sure you take a comfortable pair of shoes! Look out for the September issue of Aftermarket, published on August 24, for news on the trade fair and the many product launches which will take place in Frankfurt.
