Automechanika Frankfurt broadens its scope
Automechanika Frankfurt, leading international trade fair for the automotive aftermarket, is creating new structures for the 2020 event, both thematically and physically on the exhibition grounds. The event is scheduled to take place from 8 to 12 September 2020.
At its next edition in 2020, Automechanika Frankfurt is going to feature a strongly differentiated portfolio which will be more clearly organised, particularly in the areas of workshop equipment and future mobility. The event is taking advantage of the new Hall 5 to create important synergies on the exhibition grounds and bring related themes together in the same locations.

For the next Automechanika Frankfurt 2020, products and solutions in the ‘Accessories & Customizing’ area will be grouped together in Hall 12.
In future, products and solutions in the ‘Accessories & Customizing’ area will be grouped together in Hall 12, ensuring that this topic can be found in the direct vicinity of the workshop exhibition in Halls 8 and 9 that will now be called ‘Diagnostics & Repair’.
For the first time, the product groups in focus in Hall 11 will be receiving their own designation at the next Automechanika, ‘Body & Paint’. They will be found in their customary location, and will be supplemented by a comprehensive supporting programme in the adjacent Portalhaus.
The Festhalle will continue to serve as the stage for tomorrow's mobility, and will now be focusing in particular on ‘Mobility as a Service & Autonomous Driving’ and ‘Alternative Drive Systems & Fuels’. The classic cars business was extremely popular at Automechanika 2018, and will be expanded even further as a result.
Synergies were also achieved for workshop and tyre retailers at the last event, so Automechanika 2020 will be expanding to include the new ‘Tires & Wheels’ product group. This theme will remain in Hall 12, where it will be found alongside ‘Car Wash & Care’.
