Italian flair adds exciting touch to Automechanika Dubai
This year’s Automechanika Dubai exhibition will have a boost of turbo-charged Italian flair, with companies from Italy revving their engines ahead of the Middle East and Africa’s largest automotive aftermarket trade fair. The show takes place from 10 to 12 June 2019.
More than 1,800 exhibitors from 60-plus countries will partake in the 17th edition of Automechanika Dubai in June 2019, with more than 350 of that figure hailing from Europe. Italy, known worldwide for its reputation as a producer of high-end sports cars, is also a major aftermarket player, exporting 15.3 billion dollars worth of auto parts and components in 2018 according to data aggregator World’s Top Exports.

Europe will have a powerful presence at Automechanika Dubai 2019.
The United Arab Emirates (UAE) is among the top ten markets for high quality and genuine Italian auto parts, and now major players are gearing up for more growth targeting trade buyers, distributors, and importers from throughout the wider Middle East, Africa, and Western Asia.
The Italian presence at Automechanika Dubai 2019 highlights the Southern European country’s prominence, and when the three-day event opens at the Dubai International Convention and Exhibition Centre, more than 70 Italian manufacturers will assume their positions across 2,000 sqm of exhibition space.
“The Middle East and Africa is a key developing market for European auto parts and accessories, which is why the presence of manufacturers from the Old Continent at Automechanika Dubai has always been strong,” said Mahmut Gazi Bilikozen, Show Director for Automechanika Dubai.
“Italy, Germany, UK, Belgium, Spain, France, and Poland will all have dedicated country pavilions at the show in 2019. There’ll also be more than 25 European exhibiting countries overall, with some of the biggest names in the business set to take part this year.”
