Dubai, May 25, 2010
Automechanika Middle East 2010, the region’s largest and most representative trade and networking event for the automotive aftermarket industry, opened today (May 25) in Dubai.
The show, which was inaugurated by Lt Col Dhahi Khalfan Tamim, Chief of Dubai Police, will run until May 27 at the Dubai International Convention and Exhibition Centre.
The opening day saw a large turnout from across the spectrum of the regional automotive aftermarket, many of whom were there to source new products or supplies, contact manufacturers, research new trends and developments in the industry globally or scout new business potential and explore fresh markets.
“Automechanika is one of our biggest exhibitions and we are delighted this year to have reached the milestone of 1,000 exhibitors marking the most we have had to date,” said Ahmed Pauwels, chief executive officer, Epoc Messe Frankfurt, organisers of the event.
“The show continues to grow and we expect a positive response from our exhibitors and trade visitors to this year’s edition.”
On display at Automechanika Middle East is a range of parts for motor vehicles, as well as components for the drive, chassis, body, electrics and electronic groups, equipment for vehicle service and repair, bodywork repair and painting, tyres, batteries and performance systems.
The concurrently running Automechanika Academy – a series of seminars and work-shops featuring industry experts and decision makers discussing the current issues and trends governing the industry – is proving a big hit, with large numbers of professionals involved in the regional industry attending, a statement said. – TradeArabia News Service
