Published:  08 July, 2021

75% of the 200 companies exhibiting at this year’s Automechanika Frankfurt Digital Plus will have physical stands at the showground, the organisers have revealed.

While ongoing Coronavirus concerns have meant the next full show has been postponed again until 2022, this year’s mixture of live and virtual, centred on the Frankfurt Exhibition Centre from 14-16 September has attracted a number of companies who want to be there in person. These include Schaeffler, Hunter, LIQUI MOLY, SATA, Snap-on Equipment, Kärcher, WashTec, Hengst and Audatex.

Exhibitors will be coming from Germany, but also from Belgium, France, the Netherlands, Italy, Spain, Portugal, Switzerland, Denmark, Finland, Poland, Hungary, the Czech Republic, Bulgaria, Croatia, Lithuania, Georgia, Ukraine, Russia, Greece, Turkey, India, the United Arab Emirates, Korea, China, Taiwan, Australia, and the UK.

Famous names who will be taking part digitally include Continental, Mahle, Robert Bosch, and for the first time ever at Automechanika Frankfurt, BMW with its Original Spare Parts division.

In terms of attractions, the Future Repair Shop 4.0, in collaboration with the Institute for the Automotive Industry (IfA), will be showing future technologies and processes. Meanwhile, a host of workshops will be held, along with several live accident repair demonstrations, hosted by FabuCar and the Car Doctors.

In addition, the Automechanika Academy will be running a wide-ranging programme covering; Tomorrow’s Service & Mobility, Electromobility, 3D Printing and Car Wash.

Meanwhile, looking at the circular economy, the first Automechanika Remanufacturing Day will be held on 15 September, in cooperation with the Automotive Parts Remanufacturers’ Association (APRA).

The smaller show, with its hybrid format merging online and in-person interaction, will offer a great degree of flexibility, according to Olaf Musshoff, Director of Automechanika Frankfurt: “I’m really pleased that our ‘plug & play’ offer of fully equipped stands has been so well received and that so many companies who’ve signed up want to meet in person again in Frankfurt. However, even those who are not coming to Frankfurt can take part in our wide-ranging complementary programme.”

He added: “Thanks to our new online features, we’ll be providing additional options for presentation, for networking and for a wide international reach.”
