Automechanika – Showing off the best of the aftermarket

The show attracted thousands of visitors

So that was our first Automechanika.

Apart from our Publisher David Harris the CAT team had never visited the aftermarket show before, and truth be told we didn’t know what to expect.

Now we’re back and, blisters aside, we’ve had a great time. Walking through hall after hall we talked to aftermarket representatives from all over Europe, and while there were a few murmurs of discontent from some stands the overall mood was very positive.

We heard about plenty of major deals being done at the show. One national UK distributor, for example, signed a new distribution agreement with an Italian firm on the third day of the show. If you needed proof that events like Automechanika are worth attending, there it is.

The next issue of CAT will be packed full of information and news from the show, so look out for it landing on your doorsteps soon.
