The Autopromotec trade exhibition will move to 2022, organisers have confirmed.
The biennial show, held in Bologna during Frankfurt off years, has now been rescheduled to 25-28 May, 2022 in order for ‘companies to invest their financial resources at a more appropriate moment’.
“The Covid-19 pandemic continues to register high rates of contagion, and severe limitations to international travels persist”, says Renzo Servadei, Autopromotec CEO. “A proper planning on the part of all the players of the sector is crucial to create a high-level event, but the uncertainty related to the measures to deal with the sanitary crisis makes it difficult to national and international exhibitors and visitors to plan their business travels well in advance.”
Other trade shows have also changed schedule out of necessity. Automechanika Frankfurt will now take place in 2021, and Paris-based EquipAuto has indicated that it is considering a change in ‘positioning and format’ of its event.
