FUTURE IS NOW AS AUTOPROMOTEC GETS UNDERWAY

The biennial Autopromotec trade fair is underway in Bologna.

The 2017 edition sees 1,651 exhibitors, of which 42 percent are from countries other than Italy with the UK, Germany and Spain as well as China and Taiwan making up the greatest number of international exhibitors.

Also new for this edition is an entire hall transformed into a ‘Workshop Concept’ with demonstrations of equipment, both current and prototype, that will form the garage of the future.

The show has returned all the usual features, including a busy seminar programme that has presentations and training by experts and legislators from all over Europe.

When asked, Autopromotec Show Manager Emanuele Vicentini admitted that it was ‘a risk’ to have such a number of training based attractions that could potentially take visitors away from the floor. “However, we feel that it is important that garage owners and technicians can touch and see the equipment of the future, as we want to make sure the aftermarket trade is ready for the challenges that await in the coming years” he said.
