There are more than 1800 exhibitions on display, with over 125,000 visitors expected to peruse the stands over the next five days, with 75 percent of exhibitors from abroad. This includes 27 representatives from the UK, such as Prestolite, Quinton Hazell, Rolling Components and Manbat.
Equip Auto 2013 is focused on providing more business opportunities for visitors, and has designed a dedicated meeting area for buyers and distributors, promoted to 5000 international contacts, to build and develop working business relationships.
A larger training presence will ensure visitors benefit from latest knowledge and insight from the aftermarket, with on stand demonstrations from suppliers, tailor made training sessions, technical seminars and forums.
There is also news that Equip Auto is also looking to the future and how to build relationships further afield.
Currently there are ongoing discussions to host Equip Auto in Asia and the Mediterranean to help increase its exposure. The development is still at an early stage, with the plan to implement any expansions to the show slowly and steadily.
