It’s a small world after all

Exhibitors love aftermarket trade shows like Automechanika because it allows them to do six months worth of meetings in just a few days.

Journalists love it too because it allows us to catch up with so many companies with the same purpose in mind, good business.

Walking through one of the many Frankfurt halls today I’ve already seen deals being struck and new customers being made. It is great to see the aftermarket selling itself so well.

At the same time I’m still astounded at the sheer size of the show. It’s just taken me half an hour to get from a stand in Hall 6 to the press centre to post this.

The CAT team is spread out all over the show at the moment hunting for the stories that we know will be of interest to the UK trade, and we’ll be reporting on those stories in the next issue of CAT. Watch this space for more.
