Autopromotec about to go live

The first major international aftermarket show since the pandemic is about to begin.

Over 1,300 companies from 35 countries will be exhibiting at Autopromotec in. Bologna starting tomorrow (May 25). Demand to exhibit has been so intense, the organiser has opened an extra hall since the last edition, way back in 2019.

Autopromotec is back

The entire spare parts, components and car service sector, which has seen a sudden increase in activity, is on display in Halls 14, 16, 18 and 21, with an additional hall, No. 14 being added compared to the last edition. Equipment for tyre servicing and repair, workshops and lifting can be found in Halls 19 and 29. Hall 28 and part of Hall 29 are dedicated to lubricants, Hall 30 is dedicated to diagnostic equipment, while Hall 26 and part of hall 29 are dedicated to bodywork equipment and products. Companies in the new and retreaded tyres and wheel rims sector can be found in Hall 20; tools, compressors and multi-purpose equipment can be found in Hall 36 while equipment and products for service stations, car washes and car care can be found in Hall 25.

Other than the scores of halls of exhibitors, there are six outdoor outdoor demonstration areas, where, among other things, equipment for roadside assistance can be found.
