Hall map of Autopromotec 2022

The next physical edition of Bologna aftermarket trade show Autopromotec has been confirmed for 25-28 May 2022.


Organisers say that bookings for the fair are already high, with some halls sold out and extra space for some market sectors added. Accordingly, potential exhibitors are urged to register their interest ahead of an October 30 deadline. 

The previous event in 2019 was regarded as a success, both in terms of the number of visitors and of the quality and quantity of the exhibition stands. However, it has always previously been held in Frankfurt ‘off” years. The 2022 event will be the first time it has been held so close to the German show. 


Renzo Servadei, CEO of Autopromotec, comments on the high number of applications received: “We are very proud to confirm that Autopromotec 2022 will be massively attended by the entire national and international automotive aftermarket sector. Even before the official closing of registrations, which will be on 30 October, we can already announce this is going to be an event of a high standard in terms of both quality and number of people attending, comparable to the 2019 exhibition.”
