NEXT AUTOMECHANIKA UK ’70 PERCENT RESERVED’

Space at next year’s edition of Automechanika Birmingham is already 70 per cent reserved, according to show organisers.

The show, which finished yesterday, was deemed to have been a success, with the number of visitors meeting expectations. A visitor feedback survey was also conducted at the show, the results of which will be available in due course.

“I’m delighted with the visitor numbers – absolutely over the moon” said Simon Albert, Show Director. “We were always confident that this would be a success because the whole industry jumped at the chance to be part of the exhibition.”

“We had over 14,000 pre-registrations and we had quite a sharp increase on the Friday and the Monday before the show”.

Next year’s edition will take place in halls 17-20 of the NEC, with potential exhibitors offered an ‘earlybird’ discount before this week’s show had even started.

  1. I don’t know about anyone else, but I found the show pretty poor. No floor plan just a list of suppliers, badly laid out, suppliers of similar product not grouped together, a lot of key suppliers to the after market not there. I was hoping for so much more and for me at least it just didn’t “do it”. I shall look at the suppliers next year and unless the quality improves greatly I’ll probably be giving it a miss. Are Automechanika just charging too much per stand and it’s putting some suppliers off?

    1. …Our free unofficial show guide had colour-coded floor plans, exhibitor listings and featured stands in it. If you’d like a copy ahead of the show next time, just ask. GW.
