Automechanika Frankfurt postponed until 2021

Automechanika Frankfurt has become the latest victim of the disruption caused by the coronavirus pandemic sweeping the world.

Organisers of Europe’s biggest aftermarket trade fair have announced the postponement of this year’s event, which will now take place on 14-18 September 2021. Following this, the event will resume its biennial rotation, taking place in odd-numbered years. 

Detlef Braun, Member of the Executive Board of Messe Frankfurt, explains: “Our top priority is ensuring the health and safety of everyone – exhibitors and visitors alike – taking part in the event. With waves of the pandemic moving around the globe and many countries not expecting it to peak until the summer, I am certain that the decision to postpone Automechanika until September 2021 is the right one. Over the past two weeks in particular, we have been engaged in intensive discussions with our customers, partners and supporting associations, and they sent us a clear signal. By holding the event in 2021, we are responding to our customers’ wishes.”

While Germany has dealt with the pandemic better than most, as Automechanika Frankfurt being a truly international event, organisers felt it would be impossible for exhibitors and visitors to take part, especially with many businesses closed and only now planning to resume trading.

Automechanika Frankfurt joins the Geneva International Motor Show, North American International Motor Show, Goodwood Festival of Speed and the Mondial Paris as a casualty of the coronavirus pandemic in 2020. 

Organisers are, however, planning to hold a series of training events online during the autumn, focusing on professional development and technology for German workshops in particular.
