Automechanika Frankfurt Postponed To 2021

Automechanika Frankfurt Postponed To 2021

The event then will resume its biennial rotation.

Due to difficult conditions resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic and measures taken to stem its spread, including event bans and travel restrictions that are regularly being extended, Messe Frankfurt and its customers, partners and supporting associations have agreed to postpone the Automechanika Frankfurt event that originally was scheduled to take place Sept. 8-12, 2020.

Automechanika Frankfurt is being postponed until Sept. 14-18, 2021, in response to local and global measures implemented to stop the spread of COVID-19.

“It simply would not have been possible for many of the exhibitors and visitors from over 180 countries to take part in the event under the conditions currently prevailing or those expected at that time,” event organizers said.

In agreement with exhibitors, representatives from industry, workshops and retail, associations and partners, Messe Frankfurt has rescheduled the event for autumn 2021.

Automechanika Frankfurt then will resume its biennial rotation – the event will now be taking place in odd-numbered years.

“Our top priority is ensuring the health and safety of everyone – exhibitors and visitors alike – taking part in the event,” said Detlef Braun, member of the executive board of Messe Frankfurt. “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.”

A number of online events are planned for this autumn that focus on training and professional development for German workshops in particular. Automechanika said it is collaborating with various trade media organizations, influencers, multipliers and associations to plan the events.
