BOLOGNA, Italy – Organizers for the Autopromotec in Bologna, Italy, have unveiled the floor plan for the 26th edition. A new, improved exhibition layout has been created for optimized visitor experience.
The 26th Autopromotec, the biennial exhibition of automotive equipment and aftermarket products, is drawing close and is expected to be the most complete, specialized and internationally oriented edition ever, event organizers say.
Promotec, the company organizing the show, which will be held May 20-24, 2015, at the Bologna Trade Fair Center, unveiled the new floor plan, which, based on an increase in exhibitors (so far more than 10 percent) over the 2013 edition, has been restyled to optimize visitor experience. The show will confirm its regular, established product sectors, but with a new space distribution, thus maintaining the strong “show-within-the-show” orientation that allows visitors to plan their visit according to their professional interests.
The new floor plan in detail
The historical product halls that are already sold out, namely the ones devoted to lifting equipment, tire and tire equipment, will be the same as in the previous edition: halls 29 (lifting equipment), 19, 20 and 22 (tires and tire equipment). Regarding the latter, TPMS innovations will be under the spotlight, in terms of products and diagnostic/reset tools.
The spare parts sector, a regular presence over the past five editions, which has historically been able to draw huge crowds, has been recording positive growth and will occupy halls 16, 18, 21 and part of 15; it will host many longtime regular exhibitors and will welcome new industry-leading companies.
The Diagnostic Hub, a very important area reserved for producers of diagnostic tools, will be further expanded through the addition of new sector players, and will keep playing a leading role in halls 14 and 15, where it was met with tremendous success in 2013.
Major success also seems to lie ahead for the Filling Station Equipment initiative, featuring the most renowned companies in the service station and car wash sectors, which will be hosted in External Area 48 and adjacent hall 25, to have all products and services revolving around car care and car wash gathered under one roof.
Hall 30, which, in 2013, hosted AutopromotecEDU – the arena for in-depth discussions on current issues facing the automotive aftermarket – will be used as an exhibition hall at Autopromotec 2015, and together with hall 26, will host car and body repair equipment and products. Finally, hall 36, which has always been devoted to automotive equipment, will now be exclusively reserved for multifunction equipment and tools, including compressors.
In addition to 13 indoor halls, the showground also will include three outdoor areas: external area 44 will be home to Industrial Vehicles Service, the initiative devoted to commercial and industrial vehicles; area 45 will be reserved for roadside assistance equipment, and area 48 will host service station equipment.
