Automechanika Dubai reports record breaking attendance

Show reports 13 percent increase in visitors.

Christian Mack, area sales manager, Middle East & Far East for SM Moterenteile, commented: “We have met trade visitors from Iran and Pakistan and made very concrete new contacts.”

Furthermore, Dmitriy Puzanov, sales manager of export sales at WESTA ISIC, said: “We’ve had customers from all over the world.”

Automechanika Dubai’s ongoing growth is also reflected in the consistent development of the automotive aftermarket trade in the region. For the first time in its history, Dubai’s auto parts and accessories trade reached the $10 billion mark in 2012, the organization reported. As such, Dubai is considered not only a regional, but an international hub for the automotive aftermarket trade, strongly supported by its world class storage and logistics services. 2013 marked the 11th edition of Automechanika Dubai – the Middle East’s international trade fair for the automotive industry targeting trade visitors from Western Asia, Eastern Europe, the CIS and Africa. The show featured 23 official country pavilions with debuts from Netherlands and Indonesia and also enjoyed the support of 37 international trade associations. The show also welcomed first-time exhibitors from Macedonia and Malta and had 12 percent more UAE exhibitors than the previous edition.

Automechanika Dubai is divided into four distinct product sections for the convenience of visitors and exhibitors. These are parts and systems which take up approximately 69 percent of the exhibition; tires and batteries, occupying about 16 percent of the show floor; and repair, maintenance, accessories and tuning which occupy a further 14 percent.

The next edition of Automechanika Dubai will take place from June 3 to 5, 2014 at the Dubai International Convention and Exhibition Centre. For information, visit:
