Automechanika Buenos Aires rescheduled

15 Sep 2020

Due to the reality imposed by the COVID-19 pandemic, the organizers have postponed the region’s largest automotive exhibition until September 2022.

Automechanika Buenos Aires, new date

In accordance with the health regulations, recommendations and requirements related to the ongoing coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2) pandemic issued by the national government and the City of Buenos Aires, we as organizers of Automechanika Buenos Aires are forced to postpone Argentina’s leading international trade fair for the automotive service industry.

The event, originally scheduled for November this year, will be held from September 14 to 17, 2022 at La Rural Trade Center.

With this difficult decision, Messe Frankfurt Argentina and the Association of Argentine Components Manufacturers (AFAC) seek to support the sector through these challenging times, while giving priority to the well-being of the exhibiting companies and professional visitors that will attend our event.

Through ten uninterrupted editions in twenty years, Automechanika Buenos Aires has become one of the most anticipated meetings for the automotive and spare parts sector in South America. The trade fair is a fundamental platform for promoting businesses and strengthening the industry by sharing cutting-edge knowledge, technological innovations and valuable professional contacts.

In the coming months and prior to the face-to-face exhibition, we will launch a series of online initiatives to connect companies, professionals and associations with each other; to foster debate on the current economic situation; and to consolidate, through mutual collaboration, the automotive and spare parts industry as a key player in the economic recovery.

We are certain that exhibitions like Automechanika Buenos Aires will be fundamental in the post-pandemic scenario—to rebuild and gain access to new markets, generate business opportunities, and share the know-how and experiences required to deal with a world in constant transformation.

As organizers, we warmly thank all the companies, industry chambers, sponsoring institutions and specialized media for their support, and we invite you all to continue building, together, the region’s largest event for the automotive service industry.
