Autopromotec: exhibitors already signing up

Posted on March 25, 2014

The 2015 edition of the International Biennal Exhibition of Automotive Equipment and Aftermarket Products, also known as Autopromotec, is 15 months away, but organizers report a 25% increase in exhibit space requests versus this time in 2012.

The event will be held in Bologna, Italy, May 20-24, 2015.

Organizers say spare parts and car service areas, as well as areas devoted to tire and diagnostic equipment, are almost sold out. Several first-time exhibitors have expressed interest in the show, and exhibitors have been requesting larger spaces than past shows.

There are many factors behind the growth, says Renzo Servadei, Autopromotec managing director.

“First off, many companies are export oriented, and sell over 80% of their products outside their borders, facing the strong economic growth of low-cost producing countries that come to Europe to acquire cutting-edge technologies. Secondly, technology innovation is taking fast lane, fueled by regulations, environmental issues and market trends.”
