Increase in exhibition space at Autopromotec 2019


With a little over a year to go until the 28th edition of Autopromotec, the international exhibition of automotive equipment and aftermarket products, which takes place at Bologna Exhibition Centre May 22-29 2019 the organisers are announcing several new developments reflecting the innovative spirit and unstoppable growth the fair has witnessed in recent years.

First off, the revamping of exhibition space at BolognaFiere will lead to a more rational layout of spaces and an additional increase in the exhibition space..

There has also been a makeover of the image to identify all communication tools of the fair. This new image reflects a spirit that embraces the future of technology.

Lastly, the preliminary data regarding pre-registrations, numbers regarded very positively by the organisers, confirm the centrality of Autopromotec in the automotive after-sales market on a global level.

The 2019 edition of Autopromotec will have 162,000 square metres of exhibition space, 4,000 square metres more that 2017, with over 580 product categories covering all sub-sectors of the aftermarket.

Halls 29 and 30 will once again become “the home of diagnosis and equipment” with leading international companies in the industry already confirming their participation.

Hall 14,which hosted the diagnostics sector in 2017, will now be dedicated to lifting and garage equipment and tyre servicing, completing an important product area totally focused on the sector (Halls, 14, 15, 19, 20 and 22) with exhibitors including tyre and rim producers and dealers, servicing equipment, new and retreaded tyres and related accessories and services, lifting and garage equipment. This space has no equals on an international scale in terms of exhibition space and number of companies.

Thanks to the new layout, Autopromotec will see one of its distinctive features, that of being a “fair within a fair”, being further strengthened. This is a unique aspect that allows visitors to plan their visit based on specific professional interests. The positioning of other sectors will see no changes.Those sectors range from spare parts, body repair, equipment and products for service stations and car washes, right through to polyfunctional equipment, consolidating Autopromotec as the main international event with the clout to bring together all product supply chains of the automotive aftermarket.
