Autopromotec 2013 on horizon

Autopromotec, the international automotive equipment and aftermarket products trade fair gets underway in Bologna, Italy on Wednesday.

In spite of current market difficulties, Autopromotec 2013 promises to be extremely vibrant with a record-breaking number of exhibitors and the largest exhibition space ever, respectively: 1,512 exhibitors from 52 countries covering a total exhibition area of 156,000 square meters (20,000 of which outdoors).

Once again Autopromotec 2013 highlights the strong international character that, over the last few years, has distinguished it as an important global meeting point for all sector operators, with an 39 per cent of the exhibitors coming from all over the world (a total of 584 companies), with Germany, China, United States, France and Spain the most represented countries.

This figure is even more significant if one considers that there is a +7.5 per cent of foreign exhibitors compared to the previous 2011 edition and that there is every reason to believe that this year the record in terms of number of foreign visitors will also be broken.
