Today, more than ever before, Automechanika is an important platform for innovations and future-oriented solutions and trends and, for the first time, will present the after-sales world of the future as ‘Tomorrow’s Service & Mobility’ in the ‘Festhalle’ of Frankfurt Fair and Exhibition Centre. Accordingly, visitors will have the chance to see the workshop of the future, as well as products and solutions for the connectivity, alternative drive trains, automated driving and mobility services segments.
As in the past, the subject of basic and advanced training will be one of the most important focal points in 2016. Aimed primarily at workshop employees and proprietors, the range of free certified workshops and training courses, some of them in English, will also be expanded. Automechanika Frankfurt also gives companies and potential trainees the opportunity to meet at the fair. Additionally, the Automechanika Academy is a unique information platform with numerous lectures by renowned experts.
The Automechanika Innovation Award honours the most innovative products and solutions in nine categories with a tenth being added in 2016: the ‘Green Award’, which goes to the most sustainable product among all those entered. All award-winning products will be on show at a special exhibition throughout Automechanika Frankfurt.
