What are the current issues, trends in the aftermarket? What are the future challenges for repair shops?
2021’s Automechanika Frankfurt Digital Plus will be held in a more compact form, with a different model adapted to suit the prevailing situation, and also with a wide range of online products and services.
There’s a strong demand for personal interaction and the aftermarket sector will finally be meeting face-to-face again at Automechanika.
Those not going to Frankfurt can take part in their wide-ranging complimentary program.
Thanks to new online features, they’ll be providing additional options for presentation, networking and for a wide international reach.
Automechanika takes place at the same time as Hypermotion—the tradeshow of the logistics industry.
This will give the automotive sector valuable inspiration with regard to resilient supply chains, fleet management and IoT systems.
As an innovation showcase, training centre and test lab for car dealerships and repair shops, the Future Repair Shop 4.0 will be working with the Institute for the Automotive Industry (IfA), demonstrating tomorrow’s technologies, processes and business models at the trade show.
Digitization and new technical developments pose new challenges for repair shops and hands-on workshops will be held at the fair. There will also be several live accident repair demonstrations, hosted by FabuCar and the Car Doctors.
The Automechanika Academy will be running a wide-ranging program—recent developments on the topics of Tomorrow’s Service & Mobility, Electromobility, 3D Printing and Car Wash will be presented.
In times of climate change and environmental protection, the topic of a circular economy and remanufacturing is becoming increasingly relevant.
The first Automechanika Remanufacturing Day will be held on September 15, in cooperation with APRA (the Automotive Parts Remanufacturers’ Association).
On this occasion, several professionals will be presenting the topic from various angles, with opportunities for questions.
Hypermotion Frankfurt is all about smart solutions in mobility and logistics, with numerous conferences in addition to the traditional exhibition.
RepairFix, a start-up company, is set to present a software application that smartly networks drivers, fleet managers and repair shops in dealing with damage and servicing
