About the event

Messe Frankfurt Exhibition GmbH has announced new changes to Automechanika Frankfurt. The 2021 edition will take place at Messe Frankfurt in Frankfurt, Germany from September 14th until September 16th. What’s new is that the hybrid edition introduces an improved digital format with ‘Digital Plus’ format. Those visitors and exhibitors unable to attend in person will have access to live streaming of product presentations and networking opportunities.

COVID-19 has made it hard to travel still and there’s a lot of uncertainty right now. That’s why organisers are keeping the in-person aspects of the show to a minimum. The exhibition grounds will feature all protective and safety measures in place. Plans are for next edition (September 13th – September 17th, 2022) to return to its traditional physical format, because live exhibitions are incredibly important.
