Autopromotec 2022

2020-08-20 18:34:45

Autopromotec, the most specialized international exhibition of automotive equipment and aftermarket products, announces today the postponement of the next edition, originally scheduled in Bologna on 26-29th May 2021, now rescheduled to 25-28th May, 2022.

In the heart of the Motor Valley, Autopromotec, an event that has gathered all aftermarket product groups for over 50 years, took the important decision after a deep analysis of the economic and sanitary framework on a global scale, having as its primary goal the protection of its almost 1700 exhibiting companies, with a share of 43% from abroad (data relevant to the 2019 edition), that traditionally choose it as a showcase for their products and services. The postponement to 2022, a year identified by many analysts as that of the economic recovery, will enable the exhibiting companies to invest their financial resources at a more appropriate moment, thus being able to maximize business opportunities, which has always been a strong point of the Bologna exhibition. Following the postponement, the show will now take place in even-numbered years.

“The Covid-19 pandemic continues to register high rates of contagion, and severe limitations to international travels persist”, says Renzo Servadei, Autopromotec CEO. “A proper planning on the part of all the players of the sector is crucial to create a high-level event, but the uncertainty related to the measures to deal with the sanitary crisis makes it difficult to national and international exhibitors and visitors to plan their business travels well in advance.”

“The Pre-registration forms received from exhibiting companies up until now, however, are consistent with those of the past editions”, Mr Servadei continues.  “In order to accompany the sector to 2022, Autopromotec is working on a digital project that, on May 2021, will support companies in view of the full restart of their activities, keeping them in touch with the global market.”

About Autopromotec:
Autopromotec is an international exhibition for automotive equipment and aftermarket products that takes place every two years at the Bologna Exhibition Centre. Founded in 1965, the event is organised by Promotec, a services company owned by AIRP - Associazione Italiana Ricostruttori Pneumatici (Italian Tyre Retreaders Association) and AICA - Associazione Italiana Costruttori Autoattrezzature (Italian Garage Equipment Manufacturers Association). Its unique formula is based on the specialisation, professionalism and quality of the exhibition, a true meeting point between manufacturers and users. The trade show - which includes over 580 product categories, covering all sub-sectors of the aftermarket - takes the form of a selection of specialised fairs, where visitors can easily plan personalised itineraries based on their professional interests.
