Focus points represent today’s automotive challenges and opportunities
More than ever, the emphasis is on innovations and trends, and they can be found everywhere, not only at vendor booths. Innovative approaches to linked cars and climate-neutral transportation are shown in the “Innovation4Mobility” expo. The items recognized by the Automechanika Innovation Awards are another highlight. This year, more items than ever before have been nominated.
Another area that requires effort is attracting young people and skills of all ages to the automobile aftermarket. Because of this, the fair’s administration has prioritized hiring, professional growth, and training.
Plans call for special events for students and newcomers as well as courses on accident repair management and professional development. At the exhibition, job and career prospects will be highlighted by the industry’s brand-new “Talents4AA” campaign.
Another area of emphasis is sustainability. ‘Remanufacturing Day’ will be held at Automechanika for the second time. On September 14, specialists will highlight the most recent advancements in remanufacturing and the circular economy at an event organized in partnership with the worldwide Automotive Parts Remanufacturers Association (APRA).
The subject will also be covered in the exhibit halls, where exhibitors selling goods and services related to remanufacturing will be identified by a distinctive green remanufacturing emblem.
FIA Smart Driving Challenge
Prior to the trade show, Automechanika Frankfurt 2022 sponsors a sub-event called the FIA Smart Driving Challenge where the goal is to drive as sustainably and sparingly as possible. Anyone with a smartphone who drives is welcome to take part. The objective is to rack up as many points as you can while driving wisely and sustainably; the victor will be recognized at Automechanika Frankfurt 2022.
Nine Automechanika events have been scheduled for 2022, with four in June alone.
