After extensive feedback from exhibitors and visitors, the organisers will deliver a raft of new and exciting features for the 2018 event confirming Automechanika Birmingham 2018 as the UK’s most valuable meeting place for the automotive industry.
More Quality Meetings
Newly introduced in time for 2018 is the event's facilitated meetings programme which will match the needs of visitors with the capabilities of suppliers and help to arrange business meetings on stands.
Automechanika Birmingham will extend the opening hours on one day of the exhibition to allow more time for networking. In an informal atmosphere, Automechanika Birmingham will welcome visitors to stay longer and allow exhibitors to benefit from further networking with new and existing customers on their stands.
