SMMT and Messe Frankfurt are launching Automechanika Birmingham in 2016. The first Automechanika Birmingham is set to take place at the NEC from 7 to 9 June 2016.
According to the partners, the launch of Automechanika Birmingham in the UK “reflects the vibrant state of automotive manufacturing in Britain – increasingly recognised as a centre of engineering excellence”. The decision to launch the show is also said to reflect the fact that vehicle production in the UK is set to reach all-time record levels in the next few years and the British supply chain is responding to the opportunity to expand. Recent figures show domestic suppliers increased sales to UK vehicle makers by 19 per cent last year. Significant potential still remains, however, with the scope for supplier growth valued at some £4 billion.
The show, which has been licensed to Forest Exhibitions Ltd. by Messe Frankfurt Exhibitions GmbH, is expected to play host to around 250 exhibiting companies and 5,000 trade visitors.
