Automechanika and IBIS enter cooperation
The IBIS (International Bodyshop Industry Symposium) global conferencing platform and the international Automechanika trade fair brands are coordinating their schedule, meaning the upcoming Automechanika fairs in Shanghai and Frankfurt will each feature an IBIS regional event.
Michael Johannes, vice president Mobility & Logistics at Messe Frankfurt: “We are delighted that we can offer our trade fair guests such a prestigious conference focused on paint and bodywork, and I am certain that this will create valuable synergies for conference and trade fair visitors in Shanghai and Frankfurt.”
IBIS conferences have been bringing international collision industry leaders together since 2001 to network and discuss the latest trends. IBIS regional events have already been held in Brazil, San Diego, Dubai, Istanbul and Johannesburg. Now it will have two brand new venues at the Automechanika fairs in Shanghai from 3 to 6 December 2019 and in Frankfurt from 8 to 12 September 2020.
Jason Moseley, chief executive officer of IBIS: “We are delighted to leverage the Automechanika global footprint for some of our regional events. These events will bring a more targeted and localised message to those markets, as an off-shoot of our industry leading annual IBIS Global Summit.”
