Autopromotec wins best international fair 2019
Autopromtec’s organisers recently flew to Lisbon to receive the award for the best fair international 2019 ahead of the International Motor Show in Geneva, Motortec Automechanika Madrid and the IAA in Frankfurt. The award was given by the Portuguese Automotive Magazine based on a survey conducted by interviewing exhibitors who participated in various European fairs.
The criteria used by the magazine to choose the winner was based on the cost of participation, the number of visitors to the event, the size of the booths, accessibility, cleanliness, professionalism of the staff and the presence of adequate infrastructure to welcome exhibitors both within the fairgrounds and in the city.
“According to our research, the organisers of Autopromotec were able to offer excellent conditions to both exhibitors and visitors, meeting all their needs”, explained Eduardo Gaspar, editor of Automotive Magazine, “and that’s why we chose it as the best trade show of the year”.
“I am very pleased to have received this award because it shows how the commitment and professionalism that the Autopromotec team puts into organising the fair every time is appreciated by exhibitors and visitors”, commented Renzo Servadei, CEO of Autopromotec. “We are already at work on the 2021 edition, adding a number of new developments related to trends that are affecting the automotive sector”.
The award ceremony was held at the Cidade do Futebol, home of the Portuguese national football team.
The 28th edition of Autopromotec saw 1,676 companies chose the event as a showcase to present their products and services, an increase of 4.4 per cent compared to the previous edition in 2017. Of these, the share of foreign companies present was 43 per cent. The trade fair comprises 17 halls and 5 outdoor areas for a total exhibition space of 162,000m2. It attracted 119,108 professional operators, a 4.85 per cent increase over 2017.
