When the doors for Autopromotec 2019 opened at the end of May, the show organisers were already reporting a 4.4 per cent increase in the number of exhibitors. More than 1,650 companies exhibited at Autopromotec 2019. 43 per cent were non-Italian companies from 53 different countries. It has undoubtedly become a large and influential international show, but how will this work in a post-Brexit environment?
Autopromotec 2017 was clearly something of a record-breaker. Towards the end of the show which takes place in Bologna, Italy every two years, Tyres & Accessories interview Renzo Servadei, managing director of Promotec Spa, the company behind the exhibition to find out more about what the company has been doing and what it plans to do next.
The pre-catalogue of Autopromotec 2015, that will take place in Bologna, May 20 -24, is now available online. The exhibition organiser has previously stated that the 2015 edition will feature a “remarkable increase in exhibitors”, while the industrial vehicle service segment has been added to this business areas covered.
Autopromotec’s organisers have confirmed that the Industrial Vehicle Service (IVS) initiative, which is devoted to heavy vehicle maintenance and repair, will form part of the the 26th edition of the show that will take place in Bologna, 20 – 24 May 2015.
The initiative, which was first launched during Autopromotec 2011, focuses on trucks and features an exclusive guide reserved for all exhibiting companies involved with heavy truck maintenance and repair, along with a specific logo that identifies manufacturers of truck equipment, spare parts and components.
The organizers of Autopromotec 2015, the automotive equipment and aftermarket show to be held at the Bologna Trade Fair Center 20–24 May 2015, have reported a “remarkable” increase in exhibitor demand. According to the organizing company Promotec Spa, space in the halls devoted to lifting equipment, tyres and tyre equipment has already sold out, long before the official deadline of 31 October. Promotec also reports that there has been a “very positive” response from the hall devoted to spare parts.
