Automechanika Dubai 2013 Reports Double-Digit Growth In Attendance

Automechanika Dubai took place June 11-13 at the Dubai International Convention and Exhibition Centre in the United Arab Emirates.


DUBAI – Automechanika Dubai 2013 has reported another record-breaking edition, having welcomed more than 24,000 trade visitors from 130 countries, a 16 percent increase from 2012 event numbers.
Event organizers reported that the rapidly growing trade show was 25 percent larger in terms of net space occupied, and featured 1,482 exhibitors from 58 countries.
“Driven by the strength of the Automechanika brand worldwide, the Dubai edition has firmly established itself as a must-attend event for anyone interested in doing business within the automotive aftermarket in the Middle East and wider region,” said Ahmed Pauwels, CEO, Epoc Messe Frankfurt, organizer of Automechanika Dubai.
Saudi Arabia, Iran, Pakistan and India were the largest visiting countries after the UAE to Automechanika Dubai 2013. With approximately 130 visiting countries, the show’s reach is unparalleled for the automotive aftermarket, organizers say.
Automechanika Dubai’s ongoing growth is also reflected in the consistent development of the automotive aftermarket trade in the region. For the first time in its history, Dubai’s auto parts and accessories trade reached the $10 billion mark in 2012. As such, Dubai is considered not only a regional, but an international hub for the automotive aftermarket trade, strongly supported by its world-class storage and logistics services, event organizers stated.
2013 marked the 11th edition of Automechanika Dubai – the Middle East’s leading international trade fair for the automotive industry, targeting trade visitors from Western Asia, Eastern Europe, the CIS and Africa. The show featured 23 official country pavilions with debuts from the Netherlands and Indonesia and also enjoyed the support of 37 international trade associations. The show also welcomed first time exhibitors from Macedonia and Malta and had 12 percent more UAE exhibitors than the previous edition.
Automechanika Dubai is divided into four distinct product sections for the convenience of visitors and exhibitors. These are Parts & Systems, which take up approximately 69 percent of the exhibition, Tires & Batteries, occupying about 16 percent of the show floor, and Repair & Maintenance and Accessories & Tuning, which occupy a further 14 percent between them.
The next edition of Automechanika Dubai will take place from June 3-5, 2014, at the Dubai International Convention and Exhibition Centre.
