Understanding that nothing will ever replace face-to-face interaction, COVID-19 continues to negatively impact the global business industry and after thoughtful consideration of the current climate in Mexico, the organizers of INA PAACE Automechanika Mexico have made the decision to take the event completely digital. Originally slated to occur in-person in the city of San Luis Potosí, the dates of the show will remain, Dec. 1-3, 2021.
“Placing the health and safety of our exhibitors, visitors and staff is of the utmost importance and for that reason, we are moving the event from in-person to digital,” said Bridget Ferris, show director, INA PAACE Automechanika Mexico. “We understand and appreciate the responsibility that we have in serving the automotive aftermarket and we are excited to launch this dynamic event in a digital environment.”
With the aim to continue business networking through these unprecedented times, the 2021 edition was pre-planned as a hybrid model to support the international exhibitors facing travel restrictions. This factor created a smoother transition to a fully digital event.
Supplying an extensive horizontal and vertical product spectrum, and with the returning support of longstanding exhibitors, international and domestic participation, INA PAACE Automechanika Mexico will open with many of the same features found on the trade show floor. The digital platform will include a full display of exhibitor listings covering each of the product categories, automotive trainings, AI matchmaking and more.
In addition to the digital exhibit presentation, a comprehensive, industry-leading educational program will run alongside. Topics will range from new technology, diagnostics, repair and maintenance, to best business practices amidst a global crisis. Comprised of thought leaders and automotive experts, these interactive discussions will share insights on how to collaborate, connect and grow your business.
INA PAACE Automechanika Mexico represents Latin America’s largest international trade show for the automotive aftermarket, OE manufacturing and service industry and looks forward to maintaining the position where industry professionals can gather to exchange knowledge, new ideas, and do business – whether in-person and digitally.
“As the leading automotive event in Mexico, pursuing a fully digital event offers our exhibitors the opportunity to remain connected to the market and we are pleased at the enormous amount of support that we have received from the automotive aftermarket brands. We look forward to connecting them to the Latin American automotive community digitally this December,” said Oscar Albin, president of the National Autoparts Industry C.A.
