More than 80 exhibitors from 15 countries are expected to take part in Automechanika Jeddah 2019.
The event will take place at Jeddah Hilton Hotel on February 26 and 27, and it will showcase the latest trends and innovations from some of the biggest brands in the global automotive aftermarket and services industry.
The Automechanika brand’s sub-licensor Messe Frankfurt Middle East and Saudi-based organiser ACE Group also announced extended timings for the biennial event. The show will be held from 10am to 9pm on both days, and entry for trade buyers and auto professionals is free of charge.
“The extended timings will ensure visitors can maximise the time to meet more exhibitors over these two days,” said Nathan Lloyd, chief operating officer of Messe Frankfurt Middle East. “There is plenty to look forward to, including innovative product launches, industry workshops, seminars, and of course valuable business networking.”
Automechanika Jeddah 2019 will return with its Truck Competence initiative for products dedicated to the entire value chain in the truck sector, while the global presence is underlined by five country pavilions from Turkey, Korea, China, Taiwan and Hong Kong.
“Also returning is Automechanika Academy in partnership with Autolink and Institute of the Motor Industry, where C-Level Recruitment in the auto industry and developments in Electric and Hybrid Vehicles are among the key topics discussed by industry experts,” a press release stated.
