Aug 27, 2015

PAACE Automechanika Mexico City moves to new dates

Two prestigious institutions are merging to create the most important exhibition for auto parts in Mexico with a mutual objective to promote the industry on a global level to attract new investments in line with the significant investment that the automotive industry is realizing in Mexico, incorporating a major added value domestically and regionally.

In an effort to better serve the market, Industria Nacional de Autopartes (INA) and Messe Frankfurt have joined forces to produce one cohesive event serving the entire automotive OEM and aftermarket which will increase the number of exhibiting companies and visitors. This venture will showcase a new model of exhibition, communication and integration with buyers, distributors, retailers, mechanic shops and students. Broad based industry support across all segments is the driving force for the future growth and success of the show.

PAACE Automechanika Mexico City is currently produced in partnership with Messe Frankfurt, and US based associations; APRA, MEMA and SEMA. This event has served the Mexican automotive aftermarket for 17 years. Since 2008, ExpoINA has been the leading exhibition servicing the Tier 1 and Tier 2 OEM suppliers and aftermarket companies in the Mexican automotive aftermarket.

New Dates bring Combined Synergies
PAACE Automechanika Mexico City was previously positioned in July. However, with the merger of the two individual events, the new combined tradeshow and seminar program will be held April 13 – 15, 2016. The new dates will better accommodate the buying cycles of many automotive industry segments. It will also allow for a greater number of automotive organizations to participate. The event will remain at Centro Banamex, expanding into more halls to accommodate the additional exhibiting companies interested in showcasing their product offerings.

"The cooperation between the partners of PAACE Automechanika Mexico City and ExpoINA is a vision fulfilled to bring the strength and success of the Automechanika brand and INA’s strong commitment to the evolving automotive market in Mexico and Central America," stated Dennis Smith, President, Messe Frankfurt Inc. and Oscar Albin, President of the Industria Nacional de Autopartes, AC.

The next trade show will be held April 13 – 15, 2016. Industry leaders are already in support and the event expects more than 600 exhibitors from around the globe to present their latest products and services on 30,000 square meters of gross exhibition space. Supplying an extensive horizontal and vertical product spectrum, this new venture will be the largest and most important event for the automotive aftermarket.
