Automechanika Birmingham takes titles

Automechanika Birmingham has won two industry awards for the successful launch of its UK exhibition for the automotive aftermarket and supply chain in 2016.

The Automechanika Birmingham team won the two accolades – for expanding the Automechanika brand and for the best UK trade show newcomer – at the 11th Exhibition News Awards. Automechanika Birmingham was the only event to win two awards.

The 2016 show was sold out in six months before the doors opened and welcomed over 12,000 visitors through the doors to see over 550 exhibitors from the aftermarket and supply chain.

Simon Albert, event director said, ‘The awards are a testament to the hard work and support of our exhibitors, visitors, partners, and the event team. We’d like to thank everyone involved making Automechanika Birmingham happen last year but now our focus is fully on 2017 where we have grown from three to five halls with over 800 exhibitors, introduced a new dedicated supply chain zone, new live demonstrations, more expert speakers and longer opening times. We look forward to welcoming everyone from 6-8 June 2017 at the NEC.’
