Automechanika Birmingham reports record registrations

Automechanika Birmingham has reported unprecedented visitor demand as registration figures are already 168% higher among bodyshops and repairers than the same period before the event was last held in 2019.

In fact, all visitor metrics for the event, which takes place from 6-8 June at the National Exhibition Centre in Birmingham, are currently surpassing figures set at the same point before the show was last held in the UK four years ago, with registrations from garages, autocentres, and MOT centres 112% higher.

The free event offers aftermarket professionals the opportunity to source the latest tools, technology and innovations, and network with the UK market to share challenges and insight.

Alex Jones, marketing director at event organiser Messe Frankfurt UK, said: “It’s fantastic to see such a large cohort of the automotive aftermarket embracing the opportunity to share knowledge and find solutions to the immediate challenges, and horizon gaze to maximise the opportunities for businesses in the future, by registering to attend Automechanika Birmingham so early in the year.

“The entire organising team is delighted to see such a strong take-up – these figures have surpassed our expectations. We’re looking forward to welcoming so many aftermarket professionals from across the garage and vehicle repair industry, plus automotive enthusiasts, to the NEC in Birmingham this June. With so much on offer it’s no wonder that the exhibitor line up is the strongest it’s been since launch and the visitor registrations are at record breaking levels.”

Boosted by a refreshed Automotive Supply Chain Forum event held within Automechanika Birmingham, visitor registrations for supply chain stakeholders are almost 300% higher than expectations set by event team Messe Frankfurt UK.

Features at the show include a Workshop Training Hub delivering technical seminars on engine fault diagnostics, MOT, diesel, Advanced Driver-Assistance Systems (ADAS), while there will also be a new Electric Vehicles (EV) Training Hub.
