Autopromotec 2025 embraces sustainability, aims for UNI ISO 20121 standard

Set for May 21-24, 2025, at the Bologna Exhibition Centre, the organizers have initiated the process to achieve certification for sustainability management systems for events, specifically targeting the UNI ISO 20121 standard, confirms Autopromotec CEO Renzo Servadei.

Autopromotec, the global automotive equipment and aftermarket exhibition, is set to mark its 30th biennial edition with an increased focus on sustainability, show organizers announced.

Set for May 21-24, 2025, at the Bologna Exhibition Centre, the organizers have initiated the process to achieve certification for sustainability management systems for events, specifically targeting the UNI ISO 20121 standard, confirms Autopromotec CEO Renzo Servadei.

“The process we undertook to optimize the flow of entries to Autopromotec 2025 was a complex but necessary one,” said Servadei. “The new registration procedure allows us to confirm our commitment to all-round process sustainability. Nowadays, industry, the economy and the labor market must be rethought from a sustainable perspective.”

A key part of this initiative is the introduction of a fully digital registration procedure. This system allows exhibiting companies to manage their participation directly through the Autopromotec website. The new registration process, which opened on May 20, has already seen a positive response, confirming the growth trend anticipated during the pre-registration phase, organizers say.

Sustainability will be a central theme at Autopromotec 2025, alongside other major trends such as connectivity and artificial intelligence. These themes are set to dominate the automotive aftermarket and will be extensively featured at the exhibition.

The focus on sustainability “represents a commitment and a concrete goal for us, of which the digitization of the registration procedure is only a starting point,” Servadei said. “This means not only less paper waste, but also a more efficient and faster experience for our exhibitors, who can actually enjoy the trade fair at the click of a button.”

Autopromotec will showcase new technologies with a growing emphasis on software, artificial intelligence applications in sensor technology, and mechanical and electronic engineering. Traditional product sectors, including automotive equipment, tires, spare parts, lubricants, service networks and car services, will also be well-represented.
