In the heart of Mexico City, a roaring buzz of engines, clinking of tools and animated chatter of passionate automotive professionals awaits.
The 25th Anniversary edition of INA PAACE Automechanika Mexico, Latin America’s largest international trade show for the automotive aftermarket, OE manufacturing and service industry, is set to take place at Centro Citibanamex from July 12-14, 2023.
As the show celebrates its silver jubilee, Bridget Ferris, Vice President, Mobility & Logistics, Messe Frankfurt Inc., extends an enthusiastic invitation to the industry.
“We are thrilled to be celebrating 25 years in the Latin American automotive aftermarket and are looking forward to the next 25,” says Ferris, Vice President, Mobility & Logistics, Messe Frankfurt Inc. “We invite the industry to come and join us as we launch new features and initiatives this year to continue serving as the premier platform for automotive suppliers, distributors, shops and techs to connect.”
A showcase of 10 diverse product categories covering every market segment is scheduled. As anticipation mounts, so does the number of exhibitors, with more than 400 companies expected to display their innovations. The event will serve as a global crossroads, featuring pavilions from Germany, Spain, Taiwan, Argentina, Brazil and the USA and elsewhere.
Attendees can look forward to the all-new Collision Pavilion, hosted by IBIS, the International Bodyshop Industry Symposium. Set to offer a variety of seminars and exhibits, it is specifically designed to cover the latest news and trends for the collision and repair industry.
Adding another layer of excitement, the first-ever “Last Mile Latin American Summit” will focus on the last-mile delivery market, an innovative development in the lineup. It will coincide with the launch of “Delivery Competence,” a special feature area centered on last-mile delivery companies and e-commerce. The section will include aftermarket products for small delivery vehicles, like vans and motor bikes, as well as Latin America’s largest online marketplace, Mercado Libre.
The event isn’t just about unveiling innovations. INA PAACE Automechanika Mexico takes education seriously. Attendees can expect a diverse educational program, ranging from the newly minted Future Forum for C-level executives to the popular Automechanika Academy for shop owners and technicians.
For the first time, an EV Park Area will be created, hosting electric vehicle training and showcasing electric vehicles. A new hands-on feature is the Scan Tool Diagnostics Area, which is designed to let visitors learn, experience and ask questions directly from Scan Tool companies. Both features promise to keep visitors on the cutting edge of the industry’s rapid evolution.
Further broadening the scope of its industry-leading discussions, the Future Forum will offer high-level insights for C-level executives. Topics include presentations from Chip Carlson from O’Reilly, Jason Moseley from IBIS, and speakers from eBay, Big Commerce, Jetz and Zacua.
Meanwhile, the Automechanika Academy will offer more than 60 sessions for owners and techs. The list of presenting companies includes Dacomsa, Snap-On, ZF, GMB, Alto Products and others.
