The event is renowned as the largest international trade show for the automotive aftermarket, OE manufacturing and service industry in Latin America.

The automotive industry is gearing up for the 25th anniversary edition of INA PAACE Automechanika Mexico, slated to take place from July 12-14, 2023, at the Centro Citibanamex in Mexico City.

The event is renowned as the largest international trade show for the automotive aftermarket, OE manufacturing and service industry in Latin America.

“We are thrilled to be celebrating 25 years in the Latin American automotive aftermarket and are looking forward to the next 25,” said Bridget Ferris, Vice President, Mobility & Logistics, Messe Frankfurt Inc. The event promises new initiatives and features aiming to solidify its position as a leading platform connecting automotive suppliers, distributors, shops and technicians.

“With an estimated 400-plus exhibiting companies, international media outlets and pavilions representing Germany, Spain, Taiwan, Argentina, Brazil and the USA to name a few, both visitors and exhibitors alike gain exposure to new opportunities to market their businesses,” show organizers said in a statement. “The events bring together product innovators, industry associations and institutions to deliver a robust offering of networking and educational opportunities.”

What to expect at the event
One of the highlights is the new Collision Pavilion, hosted by the International Bodyshop Industry Symposium (IBIS). The pavilion will host exhibitors focusing on products and services for the collision and repair industry. Moreover, IBIS will be hosting their annual Summit, IBIS LATAM, on July 13.

Also on the show floor, Delivery Competence, a new segment dedicated to motorbikes, motorcycles, and small delivery vehicles, will feature a variety of exhibits and showcases.

In addition to the exhibits, INA PAACE Automechanika Mexico is also offering a diverse educational program.
