Autopromotec starts its engines for the 2022 edition

May 5, 2021

A message from Autopromotec CEO, Renzo Servadei:

“Dear Exhibitors and Visitors,

You probably remember that a year ago, it was 2020, we decided to postpone Autopromotec to 2022 taking into account the economic and sanitary background. We took this decision having as a primary goal the protection of the almost 1700 participating companies.

Today, considering the progress of the vaccinations, with the activities that are gradually getting back to normal and a world economic growth estimated by the International Monetary Fund to be around 6%, we can ensure to our exhibitors, professional operators and to the many visitors that attended our show in the past editions, that Autopromotec will take place in Bologna from the 25 to the 28 May, 2022.

In 2022 we will probably be the first big European trade show since 2019, after this long-lasted stop for all the exhibitions. For this reason, we want to provide companies of the sector with a perfect showcase to present their important innovations to the global market of the aftermarket automotive. We are working to realize an innovative format that will allow us to make business to business meetings more engaging and interactive.

Many exhibitors already confirmed their participation, while the institutions will support our exhibition with a special focus. But Autopromotec 2022 will not be limited to business activities. In the heart of Motor Valley, Autopromotec will also be the occasion especially for our foreign visitors to discover an area rich in culture and services.

While waiting to finally meet again in Bologna from 25 to 28 May 2022, follow us on our web site and social media to be informed about all the activities that we’re planning, starting from next weeks.

Thank you for your attention, and I hope to see you again next year in Bologna.”

About Autopromotec:

Autopromotec is an international exhibition for automotive equipment and aftermarket products that takes place every two years at the Bologna Exhibition Centre. Founded in 1965, the event is organised by Promotec, a services company owned by AIRP – Associazione Italiana Ricostruttori Pneumatici (Italian Tyre Retreaders Association) and AICA – Associazione Italiana Costruttori Autoattrezzature (Italian Garage Equipment Manufacturers Association). Its unique formula is based on the specialisation, professionalism and quality of the exhibition, a true meeting point between manufacturers and users. The trade show – which includes over 580 product categories, covering all sub-sectors of the aftermarket – takes the form of a selection of specialised fairs, where visitors can easily plan personalised itineraries based on their professional interests. Through intensive promotional activities supported both at an institutional level and by trade associations, over the course of 28 editions Autopromotec has experienced a continued increase in international growth. Each edition of the event focuses great attention on training with AutopromotecEDU, a think tank dedicated to the analysis of the trade and to the most current and innovative topics regarding the automotive aftermarket.
