Automechanika Frankfurt, the international trade fair for the automotive aftermarket, and RETRO Messen, which caters to classic and collectible car enthusiasts, have decided to work together in the classic cars segment in future.

Automechanika 2018 is expanding its program to include the business of classic and collectible cars of all ages. Whereas RETRO Messen’s events are a popular destination for the general public, Automechanika has been a key gathering place for automotive professionals since 1971. Now they will be getting together for the first time in the new Hall 12 to share ideas on a range of topics, including entering the classic car business with a focus on parts procurement, professional repairs, financing, insurance, and much more.

Some 5,000 exhibitors are expected at the 25th anniversary edition of Automechanika Frankfurt September 11-15, 2018. First stop: the new Hall 12, which is being officially opened for the occasion and which will be home to three themes: classic cars, REIFEN (dedicated to tire/wheel manufacturers and dealers), and car washing, which is being expanded to include vehicle care and vehicle reconditioning and is moving to Hall 12 from the outdoor exhibition area for the first time.
