For the next Automechanika Frankfurt, which takes place from September 11-15, 2018, car wash exhibitors will be moving into state-of-the-art Hall 12, the newest exhibition hall on the Frankfurt exhibition grounds. Currently under construction, it will be ready for occupation in time for the show, featuring facilities for conducting live car wash demonstrations.

Starting in 2018, not only will leading car wash equipment manufacturers be exhibiting there, but they will be joined by exhibitors from the areas of vehicle care and reconditioning in the “Car Wash, Care & Reconditioning” product group.

The new Hall 12 allows organizers to acquiesce to a longstanding request from exhibitors: to bring together in one location vendors from the car wash, vehicle care, and vehicle reconditioning segments.

Otto Christ, chairman of Otto Christ AG said, “Having exhibited at Automechanika in the open air for decades, we have experienced all kinds of weather: pouring rain, thunderstorms, snow, ice, and even extreme heat. For many years, we had been proposing that the open air exhibition area be moved indoors.” This will now happen for the 2018 event.
