The 8th edition of Automechanika Johannesburg will take place at the JHB Expo Centre from 5-7 September 2023.

 

As the largest business platform for the automotive aftermarket on the African continent, it is the ideal meeting place for all stakeholders to gather, connect, and network.



It will bring together suppliers and buyers and will showcase rapidly changing technologies and processes. The event will be a host to multiple sector-related conferences, that will pave the way for the sector in the short to medium term, making it a must-attend event for those involved in the automotive aftermarket sector.   



The fundamental impact a trade show can have on the growth and development of an industry depends on the wide support from all market segments.


Through its portfolio of trade shows, Messe Frankfurt has always aimed at providing platforms where all market participants join to nurture, grow, and present their industry.


The Retail Motor Industry Organisation, (RMI), the largest organisation of employers and businesses in the South African retail motor industry – with almost 8 500 members including businesses across all sectors of the retail motor industry, including vehicle bodybuilding and component manufacturing,  is  a vital partner to ensure that our broad customer base understands and values the services and products being offered in the sector.  



Messe Frankfurt, the organizer of Automechanika, is pleased that the RMI and its various  associations will once again endorse the 8th edition in 2023.



Jakkie Olivier, CEO of RMI,  says it is an absolute honour to be once again part of a worldwide professional show that values the industry as much as RMI does. “We fully appreciate the importance of networking and the important role it plays in our business. We thus welcome the opportunity presented by Automechanika to interact face-to-face with other business owners and product suppliers.”



When a trade show is well supported by the industry, it shows the strength of the sector.  While individual companies may win or lose, the mantra of “stronger together” will always hold true, particularly at such a well-respected and representative show as this.  



Policymakers will take note as well as foreign and domestic investors, buyers, and everyone else who participates – or wants to participate – in this market.



An attractive display of an entire industry can also have many long-term effects, including appealing to the younger generation for career opportunities, which is key to ensuring the sustainability of the sector, and the broader economy as a whole.

 

“We are delighted to have the RMI as an endorsing partner for Automechanika 2023. This is a positive endorsement of the event and underscores our shared commitment to the growth and development of the automotive aftermarket” says Michael Dehn, Managing Director for Messe Frankfurt South Africa, organisers of Automechanika Johannesburg
