The Company

Mobility & Logistics

Against a background of increasing digitalisation and connectivity, e.g., in automobiles and logistic networks, Messe Frankfurt is investing in several new fairs and congresses for the automotive and transport & logistics sectors. At these events, customers can rely on the extensive market knowledge the company has built up through the internationalisation of the Automechanika trade fair. Behind the brand is a worldwide network of 120 associations and representatives for 160 countries. Today, Messe Frankfurt holds 15 Automechanika fairs in cooperation with its subsidiaries in 14 countries.

With the Automotive Engineering Show in India, the automotive fairs of Messe Frankfurt cover the entire value chain from the supplying and parts industry, via manufacturing, to the complete thematic constellation of repairs, management, digital solutions, automobile washing and care, services and vehicle reconditioning.

Additionally, Messe Frankfurt was holding a series of different conferences at home and abroad for the first time in 2015. In Frankfurt, for example, it organises the ZEIT Logistics & Mobility Conference and, in cooperation with the Huss Verlag publishing company, a conference on supply chain management. In Russia, the company promotes communication and cooperation between automobile manufacturers and the major European automotive suppliers by inviting them to discussion forums, inter alia, in Tatarstan and Moscow. By way of contrast, a conference in Dubai focuses on customising. Also new in the portfolio is the roadshow Connected Mobility which takes place on three continents und discusses the digital trends in the automobile industry.

Messe Frankfurt is currently acquiring new B2C events in several countries worldwide including Russia, South Africa and Turkey. With the world’s second biggest truck fair, the Comtrans in Moscow, a joint venture with the ITE Group, Messe Frankfurt is significantly expanding its expertise in the commercial-vehicle sector. Previously, the segments covered focused mainly on the parts, accessories, workshop and service business, which is underscored clearly by the ‘Truck Competence’ label marking appropriate exhibitors at Automechanika fairs around the globe.

Eurasia Moto Bike in Istanbul and the South African Festival of Motoring are other events that round off the portfolio of events in the Mobility & Logistics Business Unit.
