Dubai is certainly one of the most international cities in the world, and it has a busy schedule of international trade shows. But there’s a special place for Automechanika Dubai, which always seems to bring in visitors from far and wide – not only from the greater Middle East, but also Europe, Africa and Asia.
For fleet managers it’s a chance to survey an impossibly large selection of after-market products, from major international brands that supply to OEMs, down to smaller companies that operate in innovative niches. Whatever the segment, there’s always some new product that promises to solve one or more of your pressing problems, or else provide a more cost-efficient alternative to one of your existing solutions.
With the show being held June 2-4 at the Dubai International Convention & Exhibition Centre, it’s also a chance to interface with local dealers, compare service offerings and perhaps sign a deal or two.
There’s also a conference day that will provide statistics on the commercial vehicles and automotive after-market industry, discussion of trends and projections, as well as presentations on safety for road freight operators.
In our June issue, Truck & Fleet Middle East will profile some of the must-see exhibitors, so pick up a copy when you’re at the show.
