2016, the fair that with the passing of time and the growth of the automotive market became a must-see event. The new edition promises more than 300 exhibiting companies and almost 30,000 visitors from all parts of the world. Regarding the sector expectations, this year we estimate a higher number of international buyers which are attracted by the new economic conditions. They also trust that the first results of the recently passed “Spare Part Act” will start to be viewed, this act foresees tax reductions to the automotive terminals which include national manufacturing spare parts. The organizers are optimistic regarding the new edition, since “even if it is a sector closely linked to the ups and downs of the economic situation and the Brazilian crisis may directly affect it, exhibitors keep on choosing Automechanika as a platform to project and widen their business”, ensures Fabian Natalini, Project Manager. “We trust in the efforts of the spare part businessmen. We are going through a transition time, that as always generates uncertainty, but it can also be seen as an opportunity to make the difference, jump and overcome difficulties. Sometimes difficulties challenge us to be more innovative, and if there is something we trust in this edition is in innovation and new technologies”, he added. “We have very successful cases of exhibitors that made important contacts in matchmaking programs, in which they began to close sales with foreign buyers and this helps them to go on expanding at international level. Automechanika gives them a diffusion platform that is very difficult to get otherwise, at least in such a little time”, says Natalini. Since 2000, Automechanika Buenos Aires is the business and commercial exchange appointment for all the wholesalers, suppliers, manufacturers and exporters in South America. The edition is being carried out on November 9- 12, 2016 in La Rural Trade Center, Buenos Aires. It will cover an area of 30,000 sqm in which approximately 350 exhibitors of the local and international sphere will be exhibiting their technological advances. Visiting the exhibition offers the chance of extending the assortment of products, meeting new business partners, strengthening the positioning and taking part of several activities focused on the professional updating.
