AUTOMECHANIKA Birmingham has been named Best Trade Show at the Exhibition News Awards.
In addition to Best Trade Show, Automechanika Birmingham also took home the trophy for Best Independent Organiser at the awards ceremony.
Automechanika Birmingham 2017 sold 5,000 square metres of space before the 2016 event had taken place and attracted 45 per cent more exhibitors overall.
More than 12,000 visitors attended the event, which hosted 800 exhibitors from the vehicle production and aftermarket sector.
The two awards follow four that Automechanika Birmingham has won over the previous two years.
Simon Albert, event director at Automechanika Birmingham, said: ‘Now in our third year of Automechanika Birmingham, the team and I are grateful for the support of our exhibitors, visitors and partners in helping to make the industry event a huge success.
‘We are now only 10 weeks away from the 2018 event and we have introduced a raft of new initiatives to suit the entire automotive industry.
‘New elements include a dedicated hall for garage businesses, as well as areas for retailers and free business advice, a meetings programme to encourage business conversations on exhibitor stands, new live demonstrations and free training from the experts. We look forward to welcoming everyone from June 5 to 7 at the NEC.’
