Messe Frankfurt acquires Automotive Engineering Show in India

News this week: Messe Frankfurt India Trade Fair Pvt Ltd, the Indian subsidiary of Messe Frankfurt, announced its acquisition of the Automotive Engineering Show for an undisclosed sum. The show was previously owned and managed by Mumbai-based Focussed Event Management.

The Automotive Engineering Show is focused on technologies for the automotive manufacturing sector and features categories including IT solutions, automation systems, tools and equipment, and robotics. The show’s previous edition in 2013 attracted 120 exhibitors and more than 5,600 trade visitors.

Mr Raj Manek, managing director of Messe Frankfurt India, was quoted saying, “The Automotive Engineering Show has already established itself as a credible industry platform. We are delighted to add the fair to our existing portfolio, which will greatly complement our existing trade fair on the automotive aftermarket - Automechanika.”
