Messe Frankfurt has decided to bring forward Automechanika Frankfurt 2012 by one week to avoid clashing with the IAA Commercial Vehicles Show.
This means the comprehensive automotive industry trade fair, which includes service station and car wash exhibitions, will now take place in Frankfurt am Main from September 11 to 16, 2012.

“By taking this step, we relieve not only the pressure on the fair and
exhibition calendar for September 2012 but also comply with a
request of the automobile industry”, explained Detlef Braun, a member
of the Messe Frankfurt’s management board. “Thus our
customers will be able to take part in Automechanika Frankfurt and
use the IAA Commercial Vehicles Show in Hanover to make
presentations and expand their business relationships.”
