Michael Johannes, Brand Manager Automechanika

It is my pleasure to welcome you to the 21th edition of Automechanika St. Petersburg. Last year we moved to another location and we are happy with the new ExpoForum International Exhibition & Convention Centre which is an ultra-modern facility with an outstanding infrastructure. Moreover, Automechanika St. Petersburg is being held for the second time concurrently with the Autoprom Russia, St. Petersburg Technical Fair. This opens up a variety of interesting opportunities for exhibitors and visitors.

Today, Automechanika is represented by 15 events on four continents. Around 21,000 exhibitors and more than 600,000 visitors take part in the events held under the Automechanika brand worldwide. It is the meeting place for the automotive aftermarket and the interface for the industry, workshops and trade. With its unrivalled and wide-ranging spectrum for the Parts & Systems, Accessories & Customizing, Repair & Maintenance, Management & Digital Solutions and Car Wash, Care & Reconditioning segments, Automechanika covers the value chain of the automobile industry in its entirety.

In the automotive sector, Messe Frankfurt can now offer you an even broader portfolio of leading international events. Along with 15 Automechanika trade fairs, Messe Frankfurt already holds a series of new fairs for the automobile, bike, bus, boat and truck segments. They include the Automotive Engineering Show in India, Busworld Russia powered by Autotrans, Capas Chengdu in China, Comtrans Commercial Vehicle Show in Russia which is the world’s second-biggest truck show, Eurasia Moto Bike Expo in Istanbul, the South African Festival of Motoring and the Johannesburg Boat Show, as well as conferences such as the Connected Mobility Conference in the USA and the Tatarstan International Automotive Forum supported by Automechanika. I hope to see you there or at one of our Automechanika fairs.

I wish you an interesting time at the fair, lots of new business contacts and productive discussions.

Mr. Maksim Meyksin, Chairman of the Saint-Petersburg Committee for industrial policy and innovations

Mr. Maksim MeyksinDear participants, managers, and guests of the Automechanika St. Petersburg exhibition!

On behalf of the Saint-Petersburg Committee for Industrial Policy and Innovations, I would like to extend a heartfelt welcome to all the managers, participants, and guests of Automechanika St. Petersburg, a leading exhibition featuring car parts, equipment and accessories, and equipment for service stations, from across the Russian North-West and the Baltic countries.

Saint-Petersburg is one of Russia's largest industrial hubs, a true driver of science and progressive learning innovations; and as such, it is happy to once again welcome the representatives of the automotive industry from various Russian regions and worldwide.

I am confident that such a sector-oriented exhibition, which has gathered the best of the best in business, industry unions, as well as scientists and representatives of government authorities, will allow us to discuss a range of important and pressing issues faced by the automotive industry.

I wish all the participants, managers, and guests of the fair and conference to have a productive discussion, to make meaningful connections, and to achieve overall success!

Mr. Vladimir Katenev, President of the Saint-Petersburg Chamber of Commerce and Industry

Mr. Vladimir KatenevDear participants and guests of the Automechanika St.Petersburg exhibition and the Petersburg International Automotive Conference (PIAC / Autoprom Russia)!

I am happy to welcome you to these momentous events, which are counted among the most important automotive industry-themed conferences and exhibitions that are held in our city. The agenda features many items attractive to car manufacturers, trade centres, and service stations of all levels, both from Saint-Petersburg and other Russian regions, as well as from elsewhere around the world.

This expo and conference combination covers the entire production chain, from industrial design, research, and assembling car parts, to the finished cars and every aspect of its post-sales support. Thus, the participants get a great opportunity to familiarize themselves with new technologies and solutions, to share their experience, and to establish business contacts with Russian and foreign companies.

I wish all the participants, managers, and guests of the exhibition and conference to have a productive working session and to start new promising projects. Being a long-time supporter of various trade expos, the Saint-Petersburg Chamber of Commerce and Industry is more than willing to contribute to the development of the city's industrial and commercial infrastructure.
