The event’s organisers, ACMA and Messe Frankfurt, will make a strong effort to combat counterfeiting at the show. ACMA for example, has established a campaign dubbed "ASLI-NAQLI," while Messe Frankfurt‘s global initiative "Messe Frankfurt Against Copying" will provide global assistance in ensuring the intellectual property of the fair’s exhibitors and spread awareness on benefits of using genuine auto components.
Commenting on the initiative, Mr Surinder Kanwar, President ACMA said: “We at ACMA are delighted to partner with Messe Frankfurt. The Indian aftermarket has significantly grown in size and we hope that ACMA Automechanika India will give a further boost to this market’s development. ACMA will also mobilise participation and business delegations to Automechanika’s twelve other worldwide fairs held in Asia, Europe, North America, South America and Africa.”
Held concurrently with the exhibition, ACMA will organise an Aftermarket Seminar, from 8 – 9 February 2013. The seminar aims to help attendees understand current and future trends in the aftermarket industry, as well as examine the challenges and opportunities the sector has to offer. As the aftermarket services sector has evolved, the distribution channels necessary to meet buyers’ needs have grown accordingly, in tune with evolving market forces and changing consumer preferences. At the seminar, prominent speakers from across the industry will offer insight on issues and the latest trends prevalent in both India and the world’s aftermarket sector.
Mr Raj Manek, Managing Director, Messe Frankfurt India said: “Messe Frankfurt’s partnership with ACMA is continuing to be a very fruitful venture. By combining our expertise in the organisation of automobile exhibitions around the world and ACMA’s invaluable knowledge of India’s auto component industry, I strongly believe the New Delhi fair will serve as the perfect industry trading platform. The 2013 show will offer attendees the chance to witness India’s growing aftermarket sector. I am sure there will be something at the show for everyone involved in automotive technology to discover great business opportunities.”
