Around the Industry: Automechanika Chicago in April 2015
Automechanika Chicago will be the largest U.S. tradeshow for automotive technicians and shop owners dedicated to high-end technical training and management classes, while showcasing the newest tools, equipment and products in the market. The show will be the 14th Automechanika event around the globe. 20,000 attendees are expected to attend the convention at McCormick Place in Chicago, April 24-26, 2015.
Chicago was chosen as an ideal location for the venture because it is centrally located in the U.S. and easily accessible for drive-in attendees and air travel. McCormick Place will serve as home to Automechanika Chicago on a biannual basis starting next year.
Michael Johannes, brand manager of Automechanika, said the show’s shop-friendly environment “will allow visitors, from technicians to shop owners, to really get a feel for the new product offerings through the various demonstrations, management seminars and technical training sessions. With the number of diverse product categories exhibiting at this one event, attendees can experience the latest advancements in a very efficient manner.”
