Messe Frankfurt India and Auto Component Manufacturers of India (ACMA) have announced a shift in the exhibition cycle for their leading aftermarket exhibition ACMA Automechanika New Delhi. The change signifies the move of the Indian edition from odd years to even years, with the next physical edition scheduled from February 1 to 3, 2024 at Pragati Maidan New Delhi.

The first post-pandemic edition in New Delhi to be staged in February 2024, will mark a key shift in the development of the event, supporting component advancements for shifting mobility trends as well as mark the start of its new cycle in even-numbered years, the organisers state. In alignment with the OICA calendar of global auto shows, the Auto Expo will be held every odd year from 2023 onwards. The Components Show held in tandem with the Motor Show will thus take place at the same time.

"The shift to an even year cycle will ensure the industry has a common networking point every year and secures business continuity", Mr Raj Manek, executive director and board member, Messe Frankfurt Asia Holdings Ltd, shared, explaining the necessary change of timescale for the Indian edition of the renowned platform.
