AKTEX Inc. participates in the largest Middle East automotive component show AUTOMECHANIKA Middle East.
This June AKTEX Inc. descended on Dubai (UAE) to participate in the largest international automotive component show AUTOMECHANIKA ME (1st - 3rd June 2008). According to organizer’s press-reports, this year’s exhibition has lived up to expectations as the Middle East region’s largest automobile aftermarket show. The numbers speak for themselves, 8 pavilions, 950 stands and all encompassing exhibitors from 45 countries. Even though registration was a requisite to attend, the show attracted more than 18,500 visitors over three days. The event covered a full range of motor vehicle parts as well as components for drive, chassis, body, electrics and electronic groups as well as equipment for vehicle service and bodywork repair, painting, tires and naturally batteries. The event was organized by MESSE FRANKFURT (Germany), the world’s largest exhibition company with branches in 15 countries. Besides UAE, the AUTOMECHANIKA series includes exhibitions in many other countries including Russia, Moscow and Saint-Petersburg respectfully. AKTEX Inc. actually presented its export brands from its stand in the Performance & Tuning section of the exhibition. The display attracted interest not only from local businessmen but also visitors from Middle Eastern, African and European countries. Visitors were taken by the high quality and attractive design of AKTEX batteries with many surprised to learn of its Russian origin. As a result of the show, a lot of contacts and tentative agreements were established. Earlier in the year at the end of May the company participated in yet another specialized event; The International Battery Fair within the small and medium business forum in Suzhou, (China). Located not far from Shanghai, Suzhou has striven to become one of the major international trade areas. Suzhou’s intent can be seen by its immense Expo-Centre which hosted the exhibition. Other such business construction projects are further proof of its intent. AUTOMECHANIKA in Frankfurt, Germany will see AKTEX Inc launch its credentials on the global market with a promoting stand alongside the largest players in the industry.
