The third edition of Automechanika Riyadh, Saudi's leading trade fair for the automotive aftermarket, will return to the kingdom's capital in the fourth quarter of 2021, the show's organisers have announced. Automechanika Riyadh most recently took place in February 2020 at Al Faisaliah Hotel, attracting close to 3,000 traders, manufacturers, distributors, retailers, workshop or garage owners, and service providers. The next edition will run from October 11 to 13, 2021 at the Riyadh International Conference and Exhibition Centre. The three-day event, organised by Saudi-based ACE Group under license by Dubai's Messe Frankfurt Middle East, usually runs biennially, alternating between its Saudi counterpart Automechanika Jeddah, which would normally take place in 2021. However, the positive industry response to the show earlier this year, from both exhibitors and trade visitors alike, coupled with Riyadh's status as the hub of commercial and industrial activity, meant running the show in Riyadh again in 2021 was the preferred option. "This is underlined by government activity in Riyadh, and in a post-pandemic world, large government projects will emanate from the kingdom's central regions and branch outwards," commented Mahmut Gazi Bilikozen, Automechanika Riyadh's show director.
