Automechanika Istanbul 2021 is postponed! New Dates: 18-21 November 2021

24 Feb 2021

Due to current worldwide conditions derived from COVID-19 pandemic, ongoing international travel restrictions and after an evaluation process together with our industry partners, associations and exhibitors, Automechanika Istanbul management team decided to postpone Automechanika Istanbul which was scheduled to be held between 8-11 April 2021. The new dates of Automechanika Istanbul 2021 is scheduled for 18-21 November 2021.

We have decided to postpone the show, not only due to international and Turkish domestic travel restrictions, but also due to our responsibility for the elimination of public health risks, as many similar international fairs within the industry did as well. 

Considering the ongoing vaccination procedures in Turkey and abroad, it is reasonable to think that there will be much better conditions to hold our event in November, rather than in April. With this decision taken, we aim to provide a safer environment for our exhibitors, visitors and supporters during Automechanika Istanbul to be held between 18-21 November 2021.

Please feel free to contact us by e-mail or telephone for your questions and comments about Turkey’s Leading International Automotive Industry Fair, Automechanika Istanbul to be held between 18-21 November 2021. Until the time we get together again in our venue for a trade show with personal encounters, we wish you to keep optimistic, safe and healthy with your family and loved ones.


Automechanika Istanbul is made possible with the help of the Turkish Trade Ministry.
