Automechanika Johannesburg & COVID
Following the cancellation of Automechanika Johannesburg in 2021 due to COVID concerns, it is time to meet in person at the 8th edition of the leading international trade fair for the automotive service industry. Тrade visitors and decision makers show their excitement and support for a live edition in 2023. The official dates are set for September 5th – September 7th. The JHB Johannesburg Expo Centre has prepared for a large audience with improved ventilation, frequent cleaning and disinfection points at key spots.
