Automechanika Kuala Lumpur defers until 2023
Throughout the year, Messe Frankfurt, the organiser of Automechanika Kuala Lumpur, has closely monitored Malaysia’s COVID-19 situation and the viability of domestic and overseas participation. While the country still reports daily cases, various levels of the Movement Control Order (MCO) also affect travel in and around the country. In this regard, the company has maintained close communications with the local auto community, exhibitors, partners and supporting organisations. Following their consultation, each party has agreed to the new show date of 16 to 18 March 2023.
