A trade event bringing together manufacturers, distributors and repairers from the automotive market seeking new products, services and partners, EQUIP AUTO ALGERIA 2019 will take place from 11 to 14 March 2019.



The last edition of EQUIP AUTO ALGERIA yielded extremely positive results. The show confirmed its status as the largest reference trade show for after-sales professionals on North African markets, with a participation of 340 exhibitors spanning 12,000 sqm of exhibition space and visitor attendance up 8% on 2016, reaching more than 9,800 visitors, 6% of whom are from outside Algeria, mainly from North Africa and Southern Europe.

In view of the development of the automotive aftermarket and that of the budding car industry in Algeria, along with the stated ambitions of investors in automotive industrial subcontracting, EQUIP AUTO ALGERIA stands as a unique and unmissable event to support decision makers in building an automotive industry in Algeria and gain insight into the changes underway in a fast growing market.

Every year, EQUIP AUTO ALGERIA offers its visitors the widest and most representative offering in equipment, machinery, products and services for vehicle maintenance and repair professionals (bodywork and repair shops, importers, wholesalers, re-sellers, fleet managers and car service providers).

As an active member of a commercially and industrially developing environment, EQUIP AUTO ALGERIA looks forward to welcoming you to its 13th edition, from 11 to 14 March 2019, at the SAFEX Palais des Expositions.
