Automechanika Academy and Automotive Aftermarket Symposium



Automechanika Academy's Automotive Aftermarket Symposium which was held as a part of Automechanika Jeddah on February 1, 2017 was a tremendous success.

The Academy which is a regular feature of Automechanika in Dubai was introduced this year at Automechanika Jeddah, and was an ideal platform for key industry players and thought leaders to discuss and analyse the spare parts, maintenance and repair market in Saudi Arabia for both commercial and light vehicles.

Some of the key topics that were discussed at the symposium include:
• Macro-economic outlook and its impact on the Automotive aftermarket sector
• Policy framework, legislation and consumer protection laws
• Optimising distribution strategies and network for spare parts retailers
• Garage standards, vehicle inspection and license to practice
• Customer loyalty and enhancing customer satisfaction … and more

Given the positive feedback that we received from the delegates at the Automechanika Academy Jeddah 2017, planning is already underway for the next edition which will be held in 2019, details of which will be published here soon.
