SMMT member success at Automechanika Moscow

14 March 2009 #SMMT News

SMMT has a history of providing its members with valuable opportunities to promote their work abroad through trade missions and exhibitions. The next mission to the Automechanika Show in Dubai will run from 31 May to 6 June 2009.  


One company that has benefited from previous exhibitions is TruckProtect which supported the SMMT recently at the Automechanika Show in Moscow.


Managing director of TruckProtect, Russell Fowler, said: “The quality of meetings has been exceptionally good, despite the global recession reducing the number of visitors to successive shows. The SMMT’s support was first-rate and invaluable and we found attending the shows aided our understanding of the trading culture in new territories. Excellent opportunities have arisen at all shows, in particular the recent Automechanika in Moscow. Dealers and distributors alike have shown a serious and focussed interest on our products.”


The UK motor industry already has a strong global presence with more than 75% of the vehicles built in the UK each month being exported to over 100 markets worldwide.  SMMT is working to build the industry’s trade links further with ongoing relationships with China, Russia, Mexico and a host of other countries.
