The exhibition will be held in 13 halls on a 36,000-square meter venue on Tehran’s Permanent International Fairground. During the four-day event, visitors can find a wide range of automotive aftermarket products and services including machineries to manufacture parts, engineering and research platforms, raw material and accessories for vehicles, specialized automobile journals, car maintenance equipment, a wide assortment of car cleaning products, and after-sales services.

A number of meetings and educational workshops will also be held on the sidelines of the IAP 2014 in which academics, experts, designers, and researchers will share their knowledge of the auto parts industry.

The organizers say the IAP 2014 mainly aims at preparing the ground to develop industrial cooperation between Iranian and foreign companies, finding new export markets, and establishing new commercial ties for exchanging expertise and technical knowhow as well as globally successful experiences.
