An international exhibition "Auto+Automechanics. St.Petersburg" organised by the St. Petersburg exhibition association Lenexpo in concert with the German company Messe Frankfurt GmbH will open in St. Petersburg Wednesday.

Innovations of the automobile industry, equipment for hot-rod emporiums and maintenance centres, auto spares and auto accessories, motorbikes and bicycles - these are far from all the exhibits to be on display at the exhibition.
Within the event, the world's leading car producers will hold a series of presentations of their innovations. In particular, the official presentation of the new off-road vehicle Chevrolet-Niva whose production has been launched by the joint venture "General Motors-AvtoVAZ" will be held. The official sale of the new auto will begin immediately after it is displayed at the exhibition in St. Petersburg.
New Toyota, Audi, General Motors and Volkswagen cars will be presented at the exhibition.
Besides, scientific-practical conferences will be held within the exhibition, devoted to such topics as "Bus Transport and Car Care Centre of St. Petersburg" and "Barriers on International Automobile Transport and Possible Ways of Overcoming Them to Increase Competitiveness of Russian Carriers".
The crown jewel of the exhibition will be a show tournament for auto-noise. The winner of the contest will be the participant whose auto acoustic system is recognised as the most powerful.
The exhibition will last into November 3rd.
