The third edition of the trade fair will be a key meeting point for professionals from the automotive world, with more than 150 brands on display and participation from 8 countries. In addition to the exhibition, there will be activities such as the Performance, Detailing and Motortec Vintage areas, along with the Third Motortec Chile Olympics for Mechanical Engineering students. The Motortec Awards and a wide range of technical talks, discussions and business rounds also feature on the agenda.

Motortec Chile, organised by Espacio Riesco and IFEMA MADRID, will be held between 27 and 29 June in an event for professionals and experts from the automotive world. The main International Aftermarket Trade Fair this year will occupy more than 12,000 square metres and will have 150 national and foreign brands on display.

This new industry milestone will be the meeting point for companies, brand representatives, products and, of course, high-end vehicle models, which will be accompanied by a wide range of activities for over 5,000 visitors that are expected to attend the event.

Katherine Becker, director of Motortec Chile, highlights that ‘we will host 8 countries representing Asia, Europe and Latin America, making us a platform for the generation of commercial links between buyers and sellers, but at the same time, a space to learn about innovation, solutions, knowledge and the experience of their professionals’.


Among the activities and new features at this year's show will be a special area for Performance, Detailing and Motortec Vintage, with live demonstrations of how a car can be correctly upgraded and fitted out.

Likewise, the Third Motortec Chile Olympics will be held for Mechanical Engineering students, which will be a highlight for the academic world and future professionals in the automotive sector.

This competition, organised by DUOC UC, allows for the continuous improvement and professional development of the participating students. ‘It is an invaluable opportunity for the academic world, as it allows participants to showcase their achievements and progress in their skills, allowing to demonstrate their commitment to excellence and quality in education,’ says Claudio Larenas, lecturer at DUOC UC Maipú.

New categories of participants have been defined for this year's Olympics: one for technical schools, and one for professional institutions. This differentiation ensures an appropriate level of challenge for each type of institution, with tests ranging from electronic diagnostics to electromobility. However, the highlight will be the Women's Category Competition, where there will be a representative from AIEP, DUOC and INACAP.

The Motortec Awards will also be an highlight, having attracted a large number of visitors last year.  The event brings together the entire Performance, Car Care, Car Audio and Aftermarket industry to recognise its leading representatives and promoters.

Categories will include:

  • Best ‘Tuerca’ Event
  • Best Content Creator
  • Best ‘Tuerca’ Community
  • Career Award
  • Person of the Year
  • Best Overall Restoration and Upgrade Project


Motortec Chile, organised by Espacio Riesco and IFEMA MADRID, has also prepared workshops, talks and training sessions with experts in various fields, especially for those seeking greater knowledge in their areas.

The panel discussions, which will take place on the main stage of the fair, will address topics such as ‘The Aftermarket towards 2030’; ‘The new integral automotive services’; ‘Equity and commitment to gender balance in the automotive world’; ‘REP Law: Circular Economy for the Aftermarket"; among other subjects.
