6000 Exhibitors are Gearing Up for Automechanika, Shanghai 2017
posted Nov 24 2017
Messe Frankfurt is all set to host Automechanika – The International Trade Fair for Automotive Parts, Equipment and Service Suppliers, from 29 November – 2 December 2017 at the National Exhibition and Convention Center in Shanghai, China.
The organiser is a subsidiary of Messe Frankfurt Exhibition GmbH and is one of Europe’s oldest and largest trade fair organizers.
The organizers are confident that the exhibition will continue on its expansion spree and would be much bigger, with even more exhibitors and visitors coming this year.
The Bigger, The Better
If one is to go by the facts and figures, the event is indeed going big – the exhibition space is expected to go up to 340,000 sqm this year. After all, 6,000 exhibitors from 40 countries and regions are expected. As many as 130,000 visitors from 140 countries are likely to be at the exhibition.
Reports of the last show reveal that 89 per cent visitors had a part to play in purchasing decisions. This year would be no different, if not better.
What’s hot at Automechanika
For starters, there’ll be a concurrent fringe programme, where the visitors can enjoy a series of hot topics from across the entire supply chain through lectures, seminars and forums.
The organizers have made arrangements for over 50 events, which will witness quite a few high profile speakers discussing the global market trends, latest technological advances, and future outlooks for different automotive industry sectors.
The product groups taking the centerstage at the exhibition are likely to include, but may not be limited to:
- Parts & Components
- Electronics & Systems’
- Accessories & Customising
- Repair & Maintenance
- Alternative Drive Systems & Digital Solutions
- Dealer & Workshop Management
- Car Wash, Care & Reconditioning
What most of the attendees are looking forward to is the successful debut of the REIFEN Zone – dedicated to tyre, wheel and rim products. With ACDelco, Aisin, APSIS, Autoyong, BAIC, Bando, Bosch, Yunyi, Zhuzhou Elite, Carzone, Dali, DOOCAR, EAE, Gaochang, Guangzhou Guangli and other key players being a part of the exhibition, the scale is now bigger than ever.
