The 13th edition of Automechanika Shanghai, which took place from November 29 to December 2, 2017, posted its most successful results. Final figures for this year’s show were:
- Visitors: 130, 928 (2016: 120,671) - 9% increase
- Exhibitors: 6,051 (2016: 5,756) - 5% increase
- Scale: 340,000 sqm (2016: 312,000) - 9% increase
The success of the fair and its expanded sector representation was clearly reflected on the show floor, particularly through the new REIFEN Zone for tires, wheels and rims; as well as in the expanded Electronics & Systems sector and the E-Mobility & Infrastructure Zone. Visitors said they were impressed with the displays within the Motorsports & High Performance Zone, and also with the increased number of international pavilions.
More positive feedback came from Automechanika Shanghai’s 57 concurrent fringe events. These included the Connected Mobility Conference, as well as the AIAG Auto Parts Purchasing Leadership and Suppliers Summit and the 3rd Summit: Merger and Acquisition Strategies for Chinese Automotive Corporations in the Overseas Markets. Fair participants said these were a vital source for expanding their business across Asia’s entire automotive industry, and expressed their satisfaction with this year’s edition.
The next edition of Automechanika Shanghai will take place from November 28 to December 1, 2018. For more information, contact +852 2802 7728 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
