The 13th edition of Automechanika Shanghai, with its new Reifen Zone for tires, wheels and rims, posted its most successful results to date, show organizers report.

The event is Asia’s largest for the automotive parts, tires, accessories and services industries and covers marketing, networking and education on a global scale.

This year’s edition, which took place Nov. 29 to Dec. 2, concluded with final figures for this year exceeding expectations:

* Visitors: 130, 928 (2016: 120,671): a 9% increase

* Exhibitors: 6,051 (2016: 5,756): a 5% increase

* Scale: 340,000 square meters (2016: 312,000): a 9% increase

The success of the fair and its expanded sector representation was reflected on the show floor, particularly through the new Reifen Zone as well as in the expanded Electronics & Systems sector and the E-Mobility & Infrastructure Zone. Visitors were impressed with the exciting displays within the Motorsports & High Performance Zone, and also with the increased number of international pavilions on offer during the fair, say organizers.

Positive feedback also came from Automechanika Shanghai’s many concurrent fringe events, which this year totaled 57. 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.

"The fair’s participants considered each of these aspects to be a vital source for expanding their business across Asia’s entire automotive industry, and have expressed their satisfaction with this year’s edition," show organizers say.

The next edition of Automechanika Shanghai will take place from Nov. 28 – Dec. 1, 2018. For more information, call +852 2802 7728 or see auto@hongkong.messefrankfurt.com.
