More than 1,100 exhibitors with 3,030 booths packed the NANGANG Exhibition Hall here in Taipei last week for the combined 2013 Taipei International Auto Parts & Accessories Show (TAIPEI AMPA) and Taipei International Automobile Electronics Show (AutoTronics Taipei).
The organizer of the shows, Taiwan External Trade Development Council (TAITRA), says the turnout for shows, held April 10-13, is a 6.7 percent increase over last year's show. In another part of the city, two other shows are being held: the Taiwan International Motorycle Show and the Taiwan International Electric Vehicle Show. Organizers say the combined four-in-one shows are a first for Asia.
TAITRA officials say the combined AMPA and AutoTronics shows are expected to attract 6,500 buyers and generate more than $1.3 billion in business. This year marks the 29th AMPA show and eighth AutoTronics show.
