2013 Automechanika Shanghai Show Expands To 17 Halls

Organized by Messe Frankfurt (Shanghai) Co. Ltd. and the China National Automotive Industry International Corp. (CNAICO), the show is now the world's second-largest Automechanika show for automotive parts, accessories, equipment and services, with the largest one being held in Frankfurt, Germany.

SHANGHAI, China — The 2013 edition of Automechanika Shanghai will utilize all 17 halls covering 200,000 square meters at the Shanghai New International Expo Centre, Shanghai, China, when it takes place Dec. 10-13.

Organized by Messe Frankfurt (Shanghai) Co. Ltd. and the China National Automotive Industry International Corp. (CNAICO), the show is now the world’s second-largest Automechanika show for automotive parts, accessories, equipment and services, with the largest one being held in Frankfurt, Germany.

It features leading brands including APSIS, Asiawash, Bantam, Bosch, Carlas, Car-union, Delphi, FAWER, GYS, HSAE, Hennessy, Launch, Luoshi, MANN+HUMMEL, SONAX, SVAUTO, Wanxiang, WD-40, Yuchai and Yunhan, representing the automotive OE and aftermarket products and services from the three main product sectors of parts and components, repair and maintenance and accessories and tuning.

“Automechanika Shanghai continues to grow and exhibition space for our upcoming show has increased by 11 percent compared to 2012 and now totals 200,000 square meters," said Jason Cao, senior general manager of Messe Frankfurt (HK) Ltd. "This is a major landmark as we will accommodate 4,400 exhibitors and have an expected 80,000 international and domestic quality buyers. To meet industry demands, the repair and maintenance sector will expand to three halls while the international exhibition area and the accessories and Tuning sector will double in size. Furthermore, added product categorization will help to support product specialization, developing platforms for buyers to easily find their suppliers.”

New auto air-conditioning zone to meet market demand
The fast-growing auto air-conditioning market is facing demands for its core component technology to be more innovative. The market is looking for products that are more lightweight, energy-efficient, environmentally friendly and more health-orientated. To meet these needs, a new auto air-conditioning zone will be set up in Hall E5. Supported by various industry organisations, it is expected to attract 200 exhibitors who will present their auto air-conditioning systems, components and related chemicals. In addition, there will be relevant seminars relating to auto air-conditioning industry.

“We are keen to make this zone an excellent platform to share the latest market news and technology, so we have invited two German air-conditioning related associations, Fachverband Gebäude-Klima e.V (FGK) and Verband Deutscher Kälte-Klima-Fachbetriebe e.V. (VDKF) to organise pavilions and activities," Cao added.

Enhanced truck competence program
In 2012, China exported 400,000 commercial vehicles, up 17 percent from the previous year, representing 37 percent of the total auto export value. As a result of this fast-growing sector, this year’s truck competence program has enhanced its industry focus and will be supported by global promotional campaigns, industry related fringe programmes, together with invitations to specific VIP buyers.

“The commercial vehicle industry offers high potential for industry players," said Xuecheng Ji, president of the China National Automotive Industry International Corp. (CNAICO). "For example, by 2015, it is expected that there will be more than 35 million units of commercial vehicles in China. Manufacturers are eager to explore new emerging markets overseas which offer many opportunities in the parts and components, as well as the international and domestic after sales sectors which can be fully explored at Automechanika Shanghai’s truck competence program.”

Automechanika Shanghai is one of 13 Automechanika shows held in Africa, Asia, Europe and Central and South America. For more information about the show, visit www.automechanika-shanghai.com.
