The 2018 TAIPEI AMPA, AutoTronics Taipei, Taiwan International Intelligent Transportation Show, Taiwan International Motorcycle Industry Show, and Taiwan International Car Tuning & Car Care Show each came to a successful end between April 14 and 15. This year, the 5-in-1 Mega Show attracted 6,854 foreign buyers from 120 countries. The top-10 major buyer nations (and regions) were Japan, Mainland China, the United States, Malaysia, South Korea, Thailand, the Philippines, Singapore, Hong Kong and Indonesia.

The three major themes at this year’s 5-in-1 Mega Show were smart tech, automotive electronics and electric vehicles. Numerous manufacturers at the venue exhibited the newest products in smart driver assistance systems, high performance battery modules, and automotive electronic applications. Some highlights included: Mobiletron’s active battery balance management technology, Xing Mobility’s pure electric supercar Miss R and electric commercial truck Mr. T, and E-Lead’s remote imaging head-up display. This year, a self-driving vehicle test drive activity was also held in the outdoor exhibit area, where a first-ever general road experience area was added. ARTC’s smart car and HAITEC’s LUXGEN S3 EV+ served as the experience vehicles: ARTC’s smart car integrated AI technologies, such as pedestrian, vehicle, and traffic signal identification and active vehicle distance cruise control; HAITEC’s LUXGEN S3 EV+ integrated AR technologies, such as chassis see-through imaging and an active 360-degree panoramic imaging system; the hands-on experience provided visitors with a feel for the future of smart transportation.

The Taipei Auto Parts 5-in-1 Mega Show has always attracted crowds of quality foreign buyers. This year, attendees included notable buyer groups from Mainland China, New Zealand, Myanmar, the Philippines and Pakistan. The Myanmar Automobile Manufacturer & Distributor Association organized a visitor group to participate in the exhibit; its president Dr. Soe Tun also attended the AMPA Myanmar media forum. Vice President Jay Park of the U.S. Trico Group said that this year’s visit focused on seeking potential auto parts suppliers. He has found Taiwan’s manufacturers to be extremely active in exploring the export market and that the products were of excellent quality and very competitive. Moreover, Italy’s Ufo Plast Srl Procurement Manager Lorenzo Fontana said that this year marks his seventh visit to the motorcycle industry show in Taiwan. He considers Taiwan’s exhibitions very suitable for foreign buyers due to the appropriate scale of the exhibits, centralization of motorcycle products, and the ease of finding suitable suppliers.

This year, exhibitors not only expanded in scale but in their investments in booth decorations. Juluen, an active exhibitor, indicated that AMPA is the perfect platform to expose products and to network with potential buyers. Moreover, exhibits attract many “heavyweight” buyers during the exhibition period. Exhibitor Fukuta Motors said that the booths in this year’s show were well planned and drew high rates of inquiry from international buyers. The exhibit met their expectations and they expect to participate in the future. A first-time Japanese exhibitor, FE Trade, was not only the largest exhibitor in the foreign area but also a big supporter of exhibit services and visiting buyer quality. It plans to participate and expand its exhibit area in next year’s exhibition.

The first-ever Taiwan International Intelligent Transportation Show (ITS) and Taiwan International Car Tuning & Car Care Show were also well received. An ITS exhibitor, the Automotive Ethernet Alliance said that domestic and international industry visitors during the exhibition period were extremely impressed by the development of Ethernet in Taiwan. An automobile manufacturer from Mainland China expressed willingness to cooperate during the exhibition; buyers from Lebanon and Egypt also expressed interest in negotiating distribution of China-Motor’s e-moving electric scooters. Car modification exhibitor Chuanwei Jeep revealed that they confirmed sales on 6 vehicles during the exhibition period, a very fruitful result.

In the 2018 Global EV/Auto Parts Markets conference held during the exhibition period, talks were delivered by such notable people as former Senior Manager of Audi Chung-Liang Chang, Representative Director of the Japanese Association for the Promotion of Electric Vehicles (APEV) Nobuhiro Tajima, and the Vice President of Technology of the Auto Care Association Taylor Mitchell. The event attracted over 300 registered participants, and the speakers and businesses engaged in lively interaction during the conference. In addition, the event invited Taiwan’s “car god” He-Huang Chen and “the people’s test driver” I-Chen Liao to the stage at TWTC Exhibition Hall 1 to share their racing experiences and deep automotive knowledge. The event attracted numerous businesses and non-commercial visitors. The response was enthusiastic.
