The newly formed joint venture company Messe Frankfurt Traders-Link (Beijing) Co Ltd is set to present the revamped Automotive Maintenance and Repair Expo (AMR) with an improved product range to better serve China’s dynamic automotive aftermarket. As one of Asia’s largest repair and maintenance industry events, AMR 2018 will attract 1200 exhibitors and approximately 60,000 trade visits are expected to explore the unwavering business opportunities and developments in 110,000 sqm of trade space. The show is co-organised by the China Automotive Maintenance Equipment Industry Association (CAMEIA) and the China Automotive Maintenance and Repair Association (CAMRA) and will be held from 1 – 4 April 2018 at the New China International Exhibition Centre (NCIEC) in Beijing.
While the evolving aftermarket sector has experienced surging demand for diversified and innovative products, the production, distribution, end-use and service sectors in the auto supply chain have also been transforming to adapt to these changes. Tapping into this challenging business has become a clear objective for more than a thousand of AMR’s participating repair and maintenance equipment, tools and consumable suppliers. This influential industry platform has attracted key international and domestic companies, including Axalta, Beissbarth, Bright, Car-O-Liner, Celette, Corghi, Festool, Fly-Eagle, Hunter, Kapci, Launch, Maha, Mirka, Panda, Piusi, Rav, Rupes, SATA and Snap-on, each looking to maintain a competitive edge in the dynamic market.
Extensive supply chain coverage in product zones
This year’s AMR has added a brand-new Car Care and Spare Parts Hall, to better serve distributors and the end-users such as workshops, 4S shops, trading companies, chain stores, car care shops, tyre shops and car washes. The specialised hall can help participating suppliers of repair equipment and tools, car care and spare parts such as APG, Biaobang, BPI, Juxuan, Leoch, Luoshi, Sensen, Sontian, Sorl and Wepp to build up their brands and create stronger connections with end-users.
The hall will join the show’s existing areas dedicated to Tools & Tyre equipment and consumables, Cleaning, Car Care, Refinishing, Collision Repair, Garage, Chain Store, Testing & Diagnostics, brand equipment and an international zone. The expanded offerings at the show will better reflect the most current industry trends and address multiple sourcing needs of all sorts of buyers.
In addition, the show’s organisers have also put more efforts in visitor recruitment, allowing exhibitors to link up with a wider range of buyers. So far, more than a thousand overseas visitors have registered for the show, with over half of them being new attendees. Meanwhile in China, the organisers have worked closely with key trade associations in Beijing, Hebei, Henan, Hunan, Tianjin and Guangdong Province to organise key buyer delegation visits at the show.
Automotive Maintenance & Repair Expo 2018 (AMR 2018) will be held from 1 – 4 April at the New China International Exhibition Centre (NCIEC).
