AMR 2024 Expands Exhibition Space, Adds New Specialised Zones

The Auto Maintenance and Repair Expo (AMR) will return to the National Convention and Exhibition Centre (Tianjin) in China from 20 to 23 March, with the organisers expecting more than 1,200 companies from around the world to span 100,000 square metres of exhibition space.

Pavilions from Germany, Italy, Taiwan and Malaysia have confirmed participation, alongside buyer delegations from Korea, Malaysia, Myanmar, Singapore, Thailand, Vietnam, and more.

In addition to serving as a “one-stop platform” for aftermarket business exchange, information sharing and sourcing, the 2024 event will introduce new specialised zones to key industrial sectors, highlighting trending topics.

AMR 2024’s Repair and Maintenance sector will present a lineup of domestic brands featuring specialised areas for body and paint, diagnostics, repair, car washing and car care. Occupying an anticipated 60,000 square metres of floor space, this sector is poised to attract more than 100 buyer delegations in addition to 20,000 visitors from around the world.

In response to growing demand for car care products across northern and southern China, AMR 2024 will expand its Parts and Components sector to more than 25,000 square metres. Hosting over 500 exhibitors, the area will facilitate networking and collaboration opportunities between foreign and local parts enterprises. Product displays will include body and chassis, driving systems, car interiors and exteriors, and parts remanufacturing.

One of the new specialised zones will showcase chemicals used in car repair and maintenance, with a highlight on fuels, lubricants, and chemicals used for air-conditioning, cooling and safety. A number of events announcing updated industry standards will also be conducted, while chemical innovations meeting high performance and environmental protection standards will be highlighted.

The Green Repair & New Energy Zone will continue to serve as a core highlight of the show. This zone will converge the latest in maintenance technologies, equipment and materials, as well as industry standards and testing solutions that fulfil current requirements for environmental protection.

The 2024 event will also mark the 10th anniversary of the Beijing-Tianjin-Hebei development initiative. The Tianjin-Hebei Manufacturing zone will explore the region’s comprehensive automotive service chain and its capabilities, covering topics including automotive manufacturing-related products, testing services, port facilities, and industry-supportive policies.

AMR 2024 will debut the Industry and Education Integration zone, which will feature teaching equipment, software and materials, alongside scenario-based displays of workshop repair equipment and tools.

The show will also coordinate a series of related competitions centred around car maintenance skills, encouraging the sharing of expertise on techniques and technical enhancements.

AMR is co-organised by China Automotive Maintenance Equipment Industry Association (CAMEIA), China Automotive Maintenance and Repair Association (CAMRA), Messe Frankfurt (Shanghai) and China National Machinery Industry International (Sinomachint).
