The EV supply chain will be the focus of Automechanika Ho Chi Minh City, which will take place from 23 to 25 June 2023 at the Saigon Exhibition and Convention Center (SECC).
Co-organised by Messe Frankfurt (HK), Chan Chao International Co and Yorkers Exhibition Service Vietnam, the show will build on the Vietnamese government’s Electric Vehicle Industry Development Plan that aims to make the country a leading manufacturer of electric vehicles (EV) and related components.
The show will have zones dedicated to Automotive Manufacturing & Automation, Auto Service & Maintenance / Accessories & Customising, and EV & IoT, with the aim of encouraging more local participation from the advanced technology manufacturing and production sector.
Additionally, a collection of domestic and international speakers at the Automechanika Connected Exchange, Smart Factory and Industry 4.0, and Electrification and Digitalisation Conferences will explore ways to enhance the vehicle lifecycle in line with electrification and digitalisation to transform Vietnam into a complete automotive manufacturing hub. This includes developing core parts, technologies, and digital solutions in manufacturing stages, through to end-user experiences and aftermarket services.
During the Auto Service and Maintenance Workshop, instructors will guide manufacturers, technical engineers, mechanics, and workshop owners on repairing and diagnosing high-voltage systems and recalibrating ADAS. Similarly, the Auto Service Day will help car owners recognise the importance of car maintenance through on-site auto services like diagnostics and detailing.
Elsewhere, AutoFest@HCMC will present a medley of activities to fuse automotive culture with the day-to-day marketplace. The line-up of events, which includes the Auto City Marketplace, EMMA Vietnam, Drift & Stunt, and Auto NITZ Party, offers more outlets for suppliers to interact with potential clients, workshops, car owners and enthusiasts.
