The rescheduled Automechanika Shanghai – Shenzhen Edition will be held from 15 to 18 February 2023 at the Shenzhen World Exhibition & Convention Center.
“As the automotive industry is a core part of China’s economy and modernisation, we understand the importance of returning Automechanika Shanghai to the trade fair calendar for long-awaited marketing, trade, education, and business exchanges,” said Fiona Chiew, Deputy General Manager of event co-organiser Messe Frankfurt (HK). “The engagement on AMS Live over the past few weeks reflects these growing needs in the market, which we aim to carry through to the physical show in February. I look forward to reconnecting with all our industry friends soon.”
According to the show organisers, the Chinese government recently implemented several policies to encourage market growth and technological upgrades in the automotive industry such as ongoing incentives and tax breaks on sales, aiming to boost demand further, particularly in the new energy vehicle sector. Forecasts for the year ahead indicate 23.8 and 3.8 million passenger and commercial vehicles sales respectively, and a 35 per cent year-on-year increase in new energy vehicle orders.
“China’s automotive industry is gradually becoming one of the forerunners in the global market on account of policies under the 20th National Congress and the four new automotive modernisations,” said Li Zhang, General Manager of event co-organiser China National Machinery Industry International Co. “From this perspective, technological advancement and changing consumer habits are injecting momentum into the domestic market. This includes progress in connectivity and new energy, in addition to the rapid development of home-grown electric vehicle brands.”
The organisers said domestic and overseas participants can expect to see the most pressing topics and fast-moving trends in the Innovation4Mobility Showcase during Automechanika Shanghai – Shenzhen Edition. Areas across the fairground will address the rise of electric and hydrogen-powered vehicles, advanced technologies, green repair, developments in the logistics industry, and more.
