Sweeping growth in Automechanika Shanghai 2016 show

Connectivity Zone and Electronics & Systems sector are major highlights of show

his year’s Automechanika Shanghai show has maintained the road to success with its continued growth following the relocation to a bigger venue last year in Shanghai. The world’s second largest trade show for automotive parts, accessories, equipment and services is returning to the National Exhibition and Convention Center, Puxi, Shanghai from 30 November – 3 December 2016 with an even bigger show confirmed.

Considerable growth in both exhibitors and visitors from around the world is expected over last year’s numbers. Organisers are forecasting exhibitors to increase to 5,700, a 6% increase from last year, and visitors are expected to increase to 120,000, which is a jump of nearly 10% over last year’s numbers.

Last year was the first at the new venue and Automechanika Shanghai 2016 will be returning to this enlarged venue to accommodate the continuously growing popularity of the show. The 312,000 sqm exhibition space has also expanded from the space utilised last year by nearly 12%. There will be 13 halls, inclusive of both the North and West halls, to offer massive opportunities for information exchange, marketing, trading and education. The expanded space includes OE and aftermarkets of the entire industry chain.

Connectivity Zone and Electronics & Systems sector are major highlights of show

The continued success and expansion of Automechanika Shanghai has opened new options for special zones. Due to growing market trends and demands, the Electronics & Systems sector and its related Connectivity Zone are seeing particular gains and will be highlighted in specialised zones in a larger area.

As a result of this market expansion, connected vehicles, parts and equipment will be housed in the Electronics & Systems sector, which will expand to fill the entirety of Hall 4.1. The connectivity zone within the Electronics & Systems hall will also amplify the latest trends in connectivity, alternative drives, automated driving and mobility services. In addition to showcasing the latest trends, the hall will also include a series of events, such as seminars and various vehicle and product displays to give the industry players a comprehensive insight into the world of connected mobility.

Automechanika Shanghai 2016 is expecting a full spectrum of Electronics & Systems sector exhibitors at the show, including 1st and 2nd tier vehicle suppliers, telematics companies, mobile phone and network carriers, software developers, Internet providers as well as suppliers of traffic technology who offer products and solutions for connected cars and mobility solutions for the future.
