How did the visitors & exhibitors feel about the show?

“This marks Bosch’s 13th participation in Automechanika Shanghai, and our theme for this year is ‘Let’s Shape a New Era of Mobility. Together.’ We are excited to unveil our latest aftermarket solution for NEVs, aligning seamlessly with the key themes of the exhibition. As a leading global supplier of technology and services, Bosch remains commitments to enhancing investment and is accelerating our strategic deployment in key areas such as NEVs, offering tailored new product and services. With a global footprint, we can assist Chinese brands in accessing overseas markets through our parts, diagnostics, and global aftermarket service network.”

“The Innovation4Mobility Mainstage provides traditional equipment manufacturers with the opportunity to familiarise themselves with AI SoC innovative technologies and their applications. We hope that companies from the aftermarket will utilise these new inventions to catalyse further technological advancements. Afterall, Automechanika Shanghai serves as an effective guide for industry trends and integrates high-quality industry resources.”

“As a start-up company, we aim to utilise the platform and global resources provided by Automechanika Shanghai to enhance our market presence. The show comprehensively encompasses the entire automotive supply chain, drawing attention from across the country, Asia, and beyond. This lets us observe the market’s development first-hand, meet with industry peers, and gain valuable insights.”

“As a leading spare parts distributor in Europe, we have assembled 15 representatives to participate in the show, aiming to engage with our existing suppliers and explore new business opportunities. The discussions held so far have been highly promising, particularly regarding the advancements observed during my previous visit to China in 2019. The evident progress in production processes, marked by a shift towards heightened automation and improved product quality, is a positive indicator for potential collaborations.”

“The business matching service at Automechanika Shanghai is of high value-add. Its straightforward and efficient format saves us significant time in procuring new products from suppliers at the show. Overall, the trade fair is a very good fit for us due to the high internationalism, comprehensive industry coverage, and the presence of professional, high-quality parts and components suppliers.”

“Industry friends informed me that the show is a valuable information source. The New Energy Vehicle Sustainable Development Forum 2023 proved incredibly insightful due to the current industry focus on environmental protection, which is closely linked to the development of new energy in the automotive sector. The discussion on battery recycling during today’s session was particularly enlightening for me, as I anticipate its increasing relevance for the operations of my 4S store in the future.”

“Presenting at the Innovation4Mobility Mainstage was a very fruitful experience as I was able to explain the applications of additive manufacturing in the automotive industry to a highly professional audience. It can help to promote our company’s brand image to the right customers. In fact, there are many ways to incorporate 3D printing into the manufacturing process, which can improve both efficiency and quality at lower costs. Therefore, it is important to have platforms like Automechanika Shanghai for those looking to upgrade their production processes to truly understand the benefits.”

“Carbon peaking and neutrality are widely discussed environmental topics in the automotive industry. The applications of green solutions in China are vast. For example, many domestic enterprises have started engaging in lithium battery recycling. In addition, the hydrogen energy industry in the Netherlands has also noticed the opportunities and has begun to bring technologies to the domestic market. I think this forum’s theme was very relevant as the lithium battery industry is becoming more mature, and hydrogen energy is beginning to take off. Combining these two topics can complement one another as sharing and panel discussions generate new ideas.”
