Activities at the National Exhibition and Convention Center, Shanghai, as well as many of the services and tools being offered to participants mirrored the latest trends and technological advancements spurred on by COVID-19.
For example, new integrated solutions powered by AMS Live created new lines of communication for onsite exhibitors connecting with global partners and prospective suppliers.

On top of this, livestreamed activities added a touch of excitement to the overall trade fair experience, producing innovative opportunities for companies to market their latest products, technologies and solutions to a wider online audience.
The show continued to promote the entire supply chain through seven dedicated sectors and three specialised zones. Synergy in Parts & Components, Tomorrow’s Service & Mobility and Electronics & Connectivity shone a light on digitalisation and the growing desires from consumers to see greener industry. The Diagnostics & Repair / Body & Paint, Accessories, Customising and REIFEN (Tyres & Wheels) also reflected many of the cross-collaborative opportunities in the aftermarket.
Elsewhere, the Auto Manufacturing, Services & Supply Chain, and Remanufacturing zones zoomed in on ground-breaking technologies and business models from industry leaders in their respective fields.
This year, organisers launched a range of new formats in the fringe programme for onsite and remote participants. The Automotive Aftermarket Summit, AIAG Auto Parts Purchasing Leadership and Suppliers Summit, China Automobile Dealers Used Car Industry Development Forum, China International Tyre Industry Conference, International Summit of Connected-Vehicle Policies and Regulations and Tomorrow’s Service & Mobility Summit were amongst events relaying the latest updates and developments throughout the upstream and downstream supply chain. On top of this, many conferences, forums and webinars also discussed the effects of COVID-19 in the market and deeply examined the road to industry recovery.
