Automechanika Shanghai announces new show dates: 1 to 4 December 2022

3 Dec 2021

Players throughout the global automotive ecosystem can look forward to the 17th edition of Automechanika Shanghai returning on 1 to 4 December 2022 at the National Exhibition and Convention Center (Shanghai). The show was initially put on hold in a swift response to the country’s efforts on containing the spread of emerging COVID-19 cases. Nonetheless, the fair offered several value-added services to support players across the value chain during the interim period.

Ms Fiona Chiew, Deputy General Manager, Messe Frankfurt (HK) Ltd, said: “Over the last few weeks, we have considered a number of factors during our discussions with all the relevant parties on the new show date. These include further consultations with the authorities, in addition to assessing an appropriate timeslot in the global Automechanika brand calendar. In this respect, holding the show from 1 to 4 December 2022 is the most viable outcome for all. We appreciate the support, patience and understanding of everyone in the automotive ecosystem during this interval.”

Mr Xia Wendi, Chairman of China National Machinery Industry International Co Ltd, said: “Owing to China’s strong export market and healthy domestic demand, the country’s automobile and car parts markets remain strong. In this regard, we are fully confident in future prospects. We are committed to constructing a trade fair platform where high levels of flexibility, efficiency, focus and sustainability are central to serving industry needs. I believe this will propel the entire automotive supply chain towards higher levels of quality.”

Automechanika Shanghai is one of the most influential global trade fairs in the automotive industry, offering an arena for marketing, trade, networking and education. Each year, the show effectively communicates developments in the macro operating environment and filters them into activities across the show floor and fringe programme. As such, its comprehensive coverage can bridge players across the domestic and international supply chain. From this perspective, the fair will continue supporting business development by exploring effective ways to connect the automotive industry in the year leading up to the new show dates.

By the same token, Automechanika Shanghai had a duty to bring industry players together during the original show dates, and a strong response on AMS Live further highlighted the rising need for a resilient digital toolkit while global markets recover.

Buyers could begin sourcing from over 2,900 potential suppliers on 10 November. This further opened up on 24 to 27 November 2021, where players fully leveraged AI matchmaking, lead management tools and real-time analytics. So far, the platform has marked 226,400 online visits (in terms of page views) from 135 countries and regions, such as China, Germany, Russia, Turkey, and the US. Functions on the platform will remain open until 15 December allowing users more time to explore the show’s aggregated resources. Please follow the link to access AMS Live:

Over 50 video recordings and livestreamed events on AMS Live also proved immensely popular. For example, 2,049 viewers tuned into How AIoT is Transforming the Active Safety of Commercial Vehicles. Elsewhere, a Dialogue with Automotive Entrepreneurs (Shanghai Stop) collected an audience of 2,440. Several exhibitors also leveraged the show’s global reach by holding their product demonstrations and launches on the platform.

On top of this, a dedicated team from the organisers have produced 1,900 appointments and recommendations on Match Up since its launch in August.
