The show concluded with strong international support across the automotive supply chain

After a two-year hiatus, Automechanika Ho Chi Minh City returned as one of Vietnam’s most resilient automotive industry events recently.
The exhibition took place from the 29th of June to the 1st of July 2022 with bolstered online services through V-Connect that successfully connected the wider global community.
Praise also extended to the show’s unique range of events that vibrantly captured opportunities in the local market and offered vital educational touchpoints for aftermarket service providers.
Key figures from Automechanika Ho Chi Minh City 2022 included:
• 173 exhibitors from 21 countries and regions  
• 10,000 sqms of indoor and outdoor exhibition space 
• Six country and region pavilions
• 10,112 visitors from 42 countries and regions 
• 570,904 impressions on V-Connect from 90 countries and regions
• Seven concurrent fringe programme events  
“We channelled a lot of our efforts into championing the sustained growth and development of Vietnam’s automotive industry,” Messe Frankfurt (HK) Ltd Deputy General Manager, Fiona Chiew, said.
“We geared many of our onsite activities and online solutions to highlight domestic opportunities to global audiences. And so, it was very promising to see a solid response from overseas professionals taking part in the physical show and engaging with services on V-Connect.”  
During the three-day show, there was a strong sense of optimism about the local and regional market prospects, with many industry players keen to get back to business and interact with onsite activities.
For the first time, V-Connect was a vital part of the Automechanika Ho Chi Minh City’s toolkit, with many appreciating remote gateways to onsite exhibitors, conferences and workshops.
Australia, Cambodia, China, Germany, India, Indonesia, Japan, Korea, Malaysia, Pakistan, Singapore, Taiwan, Thailand, the UAE, the US and Vietnam took up a large proportion of registered visitors from 90 countries and regions.
Analytics from online users suggest that the most popular sectors explored included OEMs, passenger vehicles and aftermarket solutions. Importantly, these interest areas lined up with the show’s main highlights in Automotive Manufacturing and Automation, Automotive Services and Maintenance, and Accessories and Customising.  
Across the arena, a collection of educational and experiential events zeroed in on Vietnam’s distinct trends and needs in the automotive industry.  
Elsewhere, the Auto Service Day was one of the most popular activity areas at the Saigon Exhibition and Convention Center.   
The fair is co-organised by Messe Frankfurt (HK) Ltd, Chan Chao International Co Ltd and Yorkers Exhibition Service Vietnam.
