The show will take place in March 2023

Automechanika Kuala Lumpur will spotlight how manufacturing, electrification, connectivity and services are transforming the Malaysian automotive industry across the 16th to the 18th of March 2023 at the Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre (KLCC).
“With greater mobility in and around Malaysia, we have had an enthusiastic response from our network wanting to explore the country’s import and export activities through Automechanika Kuala Lumpur’s global resources,” Messe Frankfurt (HK) Ltd Deputy General Manager, Fiona Chiew, said.
“We are glad their feedback aligns with local interests to expand vehicle sales, thereby accelerating skilled aftermarket services. It also includes enhancing automotive manufacturing, in addition to speeding up the electrification and digitalisation of the automotive industry as a whole.”
Upon returning to the exhibition calendar, Automechanika Kuala Lumpur will highlight key trends in fields that the Government considers highly important for advancing the automotive industry. This includes sectors like automotive manufacturing and automation, the Internet of Things (IoT), logistics and electromobility.
As a result, the show will harmonise with these developmental areas in specialised zones across the fairground. Exhibitors in the Auto Service and Maintenance, IoT, Automotive Manufacturing and Automation, and Commercial Vehicle zones will benefit from dedicated signage and displays to encourage more business exchange from visitors targeting the specific highlight. 
In addition, a range of informative fringe events will complement themes across the show floor. For instance, with more vehicles on the road, the show aims to tackle the shortage of skilled labour in repair services and bring providers up to speed with smart repair and diagnostics during the Collision Repair Training Workshop. 
Through drawing upon viable international use cases during the Digitalisation and Electrification Conference, industry experts will examine the future landscape of mobility and innovative ways to enhance green development. Other knowledge-sharing events include the Fleet Management Conference and Automotive Manufacturing and Transformation Conference. 
Meanwhile, with Malaysia’s borders opening up Automechanika Kuala Lumpur’s online activities aim to connect domestic and overseas professionals before the physical show. By introducing both parties ahead of time, the intention is to deepen onsite business exchanges and encounters. In this regard, Match Up offers personalised and targeted year-round business matchmaking opportunities. So far, the dedicated service team has arranged more than 2,000 meetings between buyers and suppliers from over 50 countries and regions since its launch less than a year ago.

Furthermore, the show has also introduced a new YouTube channel, Play it! Channel MY, as a valuable resource for players wishing to learn more about local customs. The content not only delves into Malaysian business etiquette but also touches upon market updates, do-it-yourself car care, repair and maintenance, as well as hosts impromptu street interviews about current trends.
