On the 18th of February 2023, exhibitors and visitors waved goodbye to the 17th edition of Automechanika Shanghai, hosted at the Shenzhen World Exhibition and Convention Center.
Event organisers stated that all signs point to a surge of market activity in the global automotive supply chain, with visitors from 89 countries and regions attending the show.
Through innovations across the fairground, networking activities and events, the four-day exhibition also reflected many rising trends around vehicle connectivity and new energy, and relinked ties between the overseas and domestic supply chain.

A renewed sense of anticipation was felt all around the fairground, with numerous overseas and domestic partners reuniting for the first time since the previous edition in 2020. Overall, the event saw a 33 percent increase in visitors, a true indication that the market is open for business and trade.
Exhibitors keenly showcased their latest innovations in line with an industry-wide shift towards environmental sustainability, autonomy, intelligence and new mobility.

Participants also praised the show’s take on the brand’s Innovation4Mobility concept. In the Showcase, the Innovation4Mobility Mainstage, Green Repair Zone, A New Era of Commercial Vehicles, and Motorsports and High Performance areas drew attention to key market segments in China with strong growth and development potential.
This year, a total of 58 fringe programme events ran concurrently with the main show, of which all covered the latest global trends and advancements in the market.
Once again, AMS Live was a key communication gateway empowering remote and onsite users to explore purchasing decisions and capture the latest market information. On-demand video content and exhibitor searches on the platform remained open until the 17th of March 2023.
“After a two-year hiatus, it was very rewarding to see the fairground burst into action and transform into an assembly point for the overseas and domestic market,” Messe Frankfurt (HK) Ltd General Manager, Fiona Chiew, said.
“The Innovation4Mobility Showcase was a triumph as it offered a wider perspective on new mobility solutions, market trends and policy updates.
“Showcases and discussions also echoed the focus on next-generation technologies from exhibitors across the show floor. For the show’s return up north in November, we will further build upon the concept to act as a window into tomorrow’s industry.”
The next edition of Automechanika Shanghai will take place from the 29th of November to the 2nd of December 2023 at the National Exhibition and Convention Center (Shanghai). The event is organised by Messe Frankfurt (Shanghai) Co Ltd and the China National Machinery Industry International Co Ltd (Sinomachint).
