GROWTH AHEAD FOR AUTOMECHANIKA HO CHI MINH CITY
Automechanika Ho Chi Minh City looks to build on successful inaugural edition with even bigger show planned for 2018
The second edition of Automechanika Ho Chi Minh City will open its doors once again from 25 – 27 April 2018, with an even more ambitious show planned following a successful first year.
Organisers say the three-day fair has now become Vietnam’s leading regional trade fair for the automotive service industry, which is complementing the country’s position as a frontier for growth within the sector.
Organised by Messe Frankfurt, Chan Chao International Co Ltd and Yorkers Exhibition Service Vietnam, Automechanika Ho Chi Minh City 2018 is expected to house 360 exhibitors and welcome 8,500 visitors at the Saigon Exhibition and Convention Center in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam.
To help build on last year’s positivity and to help match the Vietnamese market trends, the 2018 edition of the show will feature a brand new Tyre Competence which labels exhibiting companies from the tyre sector accordingly. This allows fairgoers to quickly identify these exhibitors for improved sourcing efficiency.
Meanwhile, Automechanika Ho Chi Minh City’s Motorcycle Competence returns once again after its introduction at last year’s debut. As one of the most popular aspects of the show, and with motorcycles being by far the most popular means of transportation in the country, Motorcycle Competence aims to suit the unique needs of the local industry, whilst serving the global auto sector at the same time.
Elsewhere during the course of the show, each of the comprehensive exhibiting categories have been tailored to suit every corner of the auto industry, including parts and components; electronics and systems; accessories and customising; repair and maintenance; dealer and workshop management; car wash, care and reconditioning; and alternative drive systems and digital solutions.
“The exciting aspect of Automechanika Ho Chi Minh City is that it’s combining global market trends with the local Vietnamese auto sector,” Messe Frankfurt (Shanghai) Deputy General Manager, Fiona Chiew, said.
“For instance, the Motorcycle and Tyre Competence are set to be a huge hit for the fair, purely because Vietnam has a strong foothold in these areas.”
Automechanika Ho Chi Minh City is one of 17 Automechanika fairs held in Africa, Asia, Europe and North, Central and South America.
