SHENZHEN TO HOST AUTOMECHANIKA SHANGHAI 2022
The December 2022 show is moving to a new location
The 17th edition of Automechanika Shanghai will move to the Shenzhen World Exhibition and Convention Center from the 20th to the 23rd of December 2022 as part of a special arrangement.
Show organisers say the relocation provides participants with more flexibility in their planning and will allow the fair to meet the industry’s expectations for in-person trade and business encounters.
“As the organisers of such a highly influential show, our top priorities are to protect the wellbeing of participants and stimulate market activity,” Messe Frankfurt (HK) Ltd Deputy General Manager, Fiona Chiew, said.
“Therefore, holding this year’s fair in Shenzhen is an interim solution while the market in Shanghai continues to evolve.
“It is a sound alternative for Automechanika Shanghai thanks to the city’s position in the automotive industry and the venue’s integrated trade fair amenities.”
“On top of speaking to a number of supporting organisations and partners, we understand that many exhibitors and buyers are eager to reconnect,” China National Machinery Industry International Co Ltd General Manager, Li Zhang, said.
“The determining factors for the relocation of this year’s show are the feedback from our customers and the market information that we have carefully examined.
“I would like to thank all our stakeholders for seconding the move and look forward to welcoming you all to the show in Shenzhen.”
Shenzhen is a technology hub contributing to the Greater Bay Area automotive manufacturing cluster. As one of China’s leading business complexes in the region, the Shenzhen World Exhibition and Convention Center will play host to Automechanika Shanghai – Shenzhen Edition.
The facility offers state-of-the-art infrastructure that can house the show’s expected 3,500 exhibitors from 21 countries and regions.
The event is organised by Messe Frankfurt (Shanghai) Co Ltd and the China National Machinery Industry International Co Ltd (Sinomachint).
