Onsite buyer:
Mr XiaoBin Li, General Manager, Qingdao Julun Tire Co Ltd



“Compared with the other exhibitions I have visited, Automechanika Shanghai continues to out-perform in terms of its scale, comprehensive coverage of the supply chain and reach in the international market. In addition to exploring the exhibitors in REIFEN (Tyres & Wheels), we are also interested in original equipment and other related products and repair parts in the customising sector across the aftermarket. We have been able to find all of this at the fairground.”
 



Online buyer:
Mr Gary Parker, Product Manager, BaxtersMTQ (Australia)



“Our company is part of the BAPCOR group, Australia’s largest automotive aftermarket group, supplying auto electricals, diesel fuel injectors and turbochargers. It was our first time using the online matching service as we had to attend the show online this year. We were offered a matchmaking package, allowing us to get in contact with up to five suppliers. The experience was efficient and well organised. Overall, it was very rewarding and useful to our business.”
 



Premium Buyer Club:
Mr Qiang Chen, Founder/Chairman, Zhejiang Hydrogen Valley New Energy Vehicle Co Ltd



“I am impressed by the strong turnout of participating companies amidst the pandemic. Automechanika Shanghai gives us a comprehensive sourcing experience and an opportunity to connect with top global auto parts suppliers who are showcasing their latest products. We are in research and development on top of a manufacturer for hydrogen energy vehicles.



In these aspects, the show has met my purchasing needs in the new energy sector. To embrace the rise of new energy vehicles and tomorrow’s service and mobility, the show has become an important destination for networking and exploring new technologies and achievements that are setting out development trends for the industry to follow.”
 




Fringe programme attendee in the China Automobile Dealers Used Car Industry Development Forum 2020:
Mr Zhao Chao, Head of Development and Operation Department, Shanghai Automotive Repair Co Ltd


“With the used car market continuing to create great value in the domestic industry, I wish to explore the prospects for my business. All the speakers today were very knowledgeable and portrayed a strong level on understanding about the segment. I found the content discussed truly reflected current trends.



I also appreciate the show’s hybrid format, especially during this difficult time as it provided convenient functions like today’s livestream of the event for those unable to be present at the fairground.”
 




Parts & Components exhibitor:
Mr Terry Zeng, COO, New Sorl Auto Parts



“Under the prevailing ‘Dual Circulation’ policy in China, Automechanika Shanghai further stimulates the internal circulation of China’s automotive industry, boosting market confidence at the same time. As a professional show with a strong reputation, we always meet high-quality suppliers. It is always an excellent opportunity for us to increase our brand awareness, speak to new clients and collect industry information.”



 
Electronics & Connectivity exhibitor:
Ms Fanny Zheng, Sales Department Manager, Zhejiang Songtian Automotive Motor System Co Ltd



“We have switched our focus to the domestic market. In fact, we have recently set up two new subsidiaries to develop new products and expand our existing portfolio for new energy vehicles. I am thankful that the organisers established AMS Live. It allowed overseas buyers to contact us remotely in real-time and understand our products through watching our videos.



I am optimistic about the future automotive market as more consumers are switching to private transport for safety reasons, which will stimulate the growth of the aftermarket.”
 



Tomorrow’s Service & Mobility exhibitor:
Mr Zhengzhong Wang, Vice President, Changhui Group



“As a leading automotive trade event, Automechanika Shanghai draws in a lot of highly important clients for our company. In response to the COVID-19 outbreak, the organisers acted quickly to launch AMS Live. This hybrid format was very convenient and quite a unique experience for both exhibitors and visitors.



With the passenger car market slowing because of the pandemic, our company adjusted its strategy to approach more OEMs. Our ongoing technical reform and innovation, as well as the acceleration of automated production processes and new product development will help us during the post-pandemic industry recovery.”
 



Israel pavilion:
Ms Vicky Wang, Portfolio Manager, Eyesight Technologies



“The purpose for joining Automechanika Shanghai was to increase Eyesight’s exposure in the market and forge new business networks locally. We believe the country is a promising market as it is already quickly recovering from the pandemic, and I think the show will continue to play a critical role in facilitating industry development. The pandemic itself has brought about a number of challenges and opportunities.



To respond, we have to focus on improving product applications and customisation more than ever to cope with rising needs. Our company’s new driver monitoring system can operate even with the driver wearing a mask or glasses. A lot of potential buyers came to our booth today enquiring about our products.”
 



Diagnostics & Repair / Body & Paint exhibitor:
Mr Yu Yeqing, President, EAE Automotive Equipment Co Ltd  


“Compared to other shows that we participate in overseas, we are more pleased with the results gained from Automechanika Shanghai. Its internationalism and professionalism are reflected in all aspects of the show. Its new digital platform also facilitated business expansion.



Our sales team were able to utilise this efficient tool to discuss further business opportunities with remote clients that were not able to join physically.”
 



Accessories exhibitor:
Mr Bruce Lu, Vice General Manager, Jiangsu Shuangxing Color Plastic New Materials Co Ltd



“Through Automechanika Shanghai, we can access potential customers and forge closer ties with returning ones. Exhibitors here can leverage its global stage to showcase new products and technologies, which promotes a healthy level of market competition and accelerate research and development. The show is highly recognised in the automotive ecosystem, and we are optimistic about the industry’s inevitable bounceback.”
 





Customising exhibitor:
Mr Yuan Wenxing, Vice President, GUANGDONG EVK AUTO CULTURE CLUB


“We want companies to know that there are still many opportunities in the auto parts and used car exports market, despite challenges brought on by the pandemic. Many Chinese auto parts enterprises see great potential in the likes of the African auto industry.



Under the ‘Dual Circulation’ policy, we have helped companies use our club’s resources to build stronger business networks abroad. What’s more, buyers at the show this year have been very patient and have taken the time to communicate with exhibitors in-depth. So, overall, I am very satisfied with the results.”
 




Supply Chain and Chain Store zone:
Ms Yolanda Wang, Deputy General Manager, Aerospace Siyuan Automotive Material Technology (Shanghai) Co Ltd


“Through AMS Live, we arranged several online business meetings to boost our presence in an international environment. This year, the show expanded its range of fringe programme events, further integrating the vertical and horizontal supply chain, to which we learnt more about the current and future markets.



We also explored emerging areas in the customising sector that inspired us a lot. This year, we have confronted a number of challenges from the pandemic; we are investing a lot of time into our business strategy and I believe breakthroughs in research and development will play a key role in our recovery and growth.”
 




REIFEN (Tyres & Wheels) exhibitor:
Mr Sun Yongbiao, Product Manager, Zodo Tire Co Limited


“This is the first time that we have taken advantage of the show’s matchmaking activities. Through this value-added service, we have been able to access numerous high-quality buyers. It is very efficient and has saved me a lot of time in my pre-show planning and onsite meetings. I would say it is a win-win for both for suppliers and buyers.”
 



Business matching exhibitor:
Mr GaoWen Li, Marketing Product Manager, Qingdao Copton Technology Co Ltd


“This is the first time that we have taken advantage of the show’s matchmaking activities. Through this value-added service, we have been able to access numerous high-quality buyers. It is very efficient and has saved me a lot of time in my pre-show planning and onsite meetings. I would say it is a win-win for both for suppliers and buyers.”






The next edition of Automechanika Shanghai will take place from 24 – 27 November 2021. The event is organised by Messe Frankfurt (Shanghai) Co Ltd and the China National Machinery Industry International Co Ltd (Sinomachint).
