India’s leading trade fair focused on technologies for automotive manufacturing - Automotive Engineering Show (AES) Chennai, has been postponed on account of the intensifying second wave. The decision has been taken in line with the advisories issued by the Indian government.




The magnitude of public health and safety issues posed by the rapidly escalating second outbreak of COVID-19 in India and advisories issued by the public health authorities, have led to the decision of the postponement of Automotive Engineering Show (AES) Chennai. Scheduled to take place from 1 – 3 July 2021 at the Chennai Trade Centre, the fair’s new dates will be announced after consultations with industry stakeholders, in the coming months.



Given the circumstances, the organisers feel that this is the responsible and best course of action, prioritising the health and safety of the industry and the community at large. Mr Raj Manek, Executive Director and Board Member, Messe Frankfurt Asia Holdings Ltd explains: “This is a difficult time for all of us and it is our joint responsibility to work in line with the local government’s efforts to take all precautionary measures.



 Right now, our focus is on the well-being of our exhibitors, visitors, employees and all stakeholders and pray for everyone to be safe and in good health. We are committed to the show and to the industry and will take a decision on the new dates once we have a more stable health situation along with a healthy business environment.”



The Road Ahead The recent thrust by the government on voluntary vehicle scrapping policy together with the shift towards safety, digitalisation and EV is expected to phase out old vehicles, and encourage fuel-efficient, environment-friendly alternatives.


The developments are critical towards the future growth of Indian automotive industry and aftermarket. The next edition of AES Chennai thus aims to draw attention to in-vehicle digitalisation, EV technologies, automation and robotics that is set to drive its way in the automotive manufacturing industry in the coming times.



Through a series of insightful interactions for the auto, bus & coach, and aftermarket industries, the organisers kept the industry closely linked through virtual mediums like webinars, online b2b match-matching, product demonstration and live knowledge sessions throughout the course of lockdown and will continue to keep the sector players connected on upcoming developments until the fair opens its doors in 2022.
