Automechanika Ho Chi Minh City has connected the world’s automotive industry players together with its auto service sector in Vietnam.
After Automechanika came to the country for the first time last year, the show’s second edition closed its doors in April to 8,504 visitors and 360 international exhibitors , who converged across 9,200sqm of exhibition space.
‘This year’s Automechanika Ho Chi Minh City has been even more successful than we could have anticipated,’ said Fiona Chiew, deputy general manager of show organiser Messe Frankfurt (Shanghai) Co Ltd. ‘We’ve created a melting pot of innovation for the local market here in Vietnam, whilst also pulling in a good blend of high quality international exhibitors. This combination means the show has been a real catalyst in putting Vietnam’s automotive industry on the map, and rightly so.’
The show highlighted how much potential there currently is in the automotive sector, both in Vietnam and across the ASEAN region. A strong number of trade visitors attended from Vietnam and its surrounding regions (89%), each of which had the opportunity to explore some of the very latest developments from leading global players across the entire auto supply chain.
At the same time, a growing level of internationalism was present through two new overseas pavilions on the show floor. A total of eight dedicated areas shone a spotlight on exhibitors from China, Germany, Korea, Malaysia, Singapore, Taiwan, Thailand and the UAE. All in all, 89% of exhibitors at this year’s fair came from 17 different countries and regions. These included brands in the form of Autel, Elringklinger, Euroricambi, Gold Phoenix, and many more.
