Automechanika Ho Chi Minh City 2019 will be returning for its third consecutive year from 28 February – 2 March.
The fair expects to host 380 international exhibitors across the automotive service industry, in the Saigon Exhibition and Convention Centre. The fair will stretch over 10,200 sqm of exhibiting space, where attendees will explore an array of the latest products and services that the industry has to offer.
Vietnam is one of the most dynamic countries in Southeast Asia, not only for its automotive industry but for the domestic economy in general. The country’s economy is experiencing continued growth and GDP is forecasted to rise another 6.6 per cent in 2019.
Another contributing element is the favourable policies recently implemented by the government, which have created more and more opportunities for international companies to enter the Vietnamese market.
Organisers of Automechanika Ho Chi Minh City anticipate that over 60% of the show’s exhibitors in 2019 will showcase their commercial vehicle related products, many of whom will be categorised under the new Truck Competence.
The show’s fringe programme events have also been tailored to complement Truck Competence and will shed light on the commercial vehicle market in Vietnam. This includes the Fleet Management Conference, which is geared toward fleet managers, operators, logistics owners, public transportation, vehicle manufacturers, and leasing and rental companies. The event will cover the use of big data for the commercial vehicle industry, to save the costs as well as increase workflow efficiencies by monitoring vehicles and tyres in real time.
