Fifth edition of CAPAS opens

The fifth edition of Chengdu International Trade Fair for Automotive Parts and Aftermarket Services (CAPAS) is opening its doors from 24 May 2018.

CAPAS has established itself as a leading service platform in the southwest region, continuing to provide extensive opportunities to participants. This year is expected to gather around 583 exhibitors, which has increased by 12% compared to 2017, and occupying 45,000 sqm of exhibition space. Over 20,000 international visitors are expected to attend.

A number of big names are gathered in the three-day show, including AXOT, Botny, Chengdu Zhong Xing Wang, Fix Auto, Fengriling Filters, FMG, and Ziyang CRRC Electrical Technology.

Apart from China, other exhibitors are from France, Germany, Hong Kong, Japan, Korea, Spain, Taiwan and the US.

Speaking about the fair’s fifth edition, Fiona Chiew, deputy general manager of Messe Frankfurt (Shanghai) Co Ltd said, ‘CAPAS is committed to serving as a business platform for the automotive industry in Southwest China. On this platform, many Chinese and international brands are able to introduce high quality products and innovations into the area; while local exhibitors from Sichuan and Chongqing regions can reveal their strengths. They have an opportunity to expand business network, and also attract foreign trade and investments.’

Since the debut show, CAPAS has been closely following the pace of the rapidly developing southwest automotive market and facilitates a regional marketplace with extensive resources. The fair’s six theme zones gather products from the entire supply chain, and numerous fringe programme events are in place to highlight hot topics.
