The second edition of Automomechanika Ho Chi Minh City is scheduled to be held from April 25 to April 27. This time round, the leading automotive aftermarket show is expected to have a more comprehensive show structure to complement the growth in the country, as well as dedicated sections for motorcycle and tire competencies.
The event is organized by Messe Frankfurt in collaboration with Chan Chao International Co and Yorkers Exhibition Service Vietnam. Over 360 exhibitors are expected to participate in the event which will be held at the Saigon Exhibition and Convention Center in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam.
Vietnam has experienced significant economic development in recent years due to factors like increase in disposable income, growing population, and a stronger demand for more advanced technologies.
This has boosted the demand for automobiles in the country as consumers seek to raise their standard of living. Based on industry data, the sale of automobiles in Vietnam surpassed 300,000 for the first time in 2017, which was an increase of 24 percent YoY. This is expected to grow further in in 2017 and the coming years.
Vietnam is one of the biggest producers of natural rubber in the world And with increase in the number of automobiles, the tire sector is also gaining more importance. It has been projected that the tire business in Vietnam will reach USD 2.7 billion by 2020. Exhibitors will highlight a wide range of products and related services at the exhibition including wheels and rims, tire repair, used tires, tire management and systems, as well as sales equipment and tire storage solutions, will be part of the expo.
According to the Ministry of Transport of Vietnam, more than 45 million motorbikes are currently registered across the country. The Vietnam Association of Motorcycle Manufacturers (VAMM) released figures showing that 3.12 million units of motorcycles were sold in 2016, which is an increase of 9.5 percent over the figures for the previous year.
The event will also serve as a showcase for exhibitors from the auto industry including those specializing in parts and components, electronics and systems, accessories and customising, repair and maintenance, dealer and workshop management, car wash, care and reconditioning, alternative drive systems and digital solutions.
Fiona Chiew, deputy general manager of Messe Frankfurt (Shanghai), said that the most exciting aspect of Automechanika Ho Chi Minh City was that it combined global market trends with the local Vietnamese auto sector. One example is the Motorcycle and Tyre Competence section which is expected to be a huge hit as Vietnam has a strong presence in these two sectors.
Automechanika Ho Chi Minh City is one of the 17 Automechanika fairs which held in different parts of the world like Africa, Asia, Europe and North, Central and South America.
