AMR 2021 Concludes with New Services and Zones Mapping out Opportunities
The Auto Maintenance and Repair Expo (AMR) closed its doors 27 April 2021 at Beijing’s New China International Exhibition Centre after successfully presenting a meeting point for China’s vehicle maintenance and repair sector. Across the four-day show, exhibitors and fairgoers recognised the new specialised zones that reflected innovation in the automotive aftermarket. There was also high praise towards AMR Online, the show’s latest service connecting domestic and international markets.
Key figures for AMR 2021:
• Visits: 46,352
• Exhibitors: 952
• Space: 90,000 sqm
• 186 onsite-to-online business matching meetings through AMR Online
• 36 concurrent events
• 406 new product launches
Over the last 38 years, AMR has established its prominence in North China’s Jing-jin-ji region (Beijing, Tianjin and Heibei) as a one-stop sourcing platform for the automotive repair and maintenance sector.
This year, participants admired the show’s initiatives to highlight market trends. On top of its core coverage of Auto maintenance, Repair, Parts & components and Car care, the show introduced five new zones, including Green repairs, Profit solution, Automotive culture and customising, New energy vehicle aftermarket and Commercial vehicle display. Together, the range of exhibits amplified the rising need for innovative technologies and end-user market transformation.
“Spotting how the automotive value chain is digitally shifting, we realised the repair and maintenance sector is also evolving to cope with these dynamic changes. Therefore, we introduced additional zones and AMR Online to accentuate the developments and cater to the latest industrial needs,” said Ms Fiona Chiew, Managing Director of Messe Frankfurt Traders-Link (Beijing) Co Ltd.
As a whole, 952 exhibitors showcased their newest products, not only for the traditional repair and maintenance sectors but also cutting-edge technologies relating to digital transformation and green movements. Displays included emissions control, environmental protection, customisation, new energy, AI, IoT and emerging business models.
