Auto Shanghai

| Auto show

Auto Shanghai is a major international automobile exhibition held at the NECC (National Exhibition and Convention Center) in Shanghai. Since its inception in 1985, the fair has developed into the leading trade fair for the automotive industry in Asia and is one of the oldest international automobile exhibitions in China. It takes place every two years and offers a platform for automobile manufacturers, suppliers, and service providers to present their latest vehicle models, technologies, components, and innovations to a global audience. During the fair, companies will showcase their latest developments in the fields of electromobility, autonomous driving, networking, and sustainable mobility. In addition to vehicle manufacturers, companies from the fields of telematics, vehicle electronics, body construction, and drive technologies are also represented.

Auto Shanghai is an important meeting point for decision-makers, experts, and journalists from the automotive industry to exchange information on current trends and developments and to explore new business opportunities. In summary, Auto Shanghai is an indispensable event for everyone who works in the automotive industry and wants to be informed about the latest developments and technologies. The first four days of the trade fair are usually reserved for trade visitors and journalists.

On the whole the organisers welcomed on the 8 days of the fair, from 21. April to 28. April 2021, about 1000 exhibitors and 810000 visitors on the Auto in Shanghai.
