Jason Cao, senior general manager of Messe Frankfurt (HK), said, “The increased level of support for Automechanika Shanghai demonstrates the broad and deep influence the show has within the industry. Our strong efforts in promoting the show in emerging markets and extending our product line depth have been rewarded with gaining supporters from Hebei and Jiangsu in China as well as internationally in Turkey, which will have a positive impact on both exhibitors and visitors this year.”
