A constant buzz of business discussions could be found in every corner of the Automotive Maintenance and Repair Expo (AMR), which was held from 21 – 24 March 2019 at Beijing’s New China International Exhibition Centre. With a solid foundation in the traditional repair and maintenance sector, AMR 2019 has expanded its product offerings in lubricant oil, car care, supply chain, new energy and aftersales service. Together with the enlarged Spare Parts Zone, overseas pavilions, buyer delegations and fringe programme, the show has once again received a distinctive response from the aftermarket industry.
On the show floor, 78 exhibiting companies reported carrying out product launches at their booths. This included 31 first-time global launches, as well as nine debuts in Asia, 27 in China and 20 at the show itself. This attracted trade visitors from all walks of the automotive industry to the show, including representatives from distributors, dealers, car manufacturers, new energy vehicle makers, insurance and finance, trading companies, 4S shops, workshops, chain stores, car care product retailers, lubricant oil changing centres, tyre shops, testing stations, institutions, trade associations, government bodies and auto spare parts malls.
