I’m Mark Phillips, editor and publisher of Aftermarket Intel. Whether you attend the Taipei AMPA / Autotronics Taipei 2021 show in Taiwan in person or virtually, your time will be well-spent.

I’ve been going to the show in-person over the past 12 years, and I can tell you that it’s one of the most exciting shows I’ve ever attended.

Of course, this year’s show, due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, is bound to look a little different. AMPA Online will be held on April 7- May 6, 2021, and is aiming to reconnect automotive industry peers from the globe.

There’s a lot here for virtual participants, whether you’re an exhibitor or visitor. There will be online catalogs and video displays, live chats, video conferences, a digital business cards exchange, and an optimized search bar based on each individual participant’s needs. There also will be online AMPA tours, livestream events, online procurement meetings and online new product launches. In person, Taipei AMPA will be held on April 14-17, 2021 at the Taipei Nangang Exhibition Hall 1.

The physical AMPA 2021 has special focus on electric vehicles and aftermarket services. And the global supply chain for the EV ecosystem and parts production will be on full display throughout the exhibition.

More than 800 exhibitors are expected to be at the show, exhibiting in more than 2,500 booths. Buyers and key decision makers account for over 85 percent of the visitors. Incorporating motorcycle exhibits into AMPA creates a one-stop purchasing location for all types of mobility needs.

In Taiwan, automotive parts manufacturers focus on diversified production, with a sharp focus on quality and an emphasis on the aftermarket. If you’ve never visited Taipei AMPA or Autotronics Taipei before, I highly recommend it.
