In view of the evolving pandemic situation in China, the government has escalated a number of COVID-19 prevention and control measures. To align with these efforts, Messe Frankfurt is rescheduling two of its Mobility & Logistics fairs in the country. CAPAS Chengdu will move to August 18–20, 2022, instead of the original timeslot (May 19–21, 2022). In addition, the Auto Maintenance and Repair Expo (AMR) will be held in Tianjin from March 23–26, 2023 (in place of May 2022, 27–30). 

“CAPAS and AMR are both benchmark business platform for the automotive industry across Southwest China and the Jing-jin-ji region, respectively,” said Stephan Buurma, Member of the Board of Management of Messe Frankfurt Group. “Therefore, it is important that we continue to support the Government’s direction in stemming the spread of COVID-19. Furthermore, the health and safety of our exhibitors, visitors and other participants are always our top priorities. And so, as a result of careful discussions with stakeholders, we have decided to reschedule both exhibitions to help maximise onsite experiences for all.”

In the upcoming months, the two shows will carry on planning and preparing pre-show events and activities that maintain market momentum ahead of the physical fairs. CAPAS will deliver a wide range of extended services like online seminars, online business matching, industry research, repair workshop visits and roadshows that offer more far-reaching and effective trading resources for players in the region. Meanwhile, leading up to the 2023 show dates, AMR will continue to offer AMR Online business matching services and organize a range of industry activities to maintain market momentum in the auto aftermarket.

Mindful of the COVID-19 outbreak, the organizers will establish appropriate safety parameters to support the wellbeing of all those at the shows. The implementation of these measures is to ensure the exhibition remains a secure platform for business.
