The new year again brings a range of opportunities to either exhibit at or attend automotive aftermarket shows around the world. We take a look at one of Asia’s mega-shows, the 2019 Taipei AMPA 6-in-1 show, which is comprised of: Taipei International Auto Parts & Accessories Show (Taipei AMPA), Taipei Automobile Electronics Show (AutoTronics Taipei), Taiwan International Intelligent Transportation Show (Taiwan ITS), and Taiwan International Electric Vehicle Show (Taiwan EVS) will be held on April 24-27, 2019, while Taiwan International Motorcycle Industry Show (Motorcycle Taiwan) and Taiwan International Car Tuning & Car Care Show (Taiwan Car Tuning) will be held April 25-28. 

The six exhibitions will assemble together at Nangang Exhibition Center Hall 1 and Hall 2 for the first time. Expecting 1,530 exhibiting companies to occupy 4,550 booths, the event will be larger than ever, show organizers say. 

The six-in-one show provide a comprehensive display of Taiwan’s automotive industry supply chain from engines, suspensions, transmissions, brakes, headlights, batteries, motors to IoV applications. The best hardware manufacturing combined with the latest intelligent software applications form the most important automotive purchasing platform in Asia. 

I have visited and reported on the Taipei shows since 2013, and they get bigger and better every year. If you’ve never visited Taiwan before, it’s an industrialized, modern island with a highly educated, hard-working populace. Much of what the island produces is exported and auto parts are no exception. Taiwan has about 24 million people in a land area about a third of the state of Ohio. Taiwan sits at the beginning of the manufacturing process for many auto parts companies, who come to the island to source a range of parts. 

I highly recommend visiting the shows. You can find out more here.
