The Taipei AMPA/Autotronics Show, along with 2035 E-Mobility Taiwan, will continue as scheduled next week, show organizer TAITRA said in an open letter to exhibitors and attendees.


Let us know if your company is exhibiting or you’re planning to attend the show in Taipei this year. Aftermarket Intel Editor & Video Host Mark Phillips is looking for companies to highlight.


“We are delighted to extend our warmest invitation to the TAIPEI AMPA Show in Taiwan,” TAITRA says in the statement. “We understand recent seismic activity may have raised concerns, but we want to reassure you of the safety measures in place for your visit.”

Taiwan was struck by its strongest earthquake in 25 years on April 3, registering a magnitude of 7.2 and causing widespread damage in the eastern Hualien County.

“Following the earthquakes, the exhibition venue has activated relevant inspections and maintenance procedures to ensure the safety of the event, guaranteeing that the exhibition proceeds as scheduled with utmost safety and security,” TAITRA said.

Despite localized earthquakes, Taipei, the host city, remains largely unaffected, with all commercial activities, including the exhibition venue, continuing as usual, TAITRA says. The Taipei Nangang Exhibition Center has implemented rigorous inspections and maintenance protocols to guarantee the event’s safety and security, TAITRA added.

“Taiwan has a proven resilience in facing such natural occurrences,” the statement says.

“Our venue, Taipei Nangang Exhibition Center, upholds stringent safety standards, ensuring the security of all participants throughout the event. Your presence at the Taipei AMPA Exhibition is highly valued, and we are committed to providing a secure environment for your enjoyment and productivity. Our team will be on hand to assist you throughout your stay and ensure a seamless experience at one of Asia’s premier automotive exhibitions.”

The April 3 quake tragically claimed nine lives, injured more than 1,000 people. Rescue efforts continue, with authorities focusing on repairing infrastructure and ensuring the safety of residents in the aftermath of the disaster.

Taiwan is no stranger to earthquakes, being on a geologic fault line, making it prone to earthquakes. The island is located along the Pacific Ring of Fire, a zone notorious for seismic activity due to colliding tectonic plates.

“Our team will be on hand to assist you throughout your stay and ensure a seamless experience at one of Asia’s premier automotive exhibitions,” TAITRA’s statement says. “We invite you to join us in Taipei for an enriching event that promises valuable insights, networking opportunities, and memorable experiences in the automotive industry.

Aftermarket Intel Editor & Video Host Mark Phillips will be speaking as part of the show’s forum and also — as a first — leading a special tour for members of international media.

Let me know if your company is exhibiting or you’re planning to attend the show in Taipei this year. I’m always looking for great companies to feature at shows.
