Three weeks from now, Automechanika Ho Chi Minh City (AMHCMC), the leading international business platform for the automotive service sector in Vietnam will open at the Saigon Exhibition and Convention Center (SECC) in Vietnam from 25 – 27 April.

A year after the successful conclusion of its debut show, the 2018 edition will once again connect local and international industry players from the automotive sector, including approximately 360 exhibitors and 8,500 visitors from around the world.

Across the 9,200 sqm of exhibition space is a broad range of exhibits showcasing the latest trends and industry developments, as well as the equally unmissable fringe programme. Demonstrating its vital role in empowering local players to upgrade and overcome challenges, the programme’s Automechanika Academy, Repair & Maintenance Workshop and Product Presentation will be held concurrently with the show.

The show’s Automechanika Academy combines a range of opportunities for participants to share, network and adapt to the most up-to-date industry trends. Playing an essential part of the show, the event was introduced during the first edition of AMHCMC and has received astounding feedback. This year, it will continue to provide participants extended opportunities with an even more comprehensive agenda.

Led by experts from prestigious organisations, institutions, consultants and leading market players, six free-to-join seminars will be held on 25 April. Topics will range from the latest policies and auto industry developments, to material innovation and technological evolutions. Each of these seminars have been carefully structured to suit the unique needs of the region's automotive sector.

Meanwhile, the Repair & Maintenance Workshop will be held on the second day of the fair on 26 April, providing attendees with a chance to acquire advanced knowledge on collision repair and an understanding on international standards.

The workshop has been organised in cooperation with I-CAR Australia, the well-known educational body for technical training programmes dedicated to the field of collision repairing. During the course of the full day programme, two sessions will be held by Mr Mark Czvitkovits, CEO of I-CAR Australia.

Likewise, numerous international exhibitors, including Gulf Oil, PT Astra Otoparts and PT Foerch, will convey presentations about their latest product releases and technologies on 27 April, aiming to showcase their expertise to the visitors.
