According to the statistics analysis by CAAM, China’s automobile market presented slight growth in 2011 with automobile production and sales rising to over 18 million respectively. In 2011, the production and sales of passenger vehicles were both over 14 million, or to be specific 14,485,300 and 14,472,400 respectively, a year-on-year increase by 4.23% and 5.19%. Both of the growth rates are above the industry level. 2012 is the beginning of the “12th Five-Year-Plan” as well as the start for achieving new targets. The growth of China’s equipment manufacturing industry is based on the theme of scientific development, to adhere to the path of new industrialization, to implement the strategy of “adjustment & transformation, innovation & upgrading”, to emphasize on fostering strategic emerging industries and to achieve leapfrog development. The State Council has prioritized the new-energy automobile as one of the strategic emerging industries, offering political support to the development of the automotive industry. It can be expected that the national and international automotive industries will strive to achieve technological innovation and leapfrog development.
Auto Shanghai is nurtured by China’s huge automotive market. With a history of 27 years, Auto Shanghai 2013 has grown up to one of the most influential auto events in the world, an important platform of trade and information exchange for the national and international automotive industry and an important carrier to lead automobile consumption and industrial development. Debuting as China’s first auto event in Shanghai in 1985, Auto Shanghai had only 73 exhibitors with a show scale of 15,000 sq.m., it attracted great attention and care from all the relevant parties. Along with China’s entrance into the WTO, China’s automotive industry accelerated its development. With 9 editions and 18 years’ growth, in 2003, Auto Shanghai successfully moved to the Shanghai New International Expo Center and reformed its organizing body and became a member of International A-Level Auto Shows. In 2005, the international automobile tycoons, known as “6+3″, all participated in Auto Shanghai. The mainstream domestic automobile enterprises all regard Auto Shanghai as a top global auto show, and make great effort in showcasing their products, thus elevating the overall level of Auto Shanghai. In 2007, a number of spectacular global “auto debuts” were first staged at Auto Shanghai. In 2009, the basic concept of “people-orientation” and “innovation”, and detail-oriented management featured at the auto event. In 2011, Auto Shanghai attracted 2,000 automotive enterprises from 20 countries and regions. The number of exhibiting vehicles amounted to 1,100 (900 domestic, 200 overseas), including 75 global auto debuts. The show scale of Auto Shanghai 2011 reached 230,000 sq.m. It attracted 715,000 visitors, 9,872 journalists from over 2,700 domestic and international media representatives. All these figures set up new records for Auto Shanghai itself as well as China’s exhibition industry.
At the very moment when the global automotive industry is undergoing a new revolution and China’s automotive revitalization plan is issued, Auto Shanghai 2013 will again stage an impressive and classic auto event in the spring of 2013, with the support from all the automobile tycoons. Auto Shanghai 2013 is expected to occupy all 17 indoor exhibition halls (13 halls used in 2011) and outdoor temporary exhibition halls, and the estimated show scale reaches 280,000 sq.m. As most automobile makers customarily prefer their new car release to be on the first day of the exhibition, the organizer will only arrange one media day (April 20) and expand the media release time to 8 p.m. Subsequently the exhibition dates will be increased by one day, i.e. from 21st to 29th April 2013 (21st and 22nd for professional visitors, 23rd to 29th for the public), leaving visitors more ample time.
The theme of Auto Shanghai 2013 is “Innovation for a Better Life”. Innovation will lead to industry development, which creates a better life. Auto Shanghai has not only testified to the development of China’s automobile industry, but showcased a better lifestyle brought about by green technology. As one of the most important international auto shows, Auto Shanghai will bear the dreams of global automotive players, and is burdened with the responsibility to promote the healthy development of China’s self-owned brands, as well as direct auto culture and reflect the public’s aspiration for auto lifestyle.
Auto Shanghai 2013 will keep on displaying updated automotive technology and focusing on the new trends and highlights in the global automotive industry. Adhering to the basic management and service concept of “continual innovation” and “people orientation”, the organizer will actively promote the concept of energy-saving and environmentally-friendly technologies. Various supporting activities that promote automotive knowledge and explore automotive civilization will be incorporated into the event. Auto Shanghai will not only promote new technologies, release new cars and exchange the latest information, but it will also exemplify an innovative model in exhibition management and service.
We believe the Auto Shanghai 2013 will deliver a new miracle as well as a huge contribution to the automotive and exhibition industries, where the public can appreciate on-site the innovative concepts of auto manufacturing, the upgrading of auto technologies, the amazing auto designs, and intelligent auto control systems.
We hereby sincerely invite automotive enterprises domestic and abroad to participate in Auto Shanghai, to display their strengths, to share the latest development and to explore industry development. We also welcome the national and international media to report on the exhibition and the latest developments in the global automotive industry. We are grateful to the attention and support given to this great auto event from all the relevant parties.
