What was already China's largest global automotive testing and validation event saw record numbers of visitors heading through the doors in 2016 as the show opened for the first time in a much bigger venue, the Shanghai World Expo Exhibition & Convention Center in the Pudong business district of Shanghai.
The show was considerably bigger than in any previous year in China, and was filled with all the latest technologies designed to enable engineers to review and validate the technologies to ensure component and total vehicle reliability, safety, durability and quality. All the major global players were present at the show, which also runs every year in Europe, America and Korea, and in every other year in India.
Testing Expo China - Automotive founder Tony Robinson, CEO of organizing company UKIP Media & Events, said, "This show is in many respects the most singularly important show for car manufacturers and their suppliers. It's the event that enables them to utilize technologies that ultimately can contribute to the elimination of recalls, something that costs the global automotive industry billions of dollars annually. And it's the use of these technologies, which are all relatively new to the pre-production shakedown and development processes, that has enabled passenger car quality to reach the very high standards that we see today."
