Three Themed Zones of CIAAR 2018 Welcome New Exhibitors and Products to Create New Purchasing Experience

The 16th China International Auto Air-conditioning and Refrigeration Exhibition (CIAAR 2018), a one-stop trade and exchange platform serving China’s auto air-conditioning industry, will be held at Shanghai Everbright Convention & Exhibition Center during November 13-15. The exhibition is co-organized by ITE Asia Exhibitions Limited, Shanghai Gehua Exhibition Service Co., Ltd. and Shanghai ITE Gehua Exhibition Service Co., Ltd. Thanks to the fast growth advantages of China’s automotive industry, the exhibition sees significant increase in the number of exhibitors, which is expected to reach close to 500 this year. The total exhibition area will be 25,000 square meters, and nearly 10,000 professional buyers from across the globe will participate in the exhibition.


As an emerging economy in the automotive field, China’s output of automobiles in the past two years kept increasing facilitated by the improving influence of Chinese automobile manufacturers and international enterprise acquisitions. In 2017, China’s automobile output accounted for 29.85% of the global output, ranking No.1 in the world, and far overtaking that of major traditional automobile manufacturers like Europe, America and Japan. And, as an important supply production industry for the automotive industry, automotive parts will experience high demand driven by the increasing automobile output.


As China’s professional exhibition for the auto air-conditioning industry, CIAAR closely follows the trends of the market and industrial development, supports exhibitors to develop overseas and foreign markets, and has established its position as a leading exhibition for the auto air-conditioning industry. In 2018, leading brands will all show up in the exhibition, including Thermo King, Carrier, Songzhi, Zhongcheng, Dyne, Matsushita, Highly, Shuangkai, Zhenwei, Guangyu, Friendlink, Behr, Kedali, Inno-Tech, Khccac, Berlin, Jinkehua, Su Licheng, Rad, Jisun, Getes, Rifusen, Benling, Zhongdi, Elite and Weilong.


Serving market needs, three new product zones create new purchasing experience


As the “vane” of the auto air-conditioning industry in China, the exhibition scope of Shanghai International Auto Air-conditioning and Refrigeration Exhibition covers the entire auto air-conditioning industry and the peripheral industry chain, from automotive air-conditioning products for passenger cars and commercial vehicles, to parts for automotive air-conditioners like compressor, condenser, fan and air-conditioning duct, and to refrigeration technologies such as refrigerant and refrigeration equipment, perfectly demonstrating relevant products of the industry. In addition, the exhibition this year will add three new special product zones to further enrich product lines and better serve customer groups in the areas of new energy vehicle, coach and refrigerated transportation.


The freezing and refrigerated transportation equipment and materials zone is strongly supported by Shanghai Cold Chain Association. With the rapid development of China’s refrigerated transportation industry, the market demand for refrigerated transportation devices has been increasing. Vehicle refrigeration unit manufacturers represented by Thermo King, Carrier, Rifusen, Jinxiang, Hawtai and Mingtai will demonstrate their excellent temperature control solutions for various transportation systems. Shanghai Cold Chain Association has relatively high industrial influence in eastern China, with its members distributing in the freezing and refrigeration, refrigerated transportation, and cold chain logistics area. The association will also hold an industry summit at the exhibition, and the topics will involve the future development and application of vehicle refrigeration units and technologies.


The auto thermal management system and parts zone is themed on “energy-saving smart manufacturing”, and, featuring the fast development of the new energy automobile industry, will fully demonstrate auto thermal management products including heat pump air-conditioner, electric compressor, battery cooling, and cooling module. The exhibition gathers outstanding enterprises such as Jinglei, Yu Yu, Jinlong, Weilong, Keyin, Posung, Fala, Yier Fusi, Lengzuan and Hetian, which will jointly facilitate the development of the new energy auto air-conditioning industry. In addition, the special zone is supported by the leading enterprise in China’s thermal management industry Jiazhidao. Forum activities will be organized at the exhibition centering on the development trends, technological barriers and relevant supporting technologies of the new energy auto air-conditioner to further serve the industry.


The coach air-conditioning products and parts zone will be located in Hall 3, displaying products like coach air-condition, truck air-conditioner and other auto air-conditioner and their parts. A large number of industrial leading brands like Taichang, Colku, Newbase, Topleader, Haorui, Dele, Jinlong, Guangyao, Yuneng and Hetian will be there to tap into the increasing demand of the commercial vehicle industry for auto air-conditioning and car air-conditioning products.


40 enterprises from Longquan will join CIAAR 2018 as a group to demonstrate “Longquan precision”


Equally remarkable is the Longquan exhibition delegation consisting of 40 enterprises from China’s auto air-conditioner manufacturing base. For many years, the delegation and the exhibition have developed a strong interactive effect. The exhibition effectively helps auto air-conditioning enterprises from Longquan to enter the Shanghai market and consequently develop the market throughout China and even the overseas market, while China’s top auto air-conditioner manufacturing level represented by the delegation also reflects the influence of the exhibition in the industry. The delegation this year includes excellent enterprises such as Yili, Songxin, Santian, Jinfeng, Xinding, Nicety, Ouyadi, Oujia, Jiunuo, Shuangrong, Jinbaode, Zhongtai, Junbo, Shike, Baojiali, Jieke, Sanhe, Chuangyu, Hengfeng and Bowei, which will collectively showcase the “Longquan precision” to purchasers onsite.
