Exhibitions are a powerful marketing tool that enables companies to showcase their products and new ideas and receive recognition for their brand in the industry. The fact that an exhibition is held face to face brings an added value that is unmatchable to advertising a product online. There is a greater chance of creating meaningful connections with other businesses in your field, advertising your product to a broader crowd, and observing the competition ahead.
The pandemic significantly affected the automotive industry, especially in 2020, where sales plunged drastically in China, America, and Europe. While the automotive industry may not recover fully from its pandemic standstill immediately, 2022 marks the start of an economic upturn. Thanks to the vaccines and the lifted flight ban in most countries worldwide, exhibitions are accessible again after more than yearlong unavailability. Now is the time to participate in exhibitions and conferences worldwide, catch up with new trends in the industry and claim your spot as a leading brand. In this article, we gathered the most important exhibitions in automotive taking place in America, China, and around Europe.
