SIAF Guangzhou and Asiamold are the first Guangzhou fairs to be hosted by Messe Frankfurt since the beginning of the year. Both under the smart manufacturing cluster, the fairs served as an important tool for the resumption of business-to-business and in-person interactive events in China.

“As large scale events are gradually resuming in China, we are excited to be back to facilitating business interactions for the manufacturing industry, particularly within the South China region. The shows marked the first Guangzhou events to be held by Messe Frankfurt since January, when trade fairs were forced to be postponed due to the global pandemic. We are pleased that SIAF Guangzhou and Asiamold were able to go ahead as planned, offering a trusted one-stop platform for manufacturing industries and helping them resume their normal operations,” said Mr Hubert Duh, Chairman of Guangzhou Guangya Messe Frankfurt Co Ltd after the conclusion of the fairs.

Mr Duh added: “The overall positive response from participants has shown that the manufacturing industry is slowly recovering from the economic impact in the first two quarters of this year. Protective gear and other health equipment continue to be in high demand, and Asiamold’s new Mould and 3D Printing Epidemic Prevention Technology Display Zone, among various other thematic zones, proved to be popular. To further support the Chinese government’s new infrastructure and manufacturing development initiatives, this new zone along with other smart manufacturing solutions on display have reconfirmed strong business potential for exhibitors at the fairs.”

Exhibitor’s experiences

“We’ve exhibited at SIAF Guangzhou for over 10 years because it is one of the most influential and dependable platforms for promoting our firm within the South China region. This year, we particularly appreciate the opportunity to reconnect with key industry players, new and existing clients. Though SIAF Guangzhou was delayed, we are delighted to be here and have been in-touch with a number of clients representing the electrical, logistics, packaging and other engineering industries. Overall, we are very pleased with the fair and will continue to develop innovative automation solutions and support China’s manufacturing goals.” (Mr Xiao Dong, Regional Sales Manager, Shanghai Pepperl+Fuchs Automation Trading Co Ltd (Guangzhou office))

“We jumped at the opportunity to participate at Asiamold to reconnect with existing clients and showcase our latest moulding components and solutions. The fair not only presents the opportunity to get in contact with potential buyers, but more importantly it boosts support for the manufacturing industry. The visitor flow was not affected by the current healthcare crisis and was better than we expected. We connected with a number of serious overseas clients who have high chances of placing orders in the near future.” (Mr Zheng Peng, Company Representative, Dongguan Jinpan Mould Parts Co Ltd)
