Show Review 2019

Another spectacular Global Automotive Components and Suppliers Expo

The 2019 edition of Global Automotive Components and Suppliers Expo saw the show enjoy another spectacular year, with an industry-leading array of new technologies, products and announcements attracting automotive OEMs and Tier 1, 2 and 3 procurement managers, component specifiers, supply chain partners and engineers to the Stuttgart Messe.

As in previous years, Global Automotive Components and Suppliers Expo was held alongside complementary events – four leading exhibitions in Automotive Testing Expo, Engine Expo + The Powertrain Technology Show, Autonomous Vehicle Technology Expo and Automotive Interiors Expo; and industry-leading symposia in Autonomous Vehicle Test & Development Symposium, Autonomous Vehicle Interior Design & Technology Symposium and Autonomous Vehicle Software & AI Symposium. Bringing together experts from across the automotive industry, the combined event welcomed a record number of visitors across the three days and saw hundreds of companies from across the globe showcase the latest developments in current- and next-generation innovation.

This year’s Global Automotive Components and Suppliers Expo was about more than just showcasing new products, however. The targeted visitor base and cutting-edge expertise demonstrated by exhibitors made the event a vital opportunity for key industry figures to connect, network and discuss the latest trends affecting the international automotive market.

From conversations about e-mobility component production on the Industria Metalli booth and demonstrations of smart factory networking from Kinexon to high-level discussions on automated versus manual production at the Multico booth, an extremely wide range of competencies were on display.

In the same hall, visitors could learn more about the array of manufacturing and finishing solutions at CMS, plastic engineering and manufacturing capabilities for automotive applications from CGM, specialist prototype and small series production expertise by Quantal, and injection molding consultancy and production from RDP Groupe.
