Automechanika Shanghai will be opening its doors this week for its 2015 episode at the National Convention and Exhibition Center (Shanghai) in Hongqiao, Puxi. On Wednesday, December 2nd, thousands of visitors and exhibitors from the global automotive industry will meet to discuss the latest technologies, new products and the upcoming.
This is Temel Gaskets‘ second time exhibiting at the show. It has surely been many times for Messe Frankfurt in Shanghai however this is the very first time for everyone at the new show-grounds.
Starting with this year, Automechanika Shanghai will be held at a brand new exhibition space near the Hongqiao airport. It is claimed to be the largest of its kind and once the building is insight, it is hard for anyone to argue with that.
Transportation to the show site is likely to be the most convenient by the wide network of metro stretching from Pudong airport to all the way over by the show-grounds. Taxis are fairly economical in Shanghai and outside of rush our times, traffic flows at a decent speed. We would like to suggest being wary of possible long taxi lines around show closing times.
If you are Shanghai bound or already here, we hope to save you time by sharing a few tips that helped us in our last trip.

Here is a quick layout of the show grounds: Metro arrives on the left side of the layout, and the taxis depart from the right side of the layout.
3. Be prepared for the possible low temperatures: Layering will be very effective against the cool breeze in the morning and when it returns later in the afternoon. Last year, we were very pleased for the scarfs we had packed along. While the forecast shows slightly higher temperatures, it’s probably wise to be prepared.
