The annual leading industrial events in Asia-Pacific region, PTC ASIA, ComVac ASIA, CeMAT ASIA, Cold Chain ASIA, Heavy Machinery ASIA and Industrial Supply ASIA 2016 came to a successful close on 4 November at the Shanghai New International Expo Centre. This year’s shows themed on intelligent manufacturing, attracting nearly 1700 industrial pioneers from home and abroad to showcase their cutting-edge products and technologies within a display area of 130,000 sqm. The four-day events attracted a total of 78,443 trade visitors. In parallel with the 18th China International Industry Fair (CIIF) from 1 to 5 November, two grand events in Shanghai shared the visitor resource and connected with each other to the maximum.

“With the wide spread of Industrie 4.0 and the implementation of Made in China 2025, intelligent manufacturing has become the overwhelming trend for the upgrading and transforming of Chinese Industry.” Mr. Marc Siemering, Senior Vice President of Deutsche Messe AG said, “Exhibitors demonstrated a great number of practical Industrie 4.0 applications in this year’s shows.”

Different from the previous editions, PTC ASIA 2016 launched two new sectors of gear equipment as well as innovative application of power transmission products which emphasized on “the application of power transmission”. The show also made all-out efforts to promote the upgrading and transforming of national enterprises and attracted a number of global giants to compete with each other. NTN, the world’s famous precision bearing manufacturer and NGC, a high-precision transmission manufacturer made its first debut at the show with varieties of high-tech products. Intra-Italia, a professional manufacturer of hydraulic motor showcased its latest products and achieved good results.

Many positive feedbacks were also received from exhibitors. According to Kastas, “PTC ASIA 2016 still holds its position as the key event in Asia for our target industries. This year, the show was even more important for us to introduce new materials and designs. As a regular exhibitor since 2006, we felt that during this year’s show, the visitor profile was improved as more company executives made their presence. Thus, we got new contacts from important potential accounts mainly from China.” Other exhibitors such as GATES, NGC and C&U also expressed their content towards the show as well as gratitude to organizers.
