This year’s event featured the products and innovations of 200 exhibitors from 15 countries. Beside the four car and engine manufacturers in Hungary, i.e., Audi, Mercedes, Opel and Suzuki, the exhibition was attended by the largest suppliers, service providers, state organizations and trade associations as well. AUTOMOTIVE HUNGARY – was the only event in the region to present the entire spectrum of automobile production from design to manufacturing and servicing.
The Hungarian automotive industry has doubled its output in the past nine years while the number of employees increased by 34% in the sector, said Dr. László György, State Secretary for Economic Strategy and Regulation of the Ministry for Innovation and Technology (ITM). He added that Hungary’s automotive industry had grown by nearly 12 percent over the first eight months of 2019 despite the shrinking production in Germany.
For many years, one of AUTOMOTIVE HUNGARY’s most popular events has always been the MAGE – HIPA B2B supplier forum, which offers unique business opportunities for suppliers and buyers alike. The B2B forum allows buyers to assess the Hungarian supplier companies, meet them personally and potentially make deals later.
As usual, the event enjoyed a wide-ranging professional and state support, which allowed the organizers to implement high-quality professional programs. The exhibition’s professional partners were the Association of the Hungarian Automotive Industry (MAGE), the Association of Hungarian Automotive Component Manufacturers (MAJOSZ) and the Hungarian Investment Promotion Agency (HIPA).
According to the KAUCHUK development strategy, representatives of our company visited this exhibition to expand business opportunities and systematic integration into the environment of Western European automotive suppliers.
