Fossil fuels, including oil, coal and natural gas, supply around 80% of the world’s energy, but as recent events have illustrated, there is a need of a workable model for energy transition - one that is resilient enough to absorb external shocks, such as geopolitics and pandemics, yet pragmatic enough to reduce emissions linked to human activities.

Transformation is circulating Malaysia’s automotive market ahead of Automechanika Kuala Lumpur 2023. From both policy-driven and private sector initiatives, the country has ambitious plans to establish more influence on an international level.
Between 16 and 18 March at Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre, players can explore a gathering of opportunities from the upswing of electrification and digitalisation gaining ground in the supply chain.
With global trends doubling down on electromobility and connectivity, many international automotive markets are looking to leverage opportunities from the promise of Asia’s supply chain. From this viewpoint, Malaysia is a key nation in the region undergoing a significant transformation, with the Government working to stimulate industrial advancement from the National Automotive Policy 2020 and National Policy on Industry 4.0.
As innovation filters into every corner of the industry, it is important that Automechanika Kuala Lumpur 2023 raises the profile of the local supply chain. The fair will go the extra mile to spotlight prospects in electric vehicles, the Internet of Things (IoT) and services and maintenance at dedicated areas across the exhibition floor. To illustrate, the electric vehicle area will showcase developments in charging solutions and infrastructure, battery technologies, management systems, automation, and mobility.
The Hong Kong E-vehicles Business General Association and Asia Pacific Connected Vehicles Industry Association (endorsed by the Hong Kong Productivity Council and Trade, and Industrial Organisation Support Fund) will also host a pavilion in views of developing the electric vehicle market around Southeast Asia. Other highlights include auto parts, manufacturing, accessories and customising, repair and diagnostics, digitalisation, and logistics.
New business models
Looking to embrace the future automotive landscape, many Malaysian companies are pursuing new solutions to improve operational efficiency and performance. The show is set to address this need in the market by highlighting how participation from international players in the domestic supply chain can equally benefit local operators. Examples like Geely’s pre-emptive acquisition of Proton shares to leverage production and distribution channels demonstrate the keen interest of overseas investors operating through Malaysia to penetrate the ASEAN market.
During the show, companies will reveal the latest enabling technologies, software, smart manufacturing solutions and data management systems that have the ability to enhance the country’s competitiveness in the global supply chain. TechAlliance is one such exhibitor bringing their aftermarket data solutions to the show. The company’s product range supports service providers through the information tools that optimise business processes and the access to technical data from manufacturers for repair, maintenance and diagnostics.

The Future of Exhibitions, Congresses and Events
In the event world, it’s simply part of life if things don’t work out as planned.
Networking typically happens at real, in-person events. But it’s also possible to do it online; it just works a little differently. There are various options available to organisers.
New products and a well-conceived stand design are not the only drivers for a successful presence. Many other factors are also important, but trade fair planners often lose sight of them.
Trade fairs and trade fair companies need to constantly further develop, become more agile and flexible and offer services all year round. New, digital offerings are very important here. With its TrustedTargeting technology, Messe München offers its customers access to leading business-to-business decision-makers on the Internet.
