TAP Comments

Ningbo Lvhong Automotive Parts Co., Ltd.

Deputy General Manager of Technology Department

Reed Exhibitions reached out to us before the event, informing us of the latest information and to learn more about our procurement needs. The staff accompanied us to booths, facilitating our contact with exhibitors. They also provided professional information services long after the exhibition. Our boss and colleagues were very satisfied with the organizer's comprehensive services! Many thanks!


Mitsui & Co. (Guangdong) Trading Co., Ltd.

Deputy Manager of Metal Resources Department

The exhibition provides a display platform for major manufacturers, while allowing purchasers like us to know more about suppliers. The onsite map guide was very easy to understand, and the exhibition offered many new opportunities. As an international trading company, we were proud to see so many quality Chinese products that reflect our national strength. In addition, the organizer provided thoughtful service. Hopefully, the show will continue to grow.


Asia-Pacific Light Alloy (Nantong) Technology Co., Ltd.

Head of Technology Department

We could feel the passion of the organizer throughout the exhibition. Their team made arrangements for everything from reception to onsite guidance, information provision and photo-taking. At the same time, we were able to meet up with exhibitors that precisely met our needs, and with whom we are currently in negotiations.

Project Manager

This was our first time visiting the exhibition with an objective to get in contact with extrusion press suppliers and die makers. Reed Exhibitions did a great job with organizing and fulfilling this request. They prepared a full exhibitor-itinerary for us, including entrance tickets and English-speaking contact persons to accompany us onsite. This added a lot of value to our short trip. Lightweight Asia offered a good variety of exhibitors showing all the latest automotive lightweighting innovations.
