27 aprile 2023
Parking China 2023 will return to the Shanghai New International Expo Centre (SNIEC) from 29 to 31 August 2023, running under the themes of “Empowering the Chinese parking ecosystem” and “Creating a better future with low-carbon smart parking”. Thisyear’s fair will feature two new special zones, namely “New energy dual carbon” and “Internet of Vehicles and future travel”, to support industry players in their efforts to upgrade the entire supply chain and seize business opportunities. The show’s booth reservation is currently open.
The new energy sector, as a core contributor to environmentalprotection, has been booming in recent years, led by an explosive increase in sales of new energy vehicles. According to figures released by the Ministry of Public Security of China1, the country’s car ownership has surpassed 319 million vehicles, including 13.1 million new energy vehicles, with a year-on-year growth of 67.13%.
To meet the increasing demand for electric vehicle charging, many car parks in China are speeding up the building and upgrading of charging facilities. The China Electric Vehicle Charging Infrastructure Promotion Alliance revealed earlier this year that the country built nearly 2.6 million new charging stations in 20222, for a total of 5.21 million units, and a year-on-year increase of 99.1%. The alliance also expected that with the continuous increase in the number of electric vehicles, the amount of charging facilities will continue to maintain steady growth across the country. It is estimated that the number will reach close to 9.6 million by end of 2023, an 84% increase compared t Meanwhile, with the rapid development of various technologies includingo the previous year.
Meanwhile, with the rapid development of various technologies including 5G, the Internet of Things (IoT) and digitalisation, the automotive industry has entered an era of intelligent connectivity. Intelligent vehicles
are able to communicate with drivers, other vehicles, roads and cloud servers. As one of the key industries for supporting future mobility, the parking sector will seize these significant opportunities, to further promote innovation, and to achieve high-quality development.
New specialised zones for smart parking
This year’s fair will set up new product displays to highlight the latest market trends. The "New energy dual carbon" area will explore a series of battery charging and swapping technologies, such as fast charging and battery lifetime extension. Elsewhere, the “Internet of Vehicles and future travel” is set to showcase solutions to tackle various pain points and challenges, including locating vehicles in car parks. Showcases will include smart parking location systems and automatic parking.

Diverse online and offline events encourage efficient exchanges
During the three-day fair, numerous influential industry players, experts, and government representatives will attend concurrent forums. They will share their thoughts on trending topics such as city-level smart parking, the upgrade and development of new energy battery charging and swapping technologies, and new challenges in intelligent connectivity. In addition, professionals from testing institutions will answer questions on battery charging and swapping facility standards.
Parking China has become rooted in the parking industry over many years and has maintained close connections with leading companies, authorities, and experts. The fair strives to promote communication and cooperation between the supply and demand sides, helping industry players to understand the emerging markets. For example, last year, the show lined up with the Shanghai Parking Service Industry Association, and the Hangzhou City Administration Bureau held a number of activities in a "conference with product showcases" mode, which received positive feedback from both exhibitors and audiences.
At the same time, the fair actively enhances industry interaction through online and offline events. The fair has introduced an online programme called “Wisdom – Smart Parking revolutionises transportation”, which explores the latest information, policies and hot issues for the parking industry. Physical events have also been successfully held in several cities for industry players to exchange knowledge.
Concurrent fairs generate more business opportunities
The fair organisers are keen to promote industry resource integration, facilitate technical communication, and foster win-win cooperation. Therefore, Parking China is integrating parking with various fields such as 5G, IoT, artificial intelligence (AI), big data, cloud computing, smart communities, and smart cities. A series of concurrent fairs, including Shanghai Intelligent Building Technology, Shanghai Smart Home Technology, and the Shanghai Smart Office Technology zone, will once again be held in coordination with Parking China to create business synergies and form a one-stop sourcing platform for smart building
