DETROIT (WWJ) - A new trade show featuring exhibitors involved in advanced automotive manufacturing, OEM parts and components, and electric car development is coming to Cobo Center in Detroit, October 3-8, 2011.
The Detroit International Advanced Manufacturing Technology Show (DIAMTS) is especially designed to bring North American and Chinese automakers and suppliers together under the same roof.
“Today there is no manufacturing trade show in Detroit, which is the center of manufacturing and electric car development in the United States. We need to change that. We also need to make more connections between North American and Chinese companies so they can do business together,” says Eric Huang, the organizer and CEO of DIAMTS.
“With all the improvements that are coming to Cobo Center, this is the time to show the world that Detroit is still a great place to do business.”
Chinese automakers Chery and Geely have already committed to exhibiting at DIAMTS. Their presence will provide North American suppliers a great opportunity to showcase their technology to two independent and fast-growing Chinese OEMs.
“I am so very pleased to announce that we will offer free exhibit space to the first 1,000 companies that commit to participate in this show,” said Mr. Huang. “No other show has done this before. It shows our commitment to DIAMTS and to the automotive community in Detroit.”
