Join AmCham Shanghai's Automotive & Marketing Committees to recap the 2021 Shanghai Auto Show Highlights on April 27th, from 2:00pm - 5:00pm. Even if you attended the show, our expert analysis will provide insights into the overarching trends showcased in this year's expo. Market watchers will share what they consider to be the best in show and why. We'll discuss the direction of exciting new arrivals from the Chinese market, and how the traditional automakers are answering back. New technology will be a major theme in this show, so we'll take a look at the supply side of the key component – semiconductors. Closing the session will be a look at the marketing channels growing in popularity over the traditional dealership model, with direct-to-consumer online sales gaining steam.
