Visit the China International Motorcycle Exhibition (2012 CIMAmotor)



Visit the China International Motorcycle Exhibition (2012 CIMAmotor)

Very often trying to find a way in to the Chinese motorcycle industry can be difficult. Obscure websites written in poor English hinder communication as do poor phone connections. The answer to the problem is to visit the CIMAmotor expo the biggest commuter motorcycle trade exhibition in the world. Each year more than 100000 people (including 32000 trade visitors) view over 450 exhibition stands (90 motorcycle companies and 360 parts and accessory companies) displaying more than 1000 motorcycle models and too many spare parts and accessories to count. CIMAmotor represents 90% of the Chinese motorcycle industry including all of the top 50 factories with many companies choosing CIMAmotor to launch their new products (131 new models were displayed in 2012); the expo generates over 110 million RMB on site.

2011 saw the launch of the bigger displacement motorcycles from China with Europe and North America primary market targets. With the Chinese domestic market greatly reduced due to Government policies banning the use of motorcycles in urban areas more and more motorcycle companies are looking to export and have the EURO and DOT certificates of conformity or are looking for cooperative partners.

Making their debut at the CIMAmotor 2011 were Yadea and Qianjiang two of the biggest electric scooter manufacturers in the world. 2013 will hopefully see many more EV companies contributing.

CIMAmotor not only attracts Chinese exhibitors, in 2012 38 foreign companies from UK, USA, Germany, Japan, Spain, France, Italy, Thailand, Korea and Taiwan chose CIMAmotor to showcase their products. CIMAmotor 2012 saw 44 motorcycle events held in conjunction with the expo including- stunt displays, product demonstrations, company news releases, beauty pageants and development forums 

2013 will see the introduction of a series of motocross races some of which will ask the visitor to participate (don’t worry we’ll supply the bike and safety gear) and the arrival of Australian Don Hampton as he completes his record breaking 20000 kilometre ride around China on a motorcycle and sidecar.

The exhibition centre is one of the top 10 in the world and boasts restaurants, tea rooms and bars (with really cheap beer)!

I am currently allocating VIP passes for the China International Motorcycle Exhibition (CIMAmotor). CIMAmotor is held in Chongqing city, China (the biggest motorcycle producing city in the world) in October and represents 90% of the Chinese motorcycle, accessories and spares industry. CIMAmotor is the world’s largest commuter motorcycle trade expo and was described by Mexican motorcycle magazine Revista 400 as “the most important motorcycle expo for the Latin American market.”

The VIP package includes free hotel accommodation, Personal Assistant, show tickets, welcome banquet, tourism tours, motocross riding and many more events. We can also organise factory and spare parts market visits for you. The estimated value of the VIP package is $400 US; here are the details in full.

Motocross events – If the bikes and the girls at the expo don’t lift your adrenalin levels enough you are invited to take part in our ‘all comers’ motocross race. We’ll provide the bike and safety gear.

The exponential growth in motorcycle production has seen the need for a bigger and more modern exhibition site for China’s premier motorcycle exhibition- CIMAmotor. As Chongqing fast becomes one of the world’s most important business and manufacture centres the need for a 1st class exhibition centre has been realised and built.

Chongqing International Expo Centre

Located at the core of the LiangJiang new business area in Yuelai exhibition town, the Chongqing International Expo Centre is one of the most impressively integrated conference, exhibition, catering, accommodation, entertainment and events venues in the world. With a total area of 600000 square metres the centre is the 2nd biggest in China and top 10 in the world.

As a global top tier convention and expo centre it offers a multifunctional hall of 20000 sq m, 16 ground level column free halls measuring 11150 sq m each. The centre also boasts 100000 sq m of meeting and banqueting rooms, a 100000 sq m service zone and 11000 parking spaces.

The centre is located 8 kilometres from Chongqing International Airport and 16 kilometres from the bright lights of downtown Chongqing. Also most of the 59 motorcycle manufacturing factories and thousands of spare parts companies are within a 10 dollar taxi ride. 

The new venue will comfortably allow for the expansion that it necessary for the expo and will grant exhibitors extra space to show-case their latest models. Also, in contrast to previous expos, all exhibition stands will be on the ground floor allowing more comfortable viewing pleasure for the visitor.

CIMAmotor’s expansion is yet another indication of the expos ambition, which is to become the number one motorcycle trade exhibition in the world!

While visiting the China International Motorcycle Exhibition in Chongqing it would be remiss not to visit one or more of the factories in the world’s biggest motorcycle producing city. Part of your VIP service pass gives you the opportunity to visit a major motorcycle factory and see the bikes being made from scratch (you may even get a free dinner with the export team)!

            If you’re already dealing with a Chongqing factory then they will pick you up from your hotel or from the CIMA expo. If you are not currently dealing with a Chongqing factory let me know your area of preference and I will arrange for you to be taken to the appropriate factory.

There is also the opportunity to visit Chongqing’s large motorcycle spare part market and get lost in clutch cables and head gaskets for the afternoon.

Don’t worry about getting lost; remember that your Personal Assistant will be with you as long as you want them to be!
