AUTOMOTIVE HUNGARY opened its doors on 28th October 2015. Due to the growing number of exhibitors and the growth of the exhibition area, the event took place in the biggest pavilion of the Budapest Fair Center, called pavilion „A”, together with AUTÓTECHNIKA Exhibition.

The opening speech was delivered by Mr. László Szabó, Depute Minister of Ministry of Foreign Affairs and External Economic Relations. He participated at the round table discussion with the representatives of some important suppliers and the Hungarian government.
More than 8000 visitors came and met the four Hungarian OEMs, this year for the first time BMW, and 300 suppliers, component manufacturers and determining companies of this industry, who presented their activities. Not only Hungarian, but Czech, Turkish, French, Polish, German, Austrian, Slovak and English companies appeared also. Collective exhibitions weren’t missed, communal stands of MAJOSZ, German-Hungarian Chamber, PMKIK, Czech Trade, Miskolc, Győr and the Western-Pannon Region could be visited.
Traditionally, the co-events were based on the three key topics BUSINESS, SCIENCE, CAREER.
The event was a real professional gathering, because the event’s BUSINESS character was emphasized by the HIPA-sponsored events like „TIER UP!: Innovation of the past is today’s technology, novelties of present time are the future’s technology” presentation, the Russian-Hungarian Suppliers’ Forum and the MAJOSZ Suppliers’ Forum, where all the branch-leaders were presented. 170 automotive professinonals (+17% compared to last year) gathered at the one day long forum, who had preregistered 350 negotiations. Hungarian Suzuki, Volkswagen and Takata took part at the forum, showing its business importance and high professional standards.
„Remanufacturing, recycling in automotive industry” was the title of the Conference of Vehicle Developers within SCIENCE topic, furthermore visitors could participate in other presentations focusing on the actual questions of the recycling of vehicles regarding the maintenance and environmental protection.
The most significant events of CAREER topic, beside the conference program, is the meetings of the actors of business and education sectors.
