From November 12-13, 2020, the 5th Electronically Power Assisted Cycles (EPAC) Technology Fair was held by Bafang in Suzhou, China. The annual event, initiated and promoted by Bafang in 2015, is now an important, anticipated industry event. Its mission is to provide a platform for joint discussions on industry development trends, the sharing and exchange of information on pedelec standard changes and market differences in various countries and regions around the world, and to help more industry professionals to understand and quickly enter the Chinese and global pedelec markets.
The theme for this year’s fair was “Work Hand in Hand, Win-win Cooperation”, with over 350 guests from more than 150 pedelec brands, Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs), industry associations and certification agencies invited to attend, the largest number in the event’s history. The theme was designed to reflect Bafang’s strong focus on close communication and collaboration with the pedelec manufacturing sector, to provide both manufacturers and end users with high-quality products to meet the market’s technical and performance demands.
Mr. Guo Wenyu, Vice Chairman and Secretary-General of the China Bicycle Association, delivered a welcome speech on behalf of the association, highlighting Bafang’s outstanding contributions, as a leader in their field, to the development of the industry over the years, and encouraging the entire industry to respond to China’s call to develop both domestic and international markets.
Also speaking at the event, Mr. Wang Qinghua, Bafang Chairman and General Manager, stated, “Bafang will continue to increase investment in research and development. The company will not only endeavor to expand in overseas markets and build up its international brand image, but also respond to China’s call to enhance domestic circulation, providing better products to enhance people’s quality of life.”
Many OEMs and brand dealers participated in valuable experience exchanges during the fair, while testing and certification agencies outlined relevant standards in a range of fields. These agencies also jointly witnessed the launch ceremony of the Pedelec Parts Group Standard Compilation Program, commissioned by the China Bicycle Association.
