Malaysian Motor Show attracts 300,000 visitors

News this week: Last month, the Malaysian Automotive Association (MAA) held the 8th edition of its Kuala Lumpur International Motor Show (KLIMS). The exhibition attracted more than 300,000 visitors and featured more than 100 cars and 150 exhibitors.

Organised once every three year, KLIMS was held at the Putra World Trade Centre over a ten-day period (15th to 24th November) and covered 30,000 m2. Auto brands in the show included Ford, Honda, Hyundai, Nissan, Infiniti, Peugeot, Citroen, Toyota, Lexus, Volkswagen, Perodua, Isuzu, Subaru and Daihatsu.

Malaysia continues to be one the most dynamic exhibition markets in Asia. For the third year in a row, in 2012, the industry in Malaysia was the fastest growing market in Asia - expanding by 8.2% as nearly 300,000 m2 were sold at local trade fairs. More of the same can be expected to continue in the coming two to three years as the ASEAN markets are forecast to perform well and as new venue capacity comes online in Kuala Lumpur.
