21st Indonesia International Motor Show Presents Most Challenging Motorsports Competition
JAKARTA, INDONESIA, Jul, 29 2013 - (ACN Newswire) - Each year, the Indonesia International Motor Show (IIMS) continues to establish itself at an international level. This year, occupying an exhibition area of 75,000 square meters, IIMS takes its place as the biggest exhibition not only in Indonesia but in South East Asia.
"Major players in the automotive industry are taking IIMS into account as can be seen from the growing number of participants each year, which in turn makes IIMS bigger and better," said Johnny Darmawan, Chairman of IIMS 2013 Committee.
He also added that visitor enthusiasm towards the auto show, with the latest technology of the country's automotive industry, increases each year. Last year's IIMS drew more than 368 thousand visitors, while this year the committee is targeting 380 thousand visitors to attend the 11-day exhibition, from 19-29 September.
IIMS is the place where four-wheel aficionados can meet and mix. IIMS also presents a variety of top-quality programs that engage visitors and pump their adrenaline. It is not surprising that some of IIMS flagship programs are regular features of the show, and have become major attractions for visitors.
"We always try to present programs that involve the public in order to reward their loyalty and sense of belonging towards IIMS. IIMS not only belongs to the country's automotive players, we want it to become a proud symbol of the Indonesian public as well," said Johnny.
Building Commitment Each Year
Behind the innovation presented at IIMS each year, one thing remains the same, its consistency to be the vanguard support of green policy. This year is no exception. Carrying the theme "Smart Vehicle Mobility", IIMS is consistently disseminating the importance of fuel efficiency by introducing transportation systems with efficiency standards that reduce fuel consumption and emissions. Besides introducing fuel-efficient and clean technologies through various automotive products displayed by participants of IIMS 2013, the auto show also applies the same green spirit in its supporting activities.
This year's annual Indonesia International Automotive Conference (IIAC) is an example of Gaikindo (the Association of Indonesian Automotive Industries), as organizer of the IIMS, contributing to the development of the national automotive industry. Entering its 8th year, the conference will have a session of "APEC-AD Workshop", which is on the agenda of "The 19th APEC-Automotive Dialogue", in discussing the development of the green car industry in the Asia Pacific region.
Carrying the theme "Green Car Development Facilitation", which mirrors the concerns of all stakeholders and automotive players in Asia Pacific, the conference will garner the attention of national automotive players as well as Asia Pacific players.
Adrenaline Rush On Gymkhana Track
IIMS 2013 outdoor programs will definitely draw the attention of IIMS visitors, both regular visitors and auto-mania, as it will present programs with various levels of challenge throughout the 11-day exhibition.
The Test Drive program, which often becomes the prime target for visitors who want to test their dream cars before taking the final decision to purchase, will have new challenging tracks to test the car's agility, handling, performance, and other abilities. One of the new challenges will be a zigzag cuse to enable potential buyers to feel the stability and roll of the vehicle.
