Kuala Lumpur International Motor Show 2018 to pump up the zeal in automobiles

Feb 19, 2019Media News

PETALING JAYA: The Malaysian Automotive Association (MAA) is rallying auto marques to invigorate the market for automobiles from four wheelers to two wheelers, automotive accessories products, car care products, lifestyle products associated with auto brands and commercial vehicles, at the Kuala Lumpur International Motor Show (KLIMS’18) this year.

KLIMS’18 will be held at the largest and newest exhibition arena in Malaysia, Malaysia International Trade and Exhibition Centre (MITEC), from Nov 23 to Dec 2 2018.

As the pinnacle of the motoring show calendar of the state, KLIMS is back to ignite the public’s excitement for automobiles with new launches and groundbreaking concepts.

Themed “Beyond Mobility”, KLIMS’18 is known as a branding show where auto marques gather to showcase their latest product offerings, automotive dominance and engineering visions.

Since the announcement of KLIMS’18 made early this year, MAA has been receiving enquiries from industry players, the public and media members for information of the show.

President of MAA, Datuk Aishah Ahmad said “We are pleased about the responses to KLIMS’18 as the show will not be successful for Malaysia without the support of industry players and the 2 public. As the association representing members’ interests in the automotive industry, MAA is presenting KLIMS to engage our members in unity so that we can be consequential in promoting a stronger industry for the benefit of all members and to provide the public an exciting purview of the possibilities available for their personal or family vehicles.”

Industry players are leveraging on KLIMS’18 as a springboard  to drive better performances and capture bigger market. MAA has forecasted a growth of .3% for Malaysia’s automotive industry, to reach 590,000 units in Total Industry Volume (TIV) for 2018. The projected growth comes as a positive sign with the marginal decline in TIV for the past two years.

While more auto brands are expected to confirm their participation, KLIMS’18 has confirmed market leaders such as Daihatsu, Ford, Honda, Hyundai, Infiniti, Isuzu, Kia, Lexus, Mitsubishi, Nissan, Peugeot, Perodua, Proton, Toyota, UD, Kawasaki, Honda motorbikes, 3M, Elite Looks car care products, Good life car accessories, High-tech lubricants, Kakimotor car performance and maintenance, NVK Interiors and V-Kool.

Datuk Aishah Ahmad said “There is still time for industry players to participate at KLIMS’18, however, we are advising companies to confirm their bookings soon, so as not to be left out of available exhibition space.”

KLIMS’18 brings the largest gathering of automotive industry brands and automotive enthusiasts, as well as the public-at-large for a motoring and family-oriented event in Malaysia. KLIMS’18 is expected to make its comeback with over 100 participating exhibitors and attracting over 350,000 visitors.
