NEW DATE ANNOUNCED FOR KLIMS.
A new date has been announced for the Kuala Lumpur International Motor Show, and the show is now slated to run on Dec 3-12, 2010. The seventh edition of the show was supposed to have taken place this year on May 29-June 7, but was deferred following the effects brought about by the global economic crisis last year.
According to Aishah Ahmad, president of the MAA and chairman of the KLIMS 2010 organising committee, “The past year has been a challenging year for everyone, in particular the automotive players. Automakers have come to a decision to defer KLIMS to a later date to keep in line with consumer demand.”
“With signs of an economic recovery beginning to show, the committee feels that 2010 will be a good time to stage the show and the new date is meaningful as it coincides with MAA’s 50th anniversary,” she added.
Despite the change of date, the “We CARE” tagline still stands as the official theme for KLIMS’10. CARE is the acronym for Commitment, Advancement, Reliability and Environment. As part of promotional roll-out, fans can expect an onslaught of marketing, promotion and exciting activities in the lead up to KLIMS’10.
The show is expected to attract over 200 exhibitors from the automotive industry, occupy 30,000 sq.m of exhibition space and is targeted to draw over 330,000 visitors when it happens.
