TCEB supports Motor Expo 2017: Confident of Thailand’s readiness to lead in production of new-age vehiclesPOSTED BY Nigel Andretti ON 30 November 2017
The Thailand Convention and Exhibition Bureau or TCEB has given support to Inter-Media Consultant (IMC) by inviting the international press to attend the 34th Motor Expo and report on the potential and readiness of the Thai automotive industry as well as to build confidence with operators in both public and private sectors worldwide, especially among members of ASEAN.
Kwanchai Paphatphong, IMC president and organising chairman of Motor Expo 2017 revealed he is very pleased the event has been trusted and supported by the public sector for six years, confirming that the Motor Expo is an international event.
With the concept titled “New Age Vehicles… A Distant Dream Come True”, the event features 35 car manufacturers from nine countries and 20 motorcycle manufacturers from eight countries.
The Expo exhibits two concept cars – Hyundai RM 30 Concept and the Mitsubishi GT-PHEV Concept – along with automotive innovations and inventions by students taking part in the Automotive Innovation Award, all of which reflect the expo’s theme.
The organising chairman added, “IMC is the only international auto show organiser in Thailand that has been certified as a member of The Global Association of the Exhibition Industry (UFI: Union des Foires Internationales) since 2012 up until the present, because we attend to all facets of organising standards, such as controlling the sound pressure level in the Exhibition Hall which can affect the auditory system of visitors especially young children and the elderly.
“We invited a team of experts in the fields of sound engineering, mechanical engineering and aerospace engineering to work out a control plan to eliminate noise pollution in the hall and create an ambiance conducive to business negotiations.”
The 34th Motor Expo is held at IMPACT Challenger, Muang Thong Thani, from Nov 30 to December 11, 2017. Further details are available at www.motorexpo.co.th
