Promises to be a pleasurable family outings
Among car companies that will be offering special deals and discounts for the auto show are Citroen, Daihatsu Motors Malaysia Sdn Bhd, Daihatsu Sales Sdn Bhd, Edaran Tan Chong, Honda Malaysia, Jaguar Land Rover (M) Sdn Bhd, Kia, Motor Image Malaysia, Peugeot, Proton Edar, Sime Darby Auto Connexion, UMW Toyota and Volvo Cars.
“The organising committee is aggressively promoting this event to encourage more MAA members as well as auto related and accessory companies to pariticipate in this sales promotion platform,” said MAA president Datuk Aishah Ahmad.
“We are also in discussions with several banks and insurance companies seeking their participation in the auto show.
“We won’t charge entrance fee because we want car shoppers to come with their families. When buying a family car, isn’t it better for the family to test drive and experience the car and compare with the other cars as well?
“Opportunities to test drive multi-brand cars will take place at the spacious outdoor area of the venue.”
As Malaysians love food, the show is also about savouring a “Food Experience” comprising food trucks offering street food, burgers, compressed juices and snacks at the auto show in an air-conditioned setting.
Apart from cars and automotive accessories, lifestyle booths on health, fashion and fitness are some of the other attractions for family members.
Several fun games and activities are being organised for the children to enjoy making it a wholesome family outing.
According to Aishah, other than the sales campaign, so far there is no new model scheduled to be launched during the auto show.
“We have invited motorcycle and truck companies for their participation, but there is no firm confirmation yet. We are also still negotiating with banks to offer better financial deals,” added Aishah.
The three-day auto show will be held from May 20 to 22 at the Mines International Exhibition and Convention Centre, with the organisers targeting to attract an estimated crowd of 75,000.
