At the event at the Sai Gon Exhibition and Convention Centre, Audi, Jaguar, Land Rover, Maserati, Mercedes-Benz, Subaru, and Volkswagen will bring a range of models and advanced technologies and take part in other activities like test driving and stunt shows.
Organized by Vehicles Importers Vietnam Association, CIS Vietnam and Le Bros, the motor show, on an area of over 10,000sq.m, expects to attract 120,000 visitors.
“While the imported car market in Vietnam is becoming more and more diverse with notable growth in numbers since the beginning of 2017, Vehicles Importers Vietnam Association wishes to proactively connect car importers with customers through VIMS 2017,” Laurent Genet, general director of Audi Vietnam, said.
“Each participating brand will deliver their own story and unique traits that we believe will provide an unprecedented experience for visitors in general and car lover in particular.”
The show would run from October 25 to 29, he added.
In addition to automobiles, there will also be supporting products and accessories.
Last year there were 16 brands and 150 models at the show, which attracted nearly 128,000 visitors and set social networks abuzz.
In the first quarter of this year auto sales in Vietnam grew at an impressive 30 percent.
