KUALA LUMPUR (Jan 10): After a five-year hiatus, the Kuala Lumpur International Motor Show (KLIMS) is making a comeback this year with the theme "Beyond Mobility".

Scheduled to take place from Nov 23 to Dec 2, 2018 at the Malaysia International Trade and Exhibition Centre (MITEC), KLIMS 2018 is poised to rev up Malaysia's automotive industry with many new model launches and automobile concepts.

Organiser Malaysian Automotive Association expects more than 350,000 visitors to the 10-day event.

Among the more than 100 participating exhibitors are Daihatsu, Ford, Honda, Nissan, Perodua, Proton and Toyota.

"With the rise in cost of living affecting consumers, and higher cost of doing business impacting companies, the local automotive sector is expected to face another challenging year," said MAA president Datuk Aishah Ahmad during the KLIMS 2018 launch and signing ceremony today.

"Therefore, MAA and leading auto companies have indicated that having the motor show in 2018 is opportune to reignite consumers' sentiment, define brand presence and refuel the industry," said Aishah.

KLIMS was last held in 2013 at the Putra World Trade Centre.
