- Towards the Automotive Future through GIIAS 2017

JAKARTA, INDONESIA, Mar 27, 2017 - (ACN Newswire) - The GAIKINDO Indonesia International Auto Show (GIIAS), enthusiastically received by Indonesian industry and automobile lovers alike as a fully international automotive exhibition in 2015 and 2016, returns to the Indonesia Convention Exhibition (ICE), BSD City Tangerang on the 10th-20th August for GIIAS 2017.

With the theme being "Rise of the Future Mobility", GIIAS 2017, the 25th GAIKINDO automotive exhibition, is an automotive event that demonstrates the spirit and commitment of GAIKINDO in developing and preparing the Indonesian automotive industry for the future.

Yohannes Nangoi, Chairman of GAIKINDO, said, "GAIKINDO has always been committed to the development of the Indonesian automotive industry. The theme "Rise of the Future Mobility" was chosen because it represents the GAIKINDO spirit to build and raise up the Indonesian automotive industry for the future."


The global auto industry has changed considerably due to breakthroughs in technology, ranging from the use of electricity with lower emissions to autonomous vehicles (vehicle without a driver), thought to become a reality in the near future. This shift convinced GAIKINDO to build and develop an automotive industry that was prepared to face globalization as it happens across the automotive world.

"Developments in the Indonesian automotive industry have not reached that point yet, but globalization is pushing the national industry to prepare, and to continue building and developing in order to keep up with the global automotive industry," he explained.

Supported by OICA, GIIAS is a World Class Auto Show Series

GAIKINDO's commitment, as a member of OICA, is organizing international automotive exhibitions of excellence. As the sole automotive exhibition in Indonesia that has gained the recognition and accreditation from OICA (Organisation Internationale des Constructeurs d'Automobiles), GAIKINDO believes that GIIAS 2017 will again receive the warmest welcome and the enthusiasm of the public.

Rizwan Alamsjah, Organizing Committee Chief of GIIAS 2017, affirms that GIIAS, as the sole auto show organized by GAIKINDO, is an attempt to propel Indonesia's automotive industry forward towards the future. Rizwan added that GIIAS is an event that aims to bring industry, government and the public directly together, making GIIAS an event that not only encourages the public towards an in-depth understanding of the latest developments in the Indonesian automotive industry, but also educates regarding the latest developments in the global automotive industry.

"GIIAS is intended to be a two-way window: it provides an overview for the people of Indonesia on the progress of the global automotive world. And through the wide range of latest product presented by the participants, GIIAS is a mirror of Indonesia's automotive industry reflecting on the international market. We hope that GIIAS both stimulates growth for the domestic market and leads to increased Indonesian industry exports," he said.

GIIAS 2017 Attracts the International Automotive World

In line with its theme, the GIIAS exhibition concept is no longer merely a platform to sell automotive products, GIIAS is an exhibition that promotes the advancement and development of automotive technology. GIIAS's future is expected to be a reference for all stakeholders in the Indonesian automotive industry, as a place to gain insight and a place to exchange the latest information about the automotive industry.

Yohannes Nangoi, Chairperson of GAIKINDO, highlighted GAIKINDO's eagerness to continuously develop GIIAS' organizing standard. "We want GIIAS to become a World-Class Auto Show to be reckoned with, and we need to improve ourselves. What has been running well will be much better," he said, adding that at the OICA meeting in October 2016 a representative from the world automotive industry had expressed appreciation for Indonesia's automotive industry development, which was reflected in the GIIAS exhibition last year.

Romi, Seven Event's President Director who also acts as an organizer of GIIAS 2017 agrees with the statement, "In accordance with the 'Rise of the Future Mobility' theme, the GIIAS exhibition will focus on presenting advances in the Indonesian automotive industry through various cars in the exhibition as well as innovations implemented by the participants.

"As an event that marks GAIKINDO's first steps to building and expanding the Indonesian automotive industry into the future, we assure all that GIIAS 2017 will continue showing the exhibition's values. There are not only attractions for members of the public but also for the vehicle's brand. Therefore, they will keep registering to take part in GIIAS 2017," said Romi.

At GIIAS 2016, 36 products from Agent licensee (APM) participants were successfully introduced, including 26 product launches, 1 world premiere, 2 ASEAN premieres, 19 Indonesian premieres and 14 concept cars. Concept car attendance figures and brand holder agencies preference to launch their latest products at GIIAS proves GIIAS' attraction and credibility as an international exhibition that has obtained acknowledgement from the OICA.

As of early March 2017, 29 brands from sole agents and GAIKINDO members were registered. This figure consists of 21 passenger vehicle brands, such as Audi, BMW, Chevrolet, Daihatsu, Datsun, Honda, Hyundai, Isuzu, KIA, Lexus, Mazda, Mercedes-Benz, MINI, Mitsubishi Motors, Nissan, Renault, Suzuki, Tata Motors, Toyota, VW, and Wuling. Eight commercial vehicle brands, DFSK, FAW, Hino, Hyundai Commercial, Isuzu, Mitsubishi FUSO, Tata Motors, and UD Truck, have registered to participate in GIIAS 2017 - BSD.

Without a doubt, GIIAS 2017 will present the latest products and innovations from all participants, which has always been GIIAS' main attraction.
