This exhibition will attract many new participants as well as start-up players “outside the mobility framework” to once again enliven the world-class automotive exhibition.
There is no word yet on who will be making their debut at the show. However, the Japan Automobile Manufacturers Association (JAMA) will start recruiting exhibitors later this month.
“We set a framework for mobility so that other industries can join the event. I hope this will be a show that revives Japan,” said JAMA Chairman and also Toyota President Akio Toyoda.
The exhibition will attract many companies to showcase next-generation mobility including passenger cars, commercial vehicles, motorcycles, car bodies, parts and engines.
The Japan Mobility Show will take place at Tokyo Big Sight, which is also known as the Tokyo International Exhibition Center.
JAMA itself said that they are considering expanding the event to areas near the exhibition center as well as the Fukutoshin Rinkai area.
If this is allowed, the area will have “various programs” aimed at making the event “more enjoyable for one million visitors”.
The Tokyo Motor Show itself has been going on since 1973 and is one of the five largest automotive exhibitions in the world along with the North American International Auto Show, GIMS, Frankfurt Motor Show and Paris Motor Show.
