KUALA LUMPUR: The Malaysia Automotive Institute (MAI) is confident that its annual Malaysia Autoshow will attract more visitors at this year’s edition.

The fourth edition of the annual Malaysia Autoshow will be held from 26th to 29th April, 2018.

For the second year running, the venue will be at the Malaysia Agro Exposition Park Serdang (MAEPS).

MAI chief executive officer Datuk Madani Sahari said that the decision to move the event to MAEPS last year brought a wider array of attractions and new experiences to visitors, as the 2017 edition recorded more than 250,000 visitors.

“The expanded venue facilitated longer test drives routes and allowed many exciting outdoor activities to be carried out by the participating brands. These first-hand experiences for customers certainly contributed to the record-breaking sales,” he said.
