The Bangkok International Motor Show Is Underway

The 42nd Bangkok International Motor Show will be back this year at Impact Challenger Hall 1-3, Muang Thong Thani, starting March 24.

From Wednesday to April 4 every day, car enthusiasts in Thailand will be able to enjoy the official return of one of the top motoring events in Southeast Asia. The Bangkok International Motor Show (BIMS) will run from noon to 10:00 p.m. Monday to Friday and 11:00 a.m. at 10:00 p.m. on weekends and holidays.

The 2021 edition comes with the slogan “Shaping The Next Chapter” and has been organized by Grand Prix International.

It will feature two special zones called “Smart EV City” and “Glamping.” The first one is the novelty of this year’s show; it will represent a futuristic city full of automotive innovations, electric scooters, electric motorcycles, electric cars, and other cutting-edge technological products.

The Smart EV City’s objective is to satisfy the lifestyles of the people of the new generation.

On the other hand, Glamping will exhibit a range of vehicles designed and equipped with camping equipment for users who want to live outdoor experiences on four wheels.

To date, more than 34 car and motorcycle brands have confirmed their participation in BIMS 2021, which will cover nearly 171,000 square meters.

Some manufacturing companies are Ford, BMW, Aston Martin, Maserati, Mazda, Mercedes-Benz, Volvo, Subaru, Kia, Hyundai, Mitsubishi, Toyota, Honda, Nissan, Porsche, Yamaha, KTM, Lexus, Harley-Davidson, Suzuki, among others.

The GPI said that strict health security measures will be followed as in 2020.

Some of the measures include the mandatory use of masks at all times and social distancing. Visitors will also be required to wash their hands with hand sanitizer when getting into the exhibited car.

The organizers also announced that the width of the walkway between each booth and the main walkway would be expanded to keep physical distance.

Visitors will also be able to download an app called Car Buddy by GPI that they can use to obtain information on cars, maintenance, and roadside assistance. The app also offers campaigns and promotions from many automotive companies.

Also, behind Challenger Hall 1-2 will be the 12th Bangkok Used Car Show, offering Japanese and European cars at affordable prices during the same period.
