Many of the exhibits focused on the protection of the environment, IT (information technology), and welfare (technologies for the disabled), with a variety of related state-of-the art technologies. In addition, the organizer incorporated several new promotional events, including symposiums and a commercial vehicle test-ride program. The efforts of the organizer and exhibitors were indeed rewarded, drawing 177,900 visitors, an attendance far beyond the estimated 120,000 and a sure sign that this show will emerge as a pivotal part of the automotive scene in Asia for a long time to come.
