- Extension of Show Period Relieves Congestion-
We closed the 39th Tokyo Motor Show at 7:00 p.m., Sunday, November 6. The show ran successfully for a period of 17 days beginning Friday, October 21. It was held at the Makuhari Messe complex in Chiba. A total of 1,512,100 visitors were recorded.
The theme for the show is "'Driving Tomorrow!' from Tokyo." It expresses the Tokyo Motor Show's commitment to being the festive place where people can experience the world's most advanced technologies and designs, while at the same time serving as a source of up-to-the-minute information on interactions between the automobile and motorized society. The show featured large numbers of World Premieres, exhibits on advanced environment and safety technologies, a retrospective looking back on its 50 year history, and a wide variety of "audience-participation, hands-on" events designed to appeal to female visitors and families. All these elements have made this year's show an outstanding success.
The show also help large numbers of visitors to see advanced environment and safety technologies for themselves, reaffirming the fun and excitement of automobiles and providing new dreams for the future. It was in every sense worthy of its position as a "landmark show," marking the first step into the next 50 years of the Tokyo Motor Show.
