NDO - The Vietnam Motor Show 2019 (VMS 2019) officially opened in Ho Chi Minh City on October 23.

The five-day event, held by the Vietnam Automobile Manufacturers’ Association (VAMA) in collaboration with the Vehicle Importers Vietnam Association, features 15 renowned automobile brands such as Audi, Ford, VinFast, Honda and Lexus.

Covering an area of over 20,000 square metres, the show also features nearly 200 booths displaying products of the automobile support industry.

Notably, a smart phone app is being deployed this year to help visitors keep a close watch on all the activities during the event and choose the shows they want to attend. It also enables automobile brands to provide useful information for their potential customers.

The event is expected to attract some 200,000 visitors, and millions of live video streaming viewers.

According to VAMA Chairman Toru Kinoshita, despite challenges, the Vietnam auto industry has recorded an annual average growth of 33%, with positive market signs boding well for producers by year’s end.

The annual event is considered as a playground for automobiles manufacturers and importers in Vietnam.
