The Johannesburg International Motor Show (JIMS), a multi-million Rand exhibition for the local automotive industry, is kicking off on Thursday.
JIMS replaces Auto Africa as South Africa's international motor exhibition and members of the media will attend the show on Thursday and Friday. There will be more than 250 exhibitors and most major car manufacturers will be present at the show.
The event is one of only two shows in the Southern hemisphere and the only one in Africa to be affiliated with, and hold accreditation from, the International Organisation of Motor Vehicle Manufacturers (OICA).
Visitors to the show, which takes place at Johannesburg’s National Exhibition Centre and opens for the public on Saturday 1 November, will be wowed by a virtually non-stop display of motoring action.
JIMS provides the South African motoring public the opportunity to experience a truly world-class auto show and also to let them plan for their next vehicle purchase.
But the show takes place against an interesting backdrop with the local industry facing immense challenges on a retail level, while simultaneously preparing itself for a future under the recently-announced Automotive Production and Development Programme.
