With Middle East markets delivering consistent growth across all sectors of the automotive industry, the Dubai International Motor Show’s position as the region’s largest and most influential automotive event has never been more important for the global motoring world.
A prominent event within the newly formed Dubai Motor Festival announced last month by His Highness Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Crown Prince of Dubai, the show runs from 5 – 9 November 2013 at Dubai World Trade Centre and is expected to be the largest edition in its history.
More than 15% percent bigger, the exhibition space this year totals 65,000m² to accommodate the more than 600 vehicles on display. A record 108 global and regional launches, including 15 concept cars by the world’s leading motoring manufacturers are scheduled to take place during the five day event. This highlights the influence of the Dubai International Motor Show and its position as the definitive platform for reaching Middle East markets.
A key growth region for the global automotive industry, the Middle East continues to drive sales across the board. In addition to the region’s high national wealth, significant government investment in infrastructure, buoyant private sector activity and a fast growing population are also contributing factors for consistent double-digit increases recorded by motoring marques in both volume and premium categories. As one of the leading car markets in the region, the UAE achieved record half year sales this June, up 18.7 percent from 2012, for a year-end forecast of 380,000 vehicles for 2013– an increase of almost 23 percent.
