Event organiser Pattanadesh Asasappakij said 11 automobile and motorcycle companies, along with 18 used car dealers will be present at the four-day event, which is expected to attract 250,000 visitors.
Approximately 2,000 orders are expected for new cars while 1,000 used cars would also be sold, Pattanadesh said.
The veteran auto critic and show organiser said political stability in Thailand would help boost the event.
“It will raise consumer spending to boost the Thai economy and in turn help push growth of the Thai automobile industry,” he said
“Meanwhile, automobile companies are continuing their launch of new products and sales campaigns throughout the year,” he said.
“Organisers of the FAST Auto Show Thailand 2019 want the venue to be a place for buyers and sellers of both new cars and used cars. They can all come here. There are many show supporters who will help you achieve your goals and everyone will be satisfied. There will also be sales campaigns by exhibitors as well as financial institutions,” Pattanadesh added.
“Given all the contributing factors, we are confident that the show will benefit the Thai automobile industry, particularly from the mid-year onwards, and contribute to the growth of the Thai economy,” he said.
Customers who place orders at the show are eligible for a grand raffle offering an Isuzu pick-up truck worth over Bt500,000 as the top prize.
