“With nature, for the people,” the Seoul Motor Show 2013



The Seoul Motor Show is a biennial motor show where domestic and foreign auto makers showcase their latest models that are either in production or at the R&D stage as well as new technologies for future models. The Seoul Motor Show dates back to 1995 and it is Korea’s only international motor show that has won the OICA( Organisation Internationale des Constructeurs d’Automobiles) accreditation.

The 2013 show will be the 9th event of the Seoul Motor Show. The Show, which was designated by the Ministry of Knowledge Economy as one of the top global exhibitions, has evolved into a major and well renowned exhibition held in Korea. Furthermore, it seems to be on the right track for joining the ranks of other top motor shows such as the Frankfurt Motor Show, the Paris Motor Show, the North American International Auto Show and the Tokyo Motor Show.



The Seoul Motor Show 2013 is scheduled to be held for 11 days from March 28 to April 7 at KINTEX (Korea International Exhibition Center), Goyang, Gyeonggi Province.

Under the theme of “With nature, for the people”, passenger cars, commercial vehicles, two-wheeled vehicles, bicycles, auto parts and other related devices will be on display at the exhibition. The 9th Seoul Motor Show will offer visitors a rare opportunity to have a panoramic view of the ongoing trend of the global auto market and new auto technologies. The 9th Seoul Motor Show will be the biggest motor show ever held in Korea, featuring 150 companies (including auto makers and parts suppliers) from a total of eight countries with an expected 1.2 million visitors.



The Seoul Motor Show 2013 will be an improvement on previous events With the opening of the second phase of KINTEX, the Seoul Motor Show 2013 will be the biggest ever held in Korea with 102,431sqm(1,102,558sqft), solving the previous problem of insufficient space for the Seoul Motor Show.

In sync with an increasing focus on low-carbon and green growth around the world, an array of eco-friendly, highefficiency, energy-saving small cars, hybrid vehicles, fuel cell vehicles (FCVs) and electric vehicles (EVs) will be displayed to stimulate public interest in the ‘green vehicle’ trend.

A variety of peripheral programs are also in the wings to entertain visitors: by lottery, a car and a bicycle will be randomly awarded to visitors each day. To better serve the forecasted 1.2 million visitors at the Seoul Motor Show 2013, there are a slew of programs in the pipeline such as a Telematics International Seminar, the Best Car made by College Students program, an Automotive Design Competition for College Students, the Most Popular Car Award, UCC Contests and Test-driving for Eco friendly Cars.

What’s more, a total of 10 cars will be given to visitors for free by lottery during the 10-day Motor Show.
