Gaikindo Indonesia International Auto Show


The first automotive exhibition hosted by GAIKINDO, Pameran Mobil GAIKINDO was established in 1986 and was the beginning of Indonesia’s largest automotive exhibition. In 2006, the exhibition reached a new platform by becoming an international-scale exhibition endorsed by OICA (Organisation Internationale des Constructeurs d’Automobiles) and changed its name to Indonesia International Motor Show (IIMS). Along with the fantastic more than 30 years of journey, this year we will drive the show towards a brighter future and launch the show with a new name GAIKINDO Indonesia International AUTO SHOW (GIIAS). Beyond Mobility leads the development and implementation of world-leading related automotive technology that will impact the lives of billions of people. Within decades, mobility is the idea of moving people, access through automobile
technology, with strong attention to safety and social status. As the world evolve, the mobility world is facing a massive change moving away from its longstanding point of view. The proliferation of IOT (Internet of Things), mobile devices, and marginal cost and benefits has created a major shift in mobility preferences. These phenomena will have a huge impact on our lives in the years to come, redefining enormous markets such as energy, finance, insurance, retail, media, telecommunication, logistics and of course the automotive industry. Beyond Mobility defines the evolution of automobile as it enters a new phase. Automobile manufacturers are challenged to build technologies that could go along with the evolution of human mobility.


How will the automotive industry cope? 

The Challenge of Future Mobility System Innovative technologies has changed how companies develop and build vehicles. Electric and fuel-cell powertrains, lightweight materials, vehicles outfitted with electronic control modules and sensors that enable vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) and vehicle-to-infrastructure (V2I) communications, that can proactively suggest re-routings to avoid road hazards, and even avoid accidents. Further breakthroughs are advancing the introduction of autonomous vehicles. In the future to accept the challenge, vehicle manufacturers are predicted to design and develop vehicles not only to accommodate drivers, but rather emphasize passenger experience, potentially giving rise to new vehicle structures and forms. For Indonesia, this challenge translate as speeding the automotive industry growth to keep up if not exceed the global automotive industry developments.

The Indonesian government has targeted that by 2020, a minimum of 10% of the vehicles in Indonesia are fuel efficient with low emission and runs by hybrid or electric motors. For Indonesia, it’s about prioritizing the needs and aspirations of people and the creation of a stronger focus on accessibility of seamless and energy clean automobile, that creates better communities, environments, and economies. That’s why GAIKINDO Indonesia International Auto Show (GIIAS) believe that educating people is just as important as the development itself. GIIAS encourage Indonesian Automotive Industry to bring out the best of their technologies and products at GIIAS, to collaborate in educating and preparing the people of the new innovation that’s coming our way soon. GIIAS will be a part in expediting movement to welcome the future, and commemorate beyond mobility.
