Singapore, 18 January 2017 – The Singapore Motorshow concluded another successful run at the 2017 event with a turnout of more than 47,000 people attending the event at the Suntec Convention and Exhibition Centre between 12 to 15 January, 2017. This year’s visitors were treated to a display of more than 200 cars from 28 brands.
Organised by the Motor Traders Association of Singapore (MTA), this year’s Singapore Motorshow saw an exciting showcase of over 20 new car launches and the return of all-time favourite Russ Swift along with his breath-taking stunt-driving performance sponsored by Subaru. The event also featured special virtual reality (VR) experiences for attendees, for the first time.
“We’re encouraged to see a good crowd considering that many have said that this will be a challenging year for Singapore’s economy,” said Glenn Tan, President of the Motor Traders Association of Singapore. “It’s great to see the brands working together to present an iconic automotive event with new activities and launches that the people of Singapore can look forward to each year.”
“Despite smaller numbers this year on the weekdays, we had very solid turnouts on both Saturday and Sunday. Crowds packed our popular activities with sold-out shows at Russ Swift’s stunt performances, live radio shows, contests and lucky draws. We’re glad to see families and car lovers having a good time throughout the 4-day event and we’re committed to keep this momentum going for next year’s event.”
