44th Tokyo Motor Show to go futuristic in 2015

Article by Andrew Christian, on October 7, 2014

Organizers of the biennial Tokyo Motor Show hopes to attract more exhibitors as well as visitors when its goes back to its traditional October scheduling in 2015 by going with the “Technology & Fantasy” theme and a “your heart will race” tagline. The 2015 Tokyo Motor Show – its 44th edition -- is scheduled from Oct. 29 to Nov. 8 at Tokyo Big Sight, where it has been since 2011.

Press days are scheduled on Oct. 28-29, with the 29th reserved for media coverage and advanced previews for special-ticket buyers. Organizers accidentally scheduled the 2013 Tokyo Motor Show on a time when the Los Angeles and Guangzhou auto shows were also set to be held.

The Detroit 3 – Ford, General Motors and Chrysler – did not appear at that edition third year in a row. The only US-based carmaker to appear at the 2013 Tokyo Motor Show was Tesla Motors.

That year saw around 902,800 visitors in the 10 days that it was opened to the public, which allowed it to post the highest ratio of visitors per day since 2005.

For the 2015 edition of the once most-prestigious auto show in Asia, brightly colored, neon-inspired poster design that portrays tracks of light resembling tires connecting to the future and the buzz it is hoped to create. Exhibitor registration runs from Oct. 6, 2014 to Jan. 16, 2015.
