Welcome to InterAuto 2013 exhibition!

28 August 2013

How much do we know about cars, besides the fact, that they became integral part of our everyday life and our faithful companions? At the moment every seventh inhabitant of Russia guided by Ostap Bender's notorious phrase: “A car is not a piece of luxury but a transportation mean”, has purchased a motor vehicle.

The automobile market fluctuates every day but public interest to it remains invariable.

Those who have first-hand knowledge of cars and those who seek knowledge gathered in Crocus Expo IEC August 28 aiming to attend the 9th International exhibition of automotive industry InterAuto.

The Gala Opening Ceremony of the exposition took place August 28 at 12:00 p.m. in the lobby of the first pavilion Crocus Expo IEC. Speakers at the ceremony:

  • Yury Shestopalov, Head of the department for passenger motor and surface electric-powered transport;
  • Sergey Aristov, Director of the department for coordination of state industry programs of the Ministry for Regional Development of the Russian Federation;
  • Dmitry Abramov, Deputy Minister of Economic Development of the Kaluga region;
  • Igor Korovkin, Executive Director of the Association of Automakers of Russia NP (OAR);
  • Mikhail Blochin, Director General of the National Association of Automotive Components Manufacturers (NAPAK);
  • Anatoly Alekseev, Director General of GARO group of companies.

The speakers highly appreciated InterAuto’s role in the sphere of strengthening of international business relations between specialists of the branch and large-scale presentation of Russian and foreign manufacturers’ products.

About 7000 people visited the show during the first two working hours of InterAuto 2013. This year 715 companies from 17 countries of the world (the USA, Germany, China, Italy, Poland, Hungary, Russia and etc.) are presented at the exposition and that is half as much again as the last year's figures.

The exhibition produces quite an impression not only by a wide choice of automotive components. In 2013 the organizers managed to present a magnificent exposition of cars which attract huge number of visitors.

The motor show provides the perfect platform from which to preview new products, evaluate market trends, and establish long-lasting and commercially profitable partnerships. Moreover the visitors will have an opportunity to attend the awarding ceremony for the winners of the international independent professional award for the key players of the market of car service equipment in Russia The Car Component of the Year 2013 and The Golden Wrench 2013.

A unique event – the 1st International Forum of Local Suppliers of Automotive Components – will be held for the first time in Russia within the frames of the calendar of events of the show. Key audience of the forum, operating and potential manufacturers of components, representatives from Russian auto assembly enterprises, branch ministries and associations will discuss the following issues: Localization: current status and forecasts related to the demand for suppliers; Automotive Industry in Russia and Abroad, creation of national suppliers database and many other issues. The organizer of the event is the National Association of Automotive Components Manufacturers (NAPAK).
