KLIMS13 Official Launch 028

According to Datuk Aishah, currently 93% of the exhibition space has already been booked by automakers prior to the official launch. There are two types of exhibition spaces available for participants. The first type is raw space, which can be booked for RM988 per sqm (minimum booking is 18sqm). Raw space is more ideal for exhibitors who wish to incorporate their own concepts and identities as part of their showcase. Another type of exhibition that can be taken up by participants is the ‘Shell Scheme’. This package is rated at RM1,088 per sqm and includes a 12sqm booth with white laminated partition, needle punch carpet, 1 information counter, 2 folding chairs and 2 fluorescent tubes, to name a few.

The 5th edition KLIMS will occupy close to 30,000 square meters of gross exhibition floor with over 150 participating exhibitors. Following the welcoming response from the public during the last event, the organiser is targeting around 330,000 visitors this year.
