Malaysia Automotive Institute has taken a step further this year by taking Malaysia’s largest annual autoshow to a whole new level. Malaysia Autoshow 2017, with the theme “Smart, Safe and Sustainable Mobility” takes place from the 9 - 12 November, from 10am until 9pm at the Malaysia Agro Exposition Park, Serdang (MAEPS).
The new home of the Malaysia Autoshow 2017 is the show's largest ever venue, placed on 368 acres of land. The larger area has allowed MAI to bring the first autoshow in Malaysia that also features a symposium and music festival - Kuala Lumpur International Automotive Symposium (KLIAS) and SoundValley Festival 2017, taking place concurrently in the same location.
Penang has come under the spotlight in the past week due to severe floods. However, something good has come out of it - Malaysia has banded together to provide help in different ways to alleviate the hardships encountered in the state. oBike, the first smart dockless bike-sharing operator to launch in Malaysia, has also launched a PrayForPenang Campaign to help those affected by the flood. As part of this campaign, when 10,000 oBike users have completed their rides every day from 8 – 12 November 2017, oBike will donate RM2,000 daily to the Penang Storm and Flood Relief Fund.
