The annual Indonesian International Motor Show (IIMS), to be held this year from April 27 to May 7 at the Jakarta International Expo (JIExpo) in Kemayoran, Central Jakarta, will host a wide variety of events and more than 34 participating brands.

Organized by PT Dyandra Promosindo, the show is set to feature a car parade, a larger test-driving area, a discount day, a road safety campaign for children, a drift competition, blood donation and audio competitions.

In a bid to attract around 450,000 visitors, IIMS will also provide a designated spot in Hall C3 to cater to car accessories enthusiasts, dubbed Pahami Village, in cooperation with the Indonesian Car Accessories Business Association (PAHAMI).
