Beautiful girls have always been an indispensable attribute of a good car show, but with time there are so few clothes on them that poor visitors don't even know what to pay more attention to - iron horses or young mares. Of course, this is not entirely bad, but still it seems that the spirit of the very first car shows, which were largely held by enthusiasts of the fledgling automobile industry, has been irrevocably lost.
Who is the cleverest, the most prescient? Who will be able to create such car which consumers will like for long and long years? The task is not easy - to surprise today's client is very, very difficult. That is why vast sums of money are spent on the best designers, "aesthetic gurus" are bought over, new styles and directions are created.
Technical organization of auto shows becomes more and more difficult. That is why there are not so many people, who want to promote an absolutely new brand of auto show. It will take time and considerable financial investments with not guaranteed result. That is why the old motor show guard, formed in the beginning of the XX century, rules the ball.
Car exhibitions attract a large number of visitors, both from Russia and abroad. A wide range of automobile products, from directly different brands of automobiles to automobile components is presented at exhibitions.
Participation in auto shows gives exhibitors an opportunity not only to demonstrate their own cars, but also to get acquainted with competitors' products as well as learn about consumer needs in this market segment.
Saint Petersburg is the center of the North-West Federal District, a megalopolis with over 2.5 million cars, not counting trucks and buses. It is a huge market for goods and services in the sphere of automobiles and technical service.? ??
The main target of the auto exhibitions is to introduce new goods and services to the market, to gain new business contacts in the sphere of production and delivery of auto components and spare parts, equipment for the enterprises of auto industry and technical service system.
At present in St. Petersburg the objectives of the state policy in the sphere of automotive industry are most clearly realized. The presence of foreign assembly factories of General Motors, Hyundai, Nissan, Toyota, Ford (in Vsevolozhsk) gives the city the status of one of the largest centers of automotive industry in Russia.? The arrival of automobile assembly plants in St. Petersburg stimulates the arrival of enterprises for the production of automobile components and the development of the automobile market.
Goods and services at automobile exhibitions are distributed by thematic sections. Usually these are: automobile industry, automobile spare parts, automobile accessories (security and alarm devices, audio and radio techniques, telephones, PDA, navigators), car service, filling stations, garages and parking, tuning, information services (special literature, training means and programs, services, insurance and leasing).
