In Nangoi's words, "the theme 'Rise of the Future Mobility' was chosen because we wanted to emphasize how rapid the developments in the global automotive industry have been. Various technological breakthroughs are driving changes in the automotive industry for the better. These changes are what we want to show at GIIAS 2017, the goal is to urge industry players and the community to begin to adapt and prepare for the globalization that is taking place in the automotive world," he explained.

At every GIIAS event, GAIKINDO strives to present an international-standards exhibition that can satisfy visitors and support participants. To achieve this, said Nangoi, GAIKINDO was listening and responding to automotive enthusiasts to fulfill their wish to be able to attend and watch an automotive event that provides the best experience.
Rizwan Alamsjah, Chief Organizer of GIIAS 2017, explained that as a part of the world automotive exhibition series, GIIAS was highly anticipated by Indonesian sole agents and their brand principals. GIIAS 2016 presented 36 products from participating sole agents, including 26 product launches, one world premiere, two ASEAN premieres, 19 Indonesian premieres and 14 concept cars.
Rizwan hopes that GIIAS 2017 will continue to be an opportunity for APM participants to introduce their best products. "At last year's event GIIAS included 36 launching events, including a world premiere, and concept cars. I think that this year will again be crowded and will feature another world premiere. I hope in the years ahead more world premieres will be held in GIIAS," he said.
Yohannes Nangoi agreed with his statement, adding that launches at GIIAS helped introduce the Indonesian automotive industry to the world, "We hope that the more products that are launched in Indonesia, the more it will raise the position of the Indonesian automotive industry in the world."
Rizwan also explained that based on the results of surveys conducted at previous GIIAS events, new products and technology were the allure and the main reason for visitors to attend GIIAS. As a world-class auto show series GAIKINDO wishes to consistently present an exhibition that leaves the best impression among automotive lovers.
