So how did the first day of KLIMS 2010 went? It went well, in fact better than I expected. It still haven’t reached the level of other international car shows yet but eventually it will if it continues the steady pace of improvements, I heard from a few friends I met there who had attended the last one in 2008 (KLIMS is held every 2 years) and they were very impressed with so far. But then this is just day 1….
Though I can’t comment on these improvements since this is my first time attending the event but I do like the fact they obviously didn’t let the moralists dictate what they can and cannot show (though it looked like they did go through the proton booth). Still its a lot better than I expected especially how they handled the huge crowd, Pikom could learn a thing or 2 from them.
The show is separated into 4 exhibition halls, each one catering to different numbers of vendors
- Hall 1
Caters to Perodua and Proton (along with lotus) primarily though there are smaller vendor.
- Hall 2
Caters more to the international car makers such as Isuzu, Chevolet and etc. This is where the camero and bumblebee are located.
- Hall 3
Mainly to Harley Davidson and Peugeot. There is another floor above that hall but I’m not sure if its considered to be part of hall 3 or is another separate hall by itself, that floor supposedly has the batmobile. Sadly its nothing more than a cheap styrofoam mockup of the tumbler….Its not even up to scale. So fans of Batman, be prepared to be VERY disappointed….as for Batman, -_-;; no, don’t bother……. The whole booth there is a complete mockery of the Batman franchise as well as the mythos. Pretend its not there, it might as well be…
- Hall 4 or 5?
Totally owned by Toyota, Honda and Lexus and in my opinion, well decked out! For fanboys, I suggest checking out the Prius! Makes me wish I could afford one!
Traffic to PWTC was as usual abysmal!! Looking for parking is even worse! I suggest that you park at Berjaya time Square and then take the monorail to PWTC. It would be a lot easier and cheaper!
Okay, I can hear some of you already saying “Enough stalling with blah blah! Where are the booth babes?!” So yeah this is what I meant when I said that it seemed like the moralists were not in control (except for the proton booth).
