HistoryEdit

It started in 1986 by the name of GAIKINDO Cars Exhibition. The 4,000 m2 (43,000 sq ft) of Jakarta Convention Center (JCC) was the initial venue.

After changing the name into Jakarta Auto Expo in 1989, the exhibition grew significantly. The number of participants increased, even though it was postponed twice in 1992–1993 and 1997–1999 due to the government tight money policy and Asian Financial Crisis.

By the year of 2000, PT Dyandra Promosindo had been involved as the exhibition organizer handling the event which name had been changed into Gaikindo Auto Expo. As a result, the auto expo was receiving a big success by attended by 115 automotive-related companies.

As the time went by, Gaikindo Auto Expo was getting bigger and bigger. The number of participants increased, and the number of visitors had also jumped (161,089 visitors in 2005).

In 2006, Gaikindo Auto Expo started a new level of auto exhibition which was eventually becoming an international-scale exhibition by collaborating with OIC (Organisation Internationale des Constructeurs d’Automobiles) that coordinates international motor shows throughout the world. As a result, Gaikindo Auto Expo was changed into the 14th Indonesia International Motor Show, held from 21 to 30 July 2006. At the time, there were 165.984 visitors who contributed to a Rp 1.005 trillion transactions.

As the number of both visitors and participants was increasing, the 17th Indonesia International Motor Show was held from 24 July to 2 August 2009 at Jakarta International Expo, Kemayoran with 80,000 m2 (860,000 sq ft) of space.

The following years – 2010, 2011 and 2013 – of IIMS were running smoothly and getting bigger and bigger. There were also vast varieties of themes that show a high-responsibility to both the development of auto technology and world environment preservation – "Eco-Technology Motoring", for instance, was the theme of the IIMS 2010. There were also "Sustainable Green Technology", "Eco-Mobility" and "Smart Vehicle Mobility" for the 2011, 2012 and 2013 IIMS themes, respectively.

A breakthrough had been made by IIMS as at the 21st Indonesia International Motor Show held from 19 to 29 September 2013, the event covering a total gross area of 75,101 m2 (808,380 sq ft) which this led IIMS to be bigger than the other automotive exhibition in Asia-Pacific.[1]

Unlike the GIIAS, since this time the Indonesia International Motor Show was no longer authorized from Gaikindo.

The 24th Indonesia International Motor Show was held from 7 to 17 April 2016.[2] It was the first time the exhibition was held in April (and occasionally ending in early May) instead of July, August or September to avoid scheduling conflicts with GIIAS, which was held in July or August (previously, IIMS was held at the same time as GIIAS in 2015).

The 24th IIMS was opened by vice president of the Republic of Indonesia, Jusuf Kalla. At least 18 car brands participated at this exhibition. Halls B3 and C3 were occupied by Chevrolet, Daihatsu, Datsun, Honda, Hyundai, Mitsubishi, Nissan, Toyota, among many others.
