I have thought about the current situation of the world motor show and the future of the automobile industry.

Frankfurt Motor Show

from before"I will give you an air ticket fee and accommodation fee, so why do not you go to the Frankfurt Motor Show to visit the blog and post an article on it?"I am idly wondering if someone will tell me.

I do not know who it is to say, and it is unknown whether there is a request for such work by an amateur ... So it is perfectly a delusion. Although it is just a delusion, if I do such a blog so much, I think that it would be good to be able to say that way in the future.

However, what kind of thing is the Frankfurt Motor Show?(Do not know w)

"It is a place for world car manufacturers to announce new models, wide and light is a dazzling spaceSince there is only a rough image such as "I decided to investigate this time.

What is a motor show?

By the way,In Japan, it says "motor show", but abroad it is often said to be "auto show", and the two mean the sameA lot So, if you say something about a motor show in the first place,

We will exhibit automobiles and related products at fairgrounds. Newspapers, magazines, and television are taken up largely, and as many visitors can be expected, new cars and concept cars are often announced.

In the past, the Tokyo Motor Show, the Frankfurt Motor Show and the North American International Auto Show, which will be held in Japan, Germany and the United States, the world's three largest automobile producing countries, were regarded as the three largest motor shows in the world,Currently, the Geneva Motor Show, Paris Motor Show, has joined and the world's five largest motor showsIt is called.

By the way, after the Tokyo Motor Show was held, reduce the contents of the exhibition"Nagoya · Sendai · Osaka · Fukuoka · Sapporo"A motor show will be held. I have been to Osaka's motor show before, but it is quite small compared to the Tokyo Motor Show I had imagined looking at the news, and I have a bit of disappointing memory.

What is the purpose of citing (holding) at the motor show?

So, what is the purpose of the ceremony at the motor show?

For the maker, not only the place of presentation of many new models, but also the motor show which can be enjoyed for those who are interested in cars and those who do not have the original meaning. Since we are getting bored with mere car exhibition, many future experimental vehicles that are not commercially available, such as a design concept model, are also exhibited. It also has a great role as a show to stimulate visitors' interest. Furthermore, the aim is to develop and further spread automobiles.

I see ... it is not just a place to present new cars, but it also includes events and festive implications.

Actual of the Tokyo Motor Show in Japan

So, how big is the Tokyo Motor Show to be held in Japan, so I tried to investigate the amount held in 2017.In 2017, it was held for 10 days from 28th October to 5th November, and the number of visitors was 770,000.I thought that "a wonderful people!", But the number of visitors is decreasing two consecutive times.

The reason for the decreasing trend of visitors,It seems that America, Italy and British cars do not originate from the source.GM, Ford Motor, Alfa Romeo, Fiat, Abarth, Jaguar, Land Rover, MINI and so on also joined in 2017.

By the way, exhibitors in 2017,

【Domestic car】
Daihatsu, Lexus, Honda, Mazda, Mitsubishi, Nissan, Subaru, Suzuki, Toyota,
【Imported car】
Alpina, Audi, BMW, Citroen, DS, Mercedes-Benz, Mercedes · AMG, Peugeot, Porsche, Smart, Smart Brabus, Renault, Volkswagen, Volvo.

I think that it is worthwhile to have feet because "vehicles all over the world are worth it", so it may be hard for the United States, Italy, British cars to come. By the way, because the Tokyo Motor Show is held every other year, there is no holding this year.
