It was held last year for the first time after many years without the event and was an immediate success. It is now an annual event which looks set to go from strength to strength. The Zimbabwean public are a discerning bunch and the Motor Show gives them the opportunity to see all the available brands of vehicles in one place.
Last year there were six platinum exhibitors but this year the number has increased to 11, with almost all the available stands taken well in advance.
All the major brands like Toyota, Land Rover, Mercedes Benz, Mazda, Isuzu, Nissan, Hyundai, VW and BMW, to mention just but a few will be present as well as a whole host of auto related exhibits, finance stands, oils, tyres etc. The popular vintage section is also back this year. Currently at least four companies will use the opportunity of the motor show to launch new models of the brands they sell.
The motor show will be officially opened by the Mayor of Harare, his Worship Muchadei Masunda, on trader’s day which is Friday May 11.
The show is organised under the auspices of the Motor Industry Association of Zimbabwe, and it operates on a non-profit basis.
As said by Carl Varga “The motor show is organised by the motor industry for the good of the motor industry.” This year’s MIAZ organising committee are Carl Varga, Dzi Matanhire and Daphne Ritson. Last year over 4000 people passed through the gates, this year the organisers expect at least 6000 people to attend with the addition of an extra day which is Sunday. The show will be on May 12 and 13.On the 12th gates are open from 9am until 7pm, and on the 13th from 9am till 5pm.
Davies Events Productions will for the second year running be the organisers of the show.
