Almeria motor show rolls into town


ALMERIA’S motor show has parked itself in the Palacio de Congresos y Exposiciones in Roquetas de Mar today (Friday).

The show, a new addition to the province’s calendar for this year, is set to feature cars from several brands with a presence in the province.

Organisers Jose Antonio Pozo and Simon Carrillo unveiled plans for the event to dignitaries from the Diputacion de Almeria and Roquetas de Mar’s Chamber of Commerce on Wednesday. BMW, Audi, Volkswagen, Peugeot, Ford, Seat, Suzuki, Subaru and Jaguar are all set to exhibit cars at the show. Motorcycles, boats and industrial vehicles such as tractors and lorries will also be on show. The total number on show is expected to be more than 700.

Pozo and Carillo said during their meeting with officials that the motoring industry was driving forward with strong growth.

“The economy has recovered and we are in a moment of growth in the motor world, which is beginning to pick up after years of crisis,” they said.

The show got under way at 12 noon today.

It closes at around 9pm on Sunday.
