Sponsors Announced for the 40th Tokyo Motor Show 2007

The Japan Automobile Manufacturers Association (“JAMA”, Chairman: Fujio Cho) will hold the 40th Tokyo Motor Show 2007 at Makuhari Messe in Chiba City for 17 days from October 26th (Friday) through November 11th (Sunday) this year. The show will be opened to the public from October 27th (Saturday). JAMA’s efforts to recruit sponsors for the Sponsorship Program have been underway and the six companies below have decided to participate in the Program at this point.

The Sponsorship Program was introduced starting with the 37th Tokyo Motor Show of 2003. Using fees secured through this program, a wide range of special “audience-participation, hands-on” events will be offered.
A wide variety of benefits will be available for the sponsors, i.e., display of billboards in the show site, promotion of their brands and products at company booths, and exposure of their company names on show advertisements by JAMA.

While the six sponsors below have been confirmed, recruiting is still open and JAMA looks forward to the participation of even more sponsors in the upcoming months.
