For example, it was not Volkswagen, Lamborghini, Bentley, autoinfusion not enough as Nissan, Mitsubishi, Mazda, Ford, and Subaru. The leaders of automakers are increasingly talking about the fact that the participation in exhibitions, rental space, stand construction and other costs for the presentation of new models is economically inexpedient, as ineffective for their promotion on the market. And what better to spend money on some strange project (bring a concept car by plane across continents or to stage a rally from Moscow around the globe) than to throw away money on the show. However, to bury the car dealers so far, especially that in addition to the regular participants they appear ambitious newcomers with bright projects.
