Beijing auto show sets world record attendance figure image

More than 800,000 people visited Auto China 2010, which wrapped up on Sunday, making it the best-attended motor show in the world, organizers say.

The 10-day event, held at the China International Exhibition Center, featured 990 cars from almost all manufacturers from around the globe, including 89 models making their world debut.
With its theme “For a Greener Tomorrow“, 95 energy-saving vehicles also made their debut. As well, 65 concept cars were on show.

On Saturday, thanks to the three-day May Day holidays and rising temperatures, more than 145,900 visitors went to the show, the 11th staging of the city’s auto exhibition.

The huge visitor numbers put pressure on the traffic between the city and the exhibition center in the Shunyi district. In addition, some of the more popular exhibitors had to restrict the numbers of visitors.
