IT'S full steam ahead for this weekend's Wealth Auto Show 2014 at the Montego Bay Convention Centre in St James. The event will run from July 19 to 20.

"All is well and everything will be set up for tomorrow's 10:00 am opening," Garth Walker, chairman of Creative Media and Events, told Auto.

The show has already broke ground by being the first new-car dealer focused show of significant magnitude to be happening both at the venue and on the western end of the island. The size of the event has required modification to building doors a clear sign of the promise to deliver an expansive as Walker indicates.

"Patrons can expect a spectacular show. We've got it set up so the adults can browse to their heart's content while their children enjoy the Sandals and ATL Automotive sponsored Kids Zone," he said.

Along with a host of brands such as ATL Motors authorized dealers of Audi, Jaguar, Land Rover, Range Rover, Volkswagen and Honda; Toyota Jamaica, KIA dealers KIA Motors; Vehicles and Supplies, authorised dealers of Isuzu vehicles; Hyundai dealers Key Motors and Mazda dealers Executive Motors, they are not only expected to have their regular wares, but launch a few new cars as well.

In the midst of all this there will be a show exclusive.

"There will be a car on display that few have seen and is currently one-of-kind on the island," Walker explained.

The show will also feature financial institutions including National Commercial Bank, Sagicor and the Jamaica International Insurance Company ready to support any purchases made on the floor.

In 2011, 'Wealth' staged its first auto show at the National Arena in St Andrew after a four-year dearth of such events in Jamaica.

At that time, the principals argued that despite the economic challenges the automotive industry was facing due to the downturn in the global economy, there was a need for new-car dealers to showcase their latest offerings or face the possibility of a sector shutdown.
