Inter-Media Consultant Co., Ltd., Organizer of “THE 27th THAILAND INTERNATIONAL MOTOR EXPO 2010” launches ‘The 1st Automotive Innovation Award’ as platform for contest of ideas by students from all over the country, aimed at developing automotive innovations.

Mr. Kwanchai Paphatphong, President and CEO of Inter-Media Consultant Co., Ltd. and Organizing Chairman of “THE 27th THAILAND INTERNATIONAL MOTOR EXPO 2010” reveals that Inter-Media Consultant Co. has been conducting business in the automotive field for a long time, adhering always to the policy of returning good things to society especially in augmenting the potential of the auto and parts industry. Its latest endeavour is the organizing of “THE 1st MOTOR EXPO INNOVATION AWARD 2010” which is a contest at university level to provide an opportunity for Thai youths to come up with automotive innovations that potentially can lead to commercial production. Qualified contestants will exhibit their designs in the 27th Motor Expo.

“Inter-Media Consultant has been organizing MOTOR EXPO DESIGN AWARD every year for 10 years, and from this year we shall add MOTOR EXPO AUTOMOTIVE INNOVATION AWARD as we believe development of the automotive industry should begin at university level. The Award places an emphasis on practical innovations – in each category as defined by the Organizer – that can lead to commercial production.”

“Most developed countries attach importance to development of skill, knowledge and know-how in creativity and innovation. Inter-Media Consultant is well aware that Thailand has a lot of quality persons who are not given as much encouragement as they should. The Award is therefore a thrust towards achieving patent automotive innovations by Thai people” said Mr. Kwanchai.

The Award is open to undergraduates who must be supervised by advisers and comprises 4 categories viz. 1. Automotive innovation for safety, 2. Automotive innovation for energy saving, 3. Automotive innovation for driving comfort/convenience, and 4. Miscellaneous Automotive innovations e.g. instruments for measuring some performance parameters.
