The ceremonial opening of the event was attended by President Ivan Gašparovič and Transport Minister Ľubomír Vážny. In his address, Vážny highlighted the importance of the car industry for Slovakia's economy, and noted that it had been hit hard by the crisis. A specialised exhibition, Autoservis, which will present car accessories and the industry's service technologies, opened on the same day. Both events will run until Sunday, April 18.
