The Salon is authorized by the International Organization of Motor Vehicle Manufacturers OICA and was held under the auspices of the President of the Republic of Croatia, Mrs. Kolinda Grabar Kitarović.

Sustainable mobility as man's life need remained the central topic of the Salon that was reflected in the record number of exhibitors offering electric and hybrid models.
We also wish to highlight the good moment on the market for holding the Salon: during the first two months of this year the revised regulatory framework began to show concrete positive results of sales of new vehicles for personal needs, being the most damaged segment in the previous period and yet so significant both for the recovery of the car market in Croatia and for its safety in terms of the car fleet renewal.
