Aside from the exhibition of the latest models, debuts and concept cars, the participation of sexy models in skimpy clothing is pretty much a staple in any auto show.
In years past, the Motor Expo in Thailand has continued the tradition of featuring models wearing sexy outfits, as they pose for the cameras along with the shiny automobiles and some lucky attendees.
For the upcoming event this year, however, the entertainment has been reported to be significantly toned down, with the pretty models having been told to wear less revealing clothes, according to Daily News (via Bangkok Coconuts).
Motor companies were required to submit their models’ outfits for approval. The general policy being implemented required the models to wear skirts or pants that have lengths beyond their knees.
The committee of Motor Expo has also requested car companies to avoid hosting any entertainment activities at their individual booths.
The huge event scheduled to run from Dec. 1 to Dec. 12 at IMPACT Challenger in Bangkok will be participated by 57 motor companies and is expected to generate 50 billion Thai Baht ($1.4 billion) in revenue for the 50,000 cars and 4,000 motorcycles set to be sold.
While not reported, the decision to do away with the festivities may have been due to the country’s mourning for the recent passing of Thailand’s late King Bhumibol Adulyadej.
