KOTA KINABALU: Sabah’s very own Cars and Urban Lifestyle Trends (CULT) is making a strong return next week, aiming to showcase a remarkable 1,000 vehicles.
CULT promotion director John Kong said they have already received confirmation from over 600 participants for their highly anticipated car show, scheduled from Nov 10-12 at the Sabah International Convention Centre (SICC).
“We are all set to display a diverse collection of 140 custom vehicles indoors, including some international entries.
“Additionally, we anticipate more than 500 vehicles to grace the outdoor area, with hopes that more car enthusiasts will join during the event to meet our 1,000-vehicle challenge,” he said.
He expressed gratitude for the tremendous support from the Sabah Tourism Board (STB) and car enthusiasts to ensure the success of the event.
The CULT organising committee recently met with Assistant Tourism, Culture, and Environment Minister cum STB Chairman, Datuk Joniston Bangkuai, to provide him with a comprehensive update on their forthcoming grand event.
Notably, CULT has garnered participation from seven countries, including France, Singapore, Brunei, Indonesia, Thailand, the Philippines, and the United States.

In response, Joniston applauded CULT for their unwavering commitment to organising a significant homegrown car event and for attracting international participants to the region.
“With consistent dedication, there is no doubt that CULT will become a brand-defining event with the potential to reach new heights.
“The tourism ministry and STB are always open to provide support to organisations with bold visions that can further elevate the state’s presence, particularly in the MICE tourism industry,” he said.
