The enthusiasm about the past Essen Motor Show is still lingering, as the preparations for the coming event from December 2 to 10, 2023 (Preview Day: December 1) are already in full swing again. Performance & racing, tuning & lifestyle, motor sports and classic cars are the pillars of the festival at Messe Essen - and this is independent of the technical drive. What exhibitors and visitors like is permitted at the Essen Motor Show. Numerous companies appreciate this and have already registered early for the trade fair spectacle.
Among the brands confirmed so far in the cross-thematic Hall 3 are, for example, ADAC, Deutscher Sportfahrer Kreis, KW automotive Gruppe, Lexus and Toyota (both via Lackas Rhein-Ruhr), Moetefindt, RAVENOL, Recaro and Sandtler. Dimitri Barichnowski, Head of Communications & PR Motorsport at RAVENOL, gives an outlook on the trade fair participation of the premium manufacturer: "Lubricants should basically not be a 'dry' topic: As an exhibitor at this year's Essen Motor Show, we as a lubricant specialist welcome all automobile enthusiasts to our stand in Hall 3, which will feature both interactive experiences and a relaxed lounge atmosphere. It's great to see our brand reaching an ever-widening motorsport audience and delighting our high-performance lubricant users."
"Perfect end to a business year"
The tuning industry will be presenting itself with a whole host of well-known names in Halls 5 to 7: Among others, Arlows, Borbet, Continental, Foxed, Grail Automotive, How Deep, H&R Spezialfedern, Levella, Low Madness, Performance Floor, Prior Design, Ronal, the Verband der Automobil Tuner and Vogtland Autosport will be there. At the suspension manufacturer H&R, the anticipation is great: "For more than 30 years, the Essen Motor Show has been the undisputed number 1 among the trade fairs for performance vehicles, tuning and accessories. The central location in the Ruhr area is optimal for all visitors. The exhibition halls are perfectly suited to the demands of every exhibitor. In addition, there are the committed and friendly employees of Messe Essen. Just real Ruhris. We look forward to the fair every year as the conclusion of each business year," explains Head of Sales Hartwig von der Brake. Gianni Tinghino from Performance Floor has a similar view: "The Essen Motor Show has been an absolute highlight for us for years! It is always nice to be able to be a part of this show with our Performance Floor and to see everyone like at a family reunion. We are looking forward to being part of it again this year."
"Strong registration status makes us very proud"
It will be all about motor sports in Hall 8 of the Essen Motor Show where, for example, the Automobile Club of Germany, the Hockenheimring and the Touring Car Legends will delight the fans. Messe Essen also welcomes Dekra, Heinrich Eibach and Sonax as returnees to the circle of exhibitors. Registration for the Essen Motor Show is still possible until June 30, interested exhibitors can find the documents at www.essen-motorshow.de.
"This is a very strong registration status which makes us very proud," says Project Manager Ralf Sawatzki and explains: "If you look at the worldwide development of automobile fairs, it is clear that we are spot on with the unique concept of the Essen Motor Show." This is also reflected in the latest visitor survey, according to which three quarters of the visitors come to Essen to experience something - followed by the specials and novelties. Almost 90 percent of those surveyed would also recommend a visit to the Essen Motor Show to others.
