The 52nd Essen Motor Show has crossed the finishing line successfully: Over 360.000 visitors came to Messe Essen from November 30 to December 8 (Preview Day: November 29). The fans enthusiastic about cars came from Germany as well as, above all, from the Netherlands, Belgium and Austria. The range offered by the more than 500 exhibitors was characterized not only by discreet and noble tuning but also by motorsports. Moreover, vehicles with sustainable drives were a part of the show.
The concept of the performance festival came off perfectly: According to a survey, the Essen Motor Show again scored points with its visitors particularly due to its experience character. "That was a success all down the line. The Essen Motor Show has once more shown that it is unique worldwide. Here, it's about enthusiasm and emotions and the visitors can get in, experience and join in. The mood amongst the exhibitors and the visitors was outstanding," Oliver P. Kuhrt, CEO of Messe Essen, summarized the festival's success. Hermann Tomczyk, the Sports President of the General German Automobile Club (ADAC), also drew a positive conclusion: "The Essen Motor Show 2019 was an accomplished event and the unwaveringly great interest in it shows what high relevance motorsports and sporty vehicles continue to have for the numerous visitors. In addition to our classic motorsports program, we have shown the public enthusiastic about automobiles two new and innovative forms of motorsports, i.e. the Opel Corsa-e and the ADAC GT Masters eSports Championship."
The fans of classic vehicles also got their money's worth in Essen: In the Classic & Prestige Salon in Halls 1 and 2, more than 250 vehicles were available for sale. Brabus Classic presented one absolutely special vehicle, i.e. a Mercedes-Benz 300 SL Roadster which is worth Euro 1.89 million and promptly collected the prize as the most beautiful classic car at the Essen Motor Show. In addition to high-quality classic vehicles, the Classic & Prestige Salon also presented affordable vintage vehicles and youngtimers such as BMW Isetta, Fiat Cinquecento, Opel Kadett and VW Beetle.
This show delivers what its promises: All in all, 93 percent were completely satisfied or satisfied with their visit to the Essen Motor Show (in 2018: 90 percent). Even now, 94 percent are already planning to visit the performance festival again when it takes place at Messe Essen from November 28 to December 6, 2020 (Preview Day: November 27).
