The continuing popularity of RETRO CLASSICS STUTTGART® among exhibitors and visitors is due to its perfect mixture of exhibits, services and an accompanying programme. In 2018 the trade fair was crowned as "Show of the Year" in the renowned Historic Motoring Awards. "Long before advertising called nearly everything an "event", we relied on a coherent overall experience which now attracts guests to Stuttgart from all parts of the world. However, we certainly cannot afford to rest on our laurels, but must rather regard the endorsement by the visitors as motivation," said Karl Ulrich Herrmann from the organiser RETRO Messen, who has also always kept his sights on and emphasised the cultural history aspects of modern mobility despite all the economic success. "A trade fair such as RETRO CLASSICS® can only survive in the long term if it continuously reinvents itself. It is essential to remain open to new things!“
Rarely presented racers and veterans: special shows
The traditional key elements of every RETRO CLASSICS® included the interesting special shows which are each devoted to a specific aspect of automobile history or technical history and are organised with a high level of expertise. Motorsports enthusiasts could look forward, for example, to a presentation of high-powered vehicles from the ROFGO Gulf Heritage Collection of the entrepreneur and racing driver Roald Goethe (atrium). The automobiles bearing the Voisin brand were once appreciated for their luxurious equipment and technical finesse. 18 of the now extremely rare vehicles werel presented in Stuttgart (Paul Horn Hall, Hall 10).
