From 12 to 21 January 2018 lovers of cars, motorcycles and other individual and shared means of transport have a date in their diary in the form of the 96th Brussels European Motor Show. FEBIAC, the show’s organiser, has gone to greater lengths than ever to transform the Heizel exhibition halls into a spectacular and immensely popular event where young and old alike will no doubt find the vehicle of their dreams, be it a one-, two- or four-wheeler.
By repeatedly seeking new lines of approach, refining concepts and broadening the range of products and services, the organisers of the Brussels European Motor Show continue to progress year after year, as is evidenced by the unbelievable success of the 2017 edition of the “small” Show. No fewer than 437,112 visitors made their way to Heizel, which represented a new record, despite the fact that the Show was open for one day less. This prompted FEBIAC to keep to the path it had set out on in 2015 and to ensure the continued development of its renowned Show.
Regular visitors to the biggest event in the Brussels show and trade fair season can therefore expect a host of new features in the forthcoming Brussels European Motor Show, starting with a new housing of groups of exhibitors in the same exhibition hall. In this way motorised two-wheelers gain in surface area, seeing as they move to Halls 8 and 9, whilst cars will occupy Halls 1, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 11 and 12. These eight halls are more than necessary to give car exhibitors enough space, particularly since all the major makes on the Belgian market have signed up to be in attendance. To date this is unparalleled the world over, and is a feat the Brussels Motor Show can justifiably be proud of.
For the first time the Brussels European Motor Show is also devoting an entire hall to solutions in the field of micro-mobility and shared mobility. This thematic exhibition in Hall 10 will be open to the general public during the last three days of the Show, on 19, 20 and 21 January.
Other new features, which we will be delighted to talk about in greater detail at the official press conference on 5 December, include an exhibition of car-related works of art and jewellery in Hall 1, which will incidentally also play host to prestigious makes of car, and the special attention we will be devoting to families with children, who will have a huge area to enjoy in Hall 4.
The press day at the Show will take place on Wednesday 10 January, the day before the B2B day on Thursday 11 January, which is the day of the official opening. The 96th Brussels Motor Show is then open to the general public from Friday 12 to Sunday 21 January.
We can also announce that the Show’s opening hours differ according to the day: on weekdays the Show is open from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m., and at weekends from 10 a.m. to 7.p.m. The three traditional evening sessions when the Show stays open until 10 p.m. are of course still scheduled, on 12, 15 and 19 January.
