Trade fairs/exhibitions

Every year up to two million visitors from more than 100 countries come to Essen to find out what's new in their respective industries. This makes Essen Exhibition Centre one of the most-visited trade fair locations in Germany. Its calendar of events boasts some 40 trade fairs and exhibitions, 13 of which are international flagship trade fairs. More than 12,500 exhibitors, almost one in four of which comes from outside Germany, use the exhibition grounds every year.
Held annually at the end of November, Essen Exhibition Centre's most-visited trade fair goes by the motto "Your car is more". Every year 400,000 visitors flock to this international trade fair for car modifications, motorsport and classic cars. Motor racing features heavily here, as do manufacturers of a bewildering array of motor vehicles, while fantasy cars, supercars and prototypes are on display in the Show Centre.
