87th European Motor Show Brussels
The 87th European Motor Show Brussels runs from 16 to 25 January 2009 with two main components:
"Light Commercial Vehicles" targeting at the same time the professional visitor and the public in search of vehicles of maximum 7.5T for the industrial or commercial transport of goods and/or passengers;
"Recreational Vehicles and Motorcycles" exhibiting mainly motorcycles and recreational vehicles such as all-road, breaks, MPV’s and convertibles. In 2009 moreover, other motorcar types will be exhibited (sedan, hatchback and coupes). The purpose of their presence is to show product novelties rather display the complete product range of the brand.
The motor show aims at creating a climate propitious to sales for the 300,000 to 320,000 expected visitors over a 10 days period.
People need transport - Transport: the beating heart of our society
In order to maintain a "low cost" environment for the exhibitors and with the intent to differ this show from the Auto & Moto Show in even years, the organisers encourage initiatives by the exhibitors to reduce their participation cost.
The organisers will develop a communication strategy that will specifically address the different target groups of visitors.
A trade show for "Heavy Commercial Vehicles" is staged simultaneously over a 4-day period in two separate exhibition halls (17-20 January 2009). The visitors of this trade show will have free access to the public exhibition. The exhibitors of light commercial vehicles will thus benefit from the interest of this show's trade visitors.
