Excitement builds for Techno Classica 2011

Submitted by on March 22, 2011

With full energy the 23rd TECHNO-CLASSICA ESSEN will burst into life on 30th March 2011 with the Preview, Trade and Press Day. Already the organiser, S.I.H.A., has announced a “full house”: Almost all exhibition spaces in the 20 halls and at the open area of the fair are already booked.

This will be the 23rd world fair for Vintage, Classic & Prestige Automobiles, Motor Sport, Motorcycles, Spare Parts and Restoration. The World Club Meeting will be held over five days from March 30 until 3rd April 2011. The show represents the continuous and large growth of the national and international classic sector.

The TECHNO-CLASSICA ESSEN presents all facets of this prospering industry. More than 180,000 visitors from more than 40 nations are expected – and more than 1,150 exhibitors. The interest of international buyers in the TECHNO-CLASSICA  2011 has  increased again. More than 2,500 collector’s cars are at the renowned dealers sale and make the TECHNO-CLASSICA 2011 the most successful market in the world for Classics.

The TECHNO-CLASSICA ESSEN 2011 has much more to offer. It is the greatest platform for the presentation of the historic divisions of the international automobile- manufacturers and importers. Many companies have already announced their plans for the show:

• Mercedes-Benz celebrates 125 years automobile
BMW looks back on 75 years BMW 328 and 50 years “New Class”.
• Volkswagen Classic looks at the cabriolet.
• Opel will point to the 150th anniversary, which shall be celebrated in 2012.
• The motto of the Ford stand is “80 years made in Cologne”

Also the grant appearance of the importers as for example Peugeot, Citroen and Alfa Romeo has good tradition: 2011 the TECHNO-CLASSICA will join the entire range of important automobile-manufacturers under the same roof again.

TECHNO-CLASSICA covers all fields of the international classic sector. The event showcases restorers, dealers of automobile literature, spare part dealers, sellers of accessories,  artists and art dealers and dealers and manufacturers of model cars.

More than 200 registered clubs for classical vehicles and collector’s cars will also be in attendance.

For five days this April Essen will be the capital of the vintage universe again.
