"The ESSEN MOTOR SHOW is a cult car fair with a bright future. The exhibitors and the public are once more confirming that it was precisely the right decision to focus on sporty automobiles again. That is being substantiated by the growing numbers of visitors in recent years and by the peak value for the time being in 2013," according to Egon Galinnis, Managing Director of Messe Essen.
What is particularly pleasing to the exhibitors and the organisers: The visitors used the ESSEN MOTOR SHOW for purchasing. According to a survey conducted by Gelszus-Messe-Marktforschungs-Institut ("Gelszus Fair Market Research Institute"), 52 percent have bought or ordered something in 2013. Products for vehicle tuning and automobile accessories were extremely popular.
Of course we were interested in the custom bikes and custom cars on display. There was a lot of new stuff to be seen, great bikes from the USA brought to the Essen Motor Show By RK Concepts, owner an builder Rafik had five of his newest creations in Essen and surprised the public with his mind-blowing bikes. Highlights for us were the Cool Hot Rods and American Custom Cars and lifestyle clothing, documentation and accessories that was all for sale at the Essen Motor Show. Some old customs brought back memories from the past, in contrast to the futuristic concept cars. Although the Essen Motor Show focusses mainly on cars, there was a modest Speed Bike Show and several cool bikes could be seen in Essen.
