– the original celebrates anniversary
The number 1 of the classic fairs:
pioneer and example or a lot of vintage-car exhibitions
Special exhibition: 95 years Le Mans
Official historical company presentations of approximately 25 brands
of the international vehicle industry
The most important classic fair:

organises the classic fair with the greatest success and most visitors of the
world for the 30 th time. Organised as first great German car-salon for
vintage-cars, connoisseurs- and collector’s-vehicles in February 1989 it was,
and is, an often copied, but never reached, example for a lot of other events of
this type. With constant model upkeeping measures it has kept its pioneer role
and even still extended – and, nevertheless, remained the unique original.
Its recipe for success: To present to the visitors from more than 40 nations
always the newest of the international scene as selection of the best from all
fields of the classic hobby. With more than 1,250 exhibitors from more than
30 nations the Techno-Classica Essen reinforces its significance as number 1
of the international vintage-car and collector’s vehicles fairs and provides
a comprehensive image of the international classic scene.
of the automobile world leading fair: About 25 automobile brands present
chosen exhibits, which are to see at a large part at the Techno-Classica Essen
exclusively, at their plant stands. They make the automobile world leading fair
to the greatest history platform of the international car industry and
demonstrate with their mostly spectacular appearances, which importance
they attach to the classic world fair. The classic enthusiasts are appreciative of
this: 2017 more than 185,000 visitors flocked into the full occupied exhibition
halls at the Essen Gruga-park. And also the exhibitors know:
At the TechnoClassica Essen they play in the Champions League.
For the anniversary exhibition the organiser provides a special
On the occasion of the 95 years existence of the 24 hours of Le Mans
the S.I.H.A. presents in the centre of the classic world fair, in hall 6,
a special exhibition with racing cars, which are regarded as automobile
historical gems even by extremely connoisseurs:
Seven icons of the long-distance classics as from the 1960-ties
are to admire at the Palais de l’Automobile.
But also for beginners in the classic scene the Techno-Classica Essen
provides attractive offers:
More than 30 percent of the automobiles, offered for purchase, are reasonable
“plug and play“-young-timer. The overall more than 2,700 offered classic-,
collector’sand connaisseur-vehicles, young-timers and prestige cars make
the Techno-Classica also in spring 2018 to the greatest classic market of
the world again – here the Crème de la Crème of the international classic
dealers come together with offerers of use-classics and private sellers.
The last are to find at the four open spaces above all.
Also for the more than 220 exhibiting classic-clubs and communities of
interest the Techno-Classica Essen 2018 is regarded as the most important
classic fair of the year: The honoraries make it to one of the greatest club
meetings of the vintage-car and youngtimer scene of the world and reflect
the variety of the international vintage-car and classic scene with their
commitment. Their appearances are supplemented as well by the qualitative
and quantitative unattained offers of top-restorers, supplying enterprises,
suppliers of car literature, spare part dealers, accessories sellers, clock- and
technology dealers, artists and art dealers, publishers, and not at least model
car suppliers. Because the Techno-Classica Essen is the fair with
the greatest profit potential.
The consequence: The specialist dealers – as well as also the visitors –
are not coming only from entire Europe, but also from overseas.
So, among others, exhibitors from North and South America, and in
the last years also increasingly from Far East, present their range.
To the traditions, maintained at the Techno-Classica, belongs a
Concours d’Elégance, at which an international jury of experts and specialist
journalists elect the most beautiful, most elegant and most attractive dealer
classic and choose “the Best of Show“. In addition there is a “Club Grand Prix“,
at which the most attractive club presentations are honoured with high cash
prizes for the club cashes. And the annual Coys-action, at which constantly far
beyond 60 collector’s automobiles came under the hammer, belongs to
the standards of the classic world fair too. The permanent detail
improvements, innovations and the fresh ideas keep also the
“30thWorld fair for vintage-cars, classic- & prestigeautomobiles,
motor sport, motorcycles, spare parts, restoration and world club-meeting”
so the official subtitle – young and provide in every year surprises.
Past and future: At the five-days fair everything, nearly everything,
is offered around the topic vintage-cars and young-timers
– so there meet from 21 st until 25 th March 2018 a lot of VIP’s from movies
and TV, stars from the history and present of the motor sport and
the most important deciders from the classic scene as well.
The attractive and fascinating exhibition spectrum makes the Techno-Classica
Essen to the automobile infotainment event of first class for the whole family,
to the world fair of the car.
“The ambitioned beginnings were followed by years of consistent extension
up to the label with worldwide respect – today the classic cosmos meets for
the start of the season in Essen“, it is called in the prospect of the S.I.H.A. and:
“Protect the spirit of the pioneers with us, yesterday – today – tomorrow.
Share the passion“.
