But as always the show is not open to the general public. True to its roots as a specialist environment for specialist people, the Expo is the place for motorsport teams, race car builders, engineering and technical people from all sectors of the motorsport community, and of course drivers. The organisers expect that moving it to the end of the week and including Saturday will create an easier networking environment without the need to be back at base the following day. For many people, getting even one day off when schedules are tight can be difficult enough.
New for the show in 2014 is a Technology Demonstration Area, which is designed to enable companies to show new and innovative products and demonstrate their benefits. It will augment two Technology Workshops, which as usual are likely to be packed out throughout the event!
“It’s very useful that so many different companies from across Europe are together in one place,” explained show visitor Thomas Hanisch, managing director of the innovative VLN and Nürburgring 24-hour team, Tuning Akademie. “That gives you a very good overview of the latest technologies. Another important point for us is that there are many familiar faces here from the Nürburgring, so the networking aspect works very well.”
