Show Review 2019

The 14th edition of Professional MotorSport World Expo, which took place November 13, 14, 15, 2019, in Cologne, Germany, attracted more than 4,000 attendees eager to source new solutions and discover the latest technology from more than 230 exhibitors, as well as benefit from a range of expert insights at the free-to-attend engineering workshop program featuring nearly 30 speakers.

Familiar names such as Bosch, Ohlins, Continental, Integral Powertrain, Ricardo and Xtrac could be found on the exhibition floor, with visitors able to discuss in detail their needs for the 2020 race season and beyond. Closed to the public, the show was once again praised for its strict focus on business, allowing leading teams, drivers, engineers and suppliers to network without interruption and really engage in detailed discussion.

“It’s a great opportunity to meet the suppliers from overseas, because you don’t normally get much of a chance to talk to them in person and talk about business,” said Michael Hirzel, a development engineer from Audi, about the show.

“PMW Expo is the largest show in Europe, so I think you have to be here if you are working in motorsport and we are here to connect to some people in the industry, to network, and to keep on top of the latest trends,” explained André Klug, R&D technician (damper development), Hyundai Motorsport.

“We’re always excited to visit the show to understand what the current dynamics are and what the next developments will be,” added Stephane Fillastre, head of brand, Fédération Internationale de l'Automobile (FIA). “This year, I’ve seen a lot of technology related to sustainability. I’ve also seen a lot of simulation tools and demos, so there is clearly a lot happening in those two areas.”
