Festival of Motoring

Automotive Events

Mobility is reinventing itself – and it is doing so rapidly. Wide-ranging innovations are driving major disruptive changes in the automotive market. The focus is on megatrends such as connectivity, electromobility and the long-term goal of autonomous driving.

With our automotive events in the fields of cars, utility vehicles, buses, motorcycles, boats and aviation, we are doing more than showing the way forward in this dynamic environment – we are also creating entirely new event formats, such as the Festival of Motoring, an interactive event for the entire family. The Cape Town International Boat Show is South Africa’s premier boating and luxury lifestyle fair, while Aero South Africa marks Messe Frankfurt’s first foray into the world of aviation.
