Motor Show Brussels 2018

The 96th edition of the Brussels Motor Show will take place at the Brussels Expo from January 12 to 21. This year the Motor Show wil focus its attention on Cars and Motorcycles.

Last year, more than 437,112 visitors made their way to Heizel, which represented a new record, despite the fact that the Show was open for one day less. The organisers aim at making it more successful in 2018.

Regular visitors to the biggest event in the Brussels show and trade fair season can therefore expect a host of new features in the forthcoming Brussels European Motor Show, starting with a new housing of groups of exhibitors in the same exhibition hall. In this way motorised two-wheelers gain in surface area, seeing as they move to Halls 8 and 9, whilst cars will occupy Halls 1, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 11 and 12. These eight halls are more than necessary to give car exhibitors enough space, particularly since all the major makes on the Belgian market have signed up to be in attendance. To date this is unparalleled the world over, and is a feat the Brussels Motor Show can justifiably be proud of.


From Thursday 18 January to Sunday 21 January, the #WeAreMobility fair will also take place at Brussels Expo, presenting new urban mobility solutions (sharing of vehicles, intelligent parking systems and other new technologies).


The Motor Show of Brussels (Car and Motor Show) at the Heysel plateau (from 12 till 21 January 2018) may cause some traffic problems. It is advised to use public transportation to get there.
