The Brussels Motor Show is celebrating its 100th edition and its great comeback after two editions canceled due to the health crisis. The Belgian event will be able to celebrate its 100th with great fanfare with a traditional exhibition almost as before and as a bonus gift the award ceremony for the Car of the Year 2023, a first since the competition was founded in 1964.
From 14 to 22 January 2023, the European capital will switch to car capital. The Brussels show, long considered subservient to the giants of Paris, Frankfurt and Geneva, shows that it is still alive and well and now in full light.
The Brussels Motor Show, an important event for the Benelux automotive sector, concentrates a large part of its sales during the year, mainly on companies completing order forms at the show. As a result, almost all brands are present and this year it is an exceptional vintage that is offered to the public, starting with the entrance fee of € 12.50 and € 15 from January 14 or on site, or the price of a cinema ticket and far from other overpriced shows. For 6-15 year olds, the price drops to 7.5 € in presale on the Internet. With the entrance ticket it is also possible to access Hall 6 with an exhibition about luxury brands. The number of visitors is limited to 35,000 visitors per day, so it is best to buy your ticket online before going to the show.
The presentation of the Car of the Year in Brussels, a first!
For the very first time in its history, the show will host the Car of the Year award, which has awarded the best car on the European market since 1964. A sign of the growing international impact of the Brussels Motor Show. Who will be the lucky winner? Answer this Friday, January 13 at 1 p.m. during the press day.
