With the fingers crossed but with the knowledge of vaccin campaigns starting up around the world, Busworld is aiming at organizing four Busworld exhibitions. The first one is scheduled for Baltimore (USA) in June, the second will be held in July in Nur-Sultan the capital of Kazakhstan, the third will be Busworld Southeast Asia in August and then finally Brussels in October. Busworld emphasizes that for all three exhibitions there is an overwhelming enthusiasm from exhibitors to participate showing the strength of the bus and coach industry.
For Busworld Europe, for the second time to be held in the Brussels Expo centre in Belgium, already more then 75% of the available space is reserved. The edition in 2019 attracted over 500 exhibitors from all parts of the world and was visited by almost 40,000 people. For the coming four exhibitions around the world, Busworld states there is still the opportunity to reserve a special place on the exhibition floors: Busworld North America, Busworld Central Asia, Busworld South East Asia and Busworld Europe.
Busworld starts this year with the very first Busworld North America in the Baltimore Convention Center in Baltimore (USA). Three days, 19-21 June 2021, Baltimore will be the place to be for bus and coach OEM’s, body builders, component and spare part manufacturers, product designers, IT, financial institutions, etcetera. For this debut in North America Busworld has teamed up with the American Bus Association. Busworld North America 2021 will be held as a separate event concurrent with the ABA Marketplace 2021 that has its focus on the travel and tourism community which goes hand in hand with the coach industry.
The second Busworld exhibition this year will be in Kazakhstan in the capital Nur-Sultan from 29 June to 1 July. Kazakhstan has the largest and strongest performing economy in the Central Asia region. Kazakhstan due to its geographic location in the heart of Central Asia offers an attractive platform for manufacturers, exporters and trading enterprisers. With increasing tourist activity in the country infrastructure offer new bus routes, new bus and coach services and fleets. The first edition in 2019 attracted almost 1,000 professionals from the bus and coach industry in the region.
Jakarta, the capital of Indonesia, will be the host during 25-27 August for Busworld Southeast Asia. The last edition had 36 exhibitors and 7,000 professionals from 21 countries. Indonesia has a population of 260 million people (40% of Asean population) spread over 34 provinces and that means that a lot of people need a lot of transport.
Busworld is the world's largest B2B exhibition for the bus and coach industry, exhibiting buses, coaches and minibuses, as well as parts, components and services. The first Busworld exhibition took place 50 years ago in the city of Kortrijk in Belgium in 1971.
