The seventh edition of Busworld Turkey, organised by Busworld International and its Turkish partner, HKF Trade Fairs, will be held for three days, from 19 to 21 April in hall B of Fuar Izmir.
The first Busworld exhibition was organized in Kortrijk, Belgium in 1971 and has achieved an international recognition by the bus and coach industry as being the oldest and most respected trade show in the industry. The first Turkish edition of the Busworld exhibitions took place in 2007. Now in 2018, the decision was made to move the exhibition from Istanbul to Izmir.
During the last edition in 2016 in Istanbul, the exhibition featured 145 companies of which 122 were Turkish and 23 were from abroad, coming from 12 different countries. These exhibitors welcomed 11.078 professional visitors of whom 1.519 came from overseas, along with 51 members of foreign press and media.
BMC, who booked the biggest booth in the exhibition, already confirmed to launch no less than ten new models of their city buses. Also Anadolu Isuzu and Otokar will bring premières to the show.
Next to buses, coaches and mini buses, the suppliers will present their newest products and services. Big international names like Allison Transmission, Cummins, Webasto and ZF are completing the product offer in the show.
