The 96th Brussels International Motor Show, the 2018 European Auto Show season, concluded in Belgium yesterday.
The major international manufacturers exhibited at the exhibition the most important innovations and new and electric cars and self-driving was the most prominent attendance at the exhibition.
The Belgian Automobile Federation said that the motor show was attended by nearly 600,000 visitors despite a shorter opening period this year than previous sessions.
The Brussels exhibition is undoubtedly one of the oldest and oldest international exhibitions, organized for the first time in 1902. But the outbreak of World War II prevented the organization of the exhibition between 1915 and 1919 and was reorganized in 1920 and lasted until 1939 when the Second World War broke out, and that year before the outbreak of war the Belgians celebrated their 30th exhibition. The organization resumed in 1948 and continues today.
There were, of course, many changes to the display pavilions, in parallel with the development of the automotive industry itself. Since 1978, in view of the increasing number of exhibits and the multiplicity of purposes of the vehicles and the goals for which they were made, it was decided to adopt the system (doubles and singles) in which the years ended with an even number for the display of passenger cars and motorcycles and the years ending with an individual number for the display of commercial vehicles ie trucks and buses. So the current show is dedicated to cars and motorcycles. The exhibition occupies a 15-square-meter square in the exhibition grounds near the Royal Gardens in the north of the capital city. It accommodates tens of thousands of visitors and is attended by about 300 companies connected to the automotive industry and its services. [/rtl]
