Busworld Europe 2023 will be back at the Brussels Expo from 7th to 12th October 2023. With 500 exhibitors and an expected 40,000 visitors, Busworld Europe 2023 is set to be the ultimate one-stop shopping destination for all things related to buses and coaches. Four years after the last edition, the exhibition promises to make a real ‘bang’. Busworld Europe returns to Brussels, for the second time after the move from Courtrai, and the organisers’ expectation, as mentioned above, is to reach 40,000 visitors and 500 exhibitors.
In an interview with us in May, Busworld CEO Mieke Glorieux had quantified the number of new companies at the fair at 27 per cent. We only have to wait a little over a month to see if the 2023 edition of the fair will beat the extraordinary results of 2019, when the fair ended with 39 thousand visitors from 143 countries, 511 exhibiting companies, 309 vehicles on display and 154 speakers in the conference programme.

However, the excitement doesn’t end there, as the event also welcomes newer players such as JBM (India), MCV (Egypt), Marcopolo (Brazil), etc. who are eager to make their mark in this part of the world.
“With hundreds of exhibitors on display, visitors to Busworld Europe 2023 will be treated to a dazzling array of the latest buses, coaches, and a wide range of related suppliers. Whether it’s cutting-edge vehicle technology, eco-friendly solutions, or state-of-the-art safety features, the event promises to have something for everyone. Moreover, visitors will have the unique opportunity to cast their votes for the most innovative products, encouraging healthy competition and recognition of excellence. Mixing BUSiness with pleasure”, Busworld states.
This year, Busworld Europe takes a step further in enhancing the visitor experience with a new digital platform: the Busworld App. Attendees can access exhibitor profiles, product information, and the floorplan conveniently in one place. This digital platform also facilitates connections with other visitors, making networking and information exchange easier and more efficient than ever before. Visitors can prepare for their visit well in advance, allowing them to maximize their time at the event and enjoy the various offerings without feeling overwhelmed.
