SUCCESSFUL: Visitor numbers and takings beat all expectations Photo credit: Twitter

ATTENDANCE at the combined vehicle fair held at the IFA Exhibition Centre in Alicante was so high that exhibitors reported taking €30,000,000 in sales…much more than ever expected.

The 41st holding of FIRAUTO, 27th EXPOCAR and the 9th SOBRE2RUEDAS that specialise in new, used cars and motorcycles respectively was held over three days last weekend and was branded a great success all-round.   The exhibition was dedicated to bringing new motors to the attention of the visitors and reporting on developments in the world of automobiles of all sizes, shapes, styles and prices.

This combination event has become the most supported since records of attendance began with more than 33,000 visitors over the Friday, Saturday and Sunday.  The numbers were 8,000 up compared to the equivalent fair in May and the success is entirely attributed to the fact that the entire venue was used, an extra 120 exhibitors, and an increased variety of vehicles on display.

During the weekend, the sale of vehicles was relentless.  In total, around 2,500 vehicles were sold which accounted for more than €30,000,000 in sales…much higher than the previous exhibitions.

Both exhibitors and visitors expressed their 100 per cent satisfaction with the fair and have already expressed their interest in taking part again and visiting again next year.
