The coach and bus industry trade exhibition will be held from 21 to 23 September 2022 at La Rural Trade Center in Buenos Aires it has been announced.

Alongside Busworld’s existing events in Brussels, Istanbul, Grapevine, Bangalore, Jakarta, Moscow and Nur-Sultan, the event is heading back to Latin America next year – a region organisers say is particularly important due to the area’s lack of an extensive rail network, meaning that buses and long distance coaches are extremely popular.

“This trade show has great potential in our eyes,” said Vincent Dewaele, CEO of Busworld International. “We believe Argentina is the perfect location for a Busworld show and, joining forces with Messe Frankfurt, we are ready to make it a great success. We invite all bus and coach stakeholders to join us in September 2022 to learn, meet and do business.”

“We are very happy with the arrival of Busworld Latin America to Argentina,” said Fernando Gorbarán, President and CEO of Messe Frankfurt Argentina. “Our subsidiaries have organized Busworld in both Russia and India, and we are excited to join and be part of the industry’s most important event in the region. In addition to employing thousands of people, buses and coaches symbolise meeting face-to-face, allowing us to close the distance after such a difficult year.”

Participants in the exhibition will include coach and bus operators, vehicle manufacturers, component, accessory and software suppliers, engineers, research and development personnel, researchers, operator federations, automotive federations, educational institutions, academics, civil servants, mobility experts, and all those linked to the bus industry.
