IFEMA and the FIAA Organising Committee have confirmed that the next international bus and coach trade fair to be held in the halls at Feria de Madrid will take place from 6 to 9 October 2020.

These dates place FIAA again in the last quarter of the even years and, according to sector representatives – manufacturers, body-maker companies and road passenger transportation professionals – this will allow for better promotion of the event.

Several action lines to be developed were also agreed during the FIAA Committee meeting. Among these, the campaign aimed at promoting the presence of international exhibitor and purchaser companies, with a special focus on Portugal, the rest of Europe and in 2020, the Latin American market as well.

There will also be a focus on attracting other user segments, such as tourism operators, towns, school transport, etc. to promote bus transportation, highlighting its social, economic and environmental advantages.

The aim is to continue with the consolidation of the FIAA as the main professional meeting point of the sector in the Mediterranean and Southern Europe.

The committee comprises the main manufacturing brands of buses and coaches, as well as the main associations of bus users and entrepreneurs, among which are Ascabus, the National Association of Bus Body Manufacturers, the ancillary industry companies, as well as road passenger transportation professionals, represented by Confebus, (Confederation of Bus Transportation), Atuc which is the association of management companies for collective urban transportation, and Anetra, the national association of coach transportation entrepreneurs.
