Organizers, exhibitors and visitors agreed: The 18th edition of the Stuttgart Retro Classics was a complete success! Our friend and photographer Rainer Selzer captured the action of the Retro Classics in this stunning gallery.
The catchment area of Retro Classics has once again expanded: this time, not only guests from neighboring European countries were welcomed, but also from Australia or Singapore. Overall, the “retro” is becoming more international: about 15 percent of visitors came from abroad, an increase of 25 percent over the previous year. Most of the guests came from Switzerland, followed by Austria, France and Italy. The largest increase came from the Alpine republic. In addition to the vehicle sales market (31%) and the parts market (30%), the focus was on the topic of “Passione Italiana” (24%), the special show BMW (24%), US cars (22%), historic commercial vehicles and buses (21%) and not least the Neo Classics (20%) – that was the result of a representative survey. The next issues of Retro Classics in Stuttgart (without scheduling conflicts with competitors) will take place from 7th to 10th of March 2019 and from 27th February to 1st of March 2020.
