Munich, October 2018 – The eMove360° Europe 2018 – International Trade Fair for Mobility 4.0 – Electric – Connected – Autonomous, which ended on Thursday evening, continues to grow. Around 260 exhibitors from 25 countries – the international share of 44 percent marks a new all-time high – presented their innovations and solutions for the mobility of the future during eMove360° Europe 2018, occupying more than 20 percent more space than last year. Robert Metzger, CEO of the organizer MunichExpo, expressed his delight in his summary of this year’s show: “I am delighted that we have continued our continuous growth and experienced a considerable increase in the number of visitors of 30 percent this year. In addition, many exhibitors have expanded their stand space after booking. It shows that our exhibitors are launching innovations at a high rate, which they want to present on our platform, which brings together supply and demand on a lobal level. “Eric Asunción, CEO of Wallbox, says of the world’s leading trade fair for mobility:” It was a huge event. The team has been working hard over the past few months to present our latest innovations and to receive positive feedback from the market, and today we are very proud to be a serious part of the energy transition as well as the e-mobility transition. The next few months will be exciting, as the show has generated great interest in our new Vehicle to Grid-DC charger.
Around 30 percent of the approximately 11,000 visitors came from outside of Germany. In addition to the high number, exhibitors praised the generally high quality of the conversations: “More than 90 percent of the visitors are professionals who are specifically looking for products and solutions for their requirements and approach the exhibitors with specific issues and buying interest. The fair has significantly expanded its status as the world’s leading trade fair for electric mobility. I am delighted that we are so successful in our approach of using electric mobility and autonomous driving as our core topics rather than as an adjunct to other topics such as renewable energy. We will continue to expand our position as the leading international trade fair in this field in the coming years” summarized Robert Metzger the eMove360° 2018.

Nearly 300 international participants praised the quality of the lectures as consistently very high.
