Quite simply because it’s the spiritual home of the motorcar. PLUS, we are located 5 minutes from Stuttgart Airport at the Messe Stuttgart, making it ideal if you are visiting from abroad.
Since being home to the invention of the car in 1886 — Karl Benz’s Benz Patent-Motorwagen — Stuttgart has continued to be part of a prominent force in Europe’s automotive cluster. Now home to the headquarters of Mercedes-Benz, Porsche, Bosch, and Mahle, Stuttgart and the Baden-Württemberg state generate billions in automotive manufacturing.
Today, vehicle manufacturers in Stuttgart work closely with R&D specialists, SMEs, service providers, and others to deliver world-class vehicles and innovations in intelligent, environmentally sound transport solutions.
It's fitting that manufacturers, engineers, and suppliers converge at The Electric & Hybrid Vehicle Technology Expo Europe, in the birthplace of the car: Stuttgart.
