Munich. It starts again in about twelve weeks: The IMOT – International Motorcycle Exhibition opens from 24th to 26th. February 2023 their goals. Ticket sales are now underway on the trade fair website www.imot.de. Special note: The IMOT tickets are also valid for the large travel and leisure fair f.re.e running parallel at the exhibition center in Riem.
Since the first IMOT, the fair has become a fixture in its event calendar for two-wheelers fans in southern Germany. The organizers counted around 60,000 visitors almost every year in the MOC Event Center in Munich-Freimann. After a two-year pandemic break, a relocation of the fair is now due for the 30th anniversary: The new edition of IMOT runs from the 24th to the 26th. February 2023 on the grounds of Messe München in Riem. In halls C5 and C6 there is a full program with many new motorcycles, scooters and quads – both with internal combustion engines and electric drive. In addition, there are numerous suppliers of accessories and parts for customizing and tuning as well as all kinds of clothing for two-wheelers. Last but not least, many tour operators are also present at IMOT.
IMOT Managing Director Petra Zahradka sees the move with a laughing and a crying eye: “Over the past 29 years, the old location in the MOC has already grown very close to our hearts, so we have not made the decision to move easy. The framework conditions at the exhibition center have ultimately been decisive, because with the size of the halls and the entire infrastructure around them, there are great advantages for us and the visitors, I only mention the first-class parking facilities on site.” In the future, IMOT will have more than 20,000 square meters of exhibition space available in two large halls on the grounds of Messe München.
Another plus of the new location: IMOT opens its doors parallel to Bavaria’s largest travel and leisure fair. In this way, the organizers rely on common interests among their target groups. “The combination of IMOT and f.re.e is a real win-win situation, because this gives our regular audience access to an even larger offer,” explains Petra Zahradka. Since many motorcycle enthusiasts are also outdoor, sports and travel fans, visitors can only benefit from the wide range of both trade fairs at the same time in one place. The best thing about it: The IMOT tickets are also valid for f.re.e and vice versa.”
In order to keep the processing as simple as possible, IMOT tickets are only available online at www.imot.de. The tickets are available for 15 euros (adults) or 12 euros (reduced, with proof).
