The Corona pandemic and the associated restrictions for visitors from Germany and abroad have prompted the organizers of the International Karting Exhibition to postpone the 29th edition by one year to 14-15 January 2023. The venue will remain the Westfalenhalle in Dortmund.
A few months ago, the Kartmesse presented its new program for the future. After many years in Offenbach am Main in Hessen, the world’s largest kart show is moving to Dortmund. But the comeback will have to wait another year. “The increasing restrictions in connection with the Corona pandemic are currently making it very difficult to hold the event. We are an international exhibition and of course we want to give our exhibitors the chance to welcome all visitors,” explains Kartmesse Managing Director Marcel Fuchsberger.
But everything is already set for 2023. From 14-15 January, the 29th edition will take place in the spacious exhibition halls of the Westfalenhalle Dortmund. With the move to the Ruhr region, the karting exhibition is entering unfamiliar territory and taking advantage of the good infrastructure. With significantly more open exhibition halls, more space, direct parking and good air, train and motorway connections, the trade fair location offers numerous advantages.
The current exhibition plans will soon be published on the karting exhibition’s website at www.kartmesse.de and will be available for booking for 2023. “We have already had great demand for the planned 2022 version and are receiving positive feedback on the changes that have been made. Now we are looking ahead to 2023 and a new, large and more extensive Kartmesse than there has ever been,” continues Fuchsberger.
