[Editor’s note: The following letter was issued by Karen Vogelsang, executive director of the Essen Trade Shows].
By now, you have probably read that the Reifen trade show is going to be held in Cologne as of 2018.
This statement is incorrect and I would like to clarify it. The Reifen trade show is organized and owned by Messe Essen. The BRV German Tire Association – was a sponsor of the show and has decided to part ways with Messe Essen and try and start a new show in Cologne in 2018. We thank them for their past partnership, however, the world leading Reifen trade show, which you all know and love, will continue to take place in Essen, Germany in 2018 and on. We ask for your continued support and look forward to many more years of cooperation with you.
