For decades the fair has been held in November every two years. After a break of four years, the fair restarted in November 2022, at the trade fair grounds in the Grugapark in Essen. On 4 and 5 November 2022 more than 70 exhibitors presented their products and services, and a total of some 11,000 interested business owners, drivers and participants with an economic or administrative connection to the trade attended the European Taxi Fair. The visitors came from all over Germany and other European countries.

We are looking forward to greeting them and are delighted that the European Taxi Fair is returning to Cologne!”
