Messe Essen looks to the future

The European Taxi Fair will take place 4-5 November 2022.

Oliver.

Dr Michael Stehr, managing director of the Fachvereinigung Personenverkehr Nordrhein, Taxi-Mietwagen e. V., a German association for taxi and car rentals, added: “Essen has convinced us in every respect as a location for the European Taxi Fair.
