FIAA 2024 already features leading companies and operators

    With four months to go, FIAA (Spanish Bus & Coach trade association) is consolidating its position as the best opportunity for business thanks to the positive response from manufacturers and operators in the sector, along with associations and institutions’ unwavering support.

    The 15th edition of the International Bus and Coach Trade Fair, FIAA 2024, organised by IFEMA MADRID, will take place from 22 to 25 October and has already confirmed the participation of the main manufacturers, such as DAIMLER BUSES, IVECO or VOLVO Bus; as well as prominent members of the National Association of Bus Bodywork Manufacturers, ASCABUS, such as IRIZAR, UNVI, FERQUI, CARBUS NET, BEULAS and INDCAR, among almost one hundred participating companies from 14 countries.

    Furthermore, FIAA 2024 will host confirmed visits from the main public and private transport operators. They will have a dedicated area within the halls for networking with exhibitors and will hold sessions with the municipal transport companies from the main Spanish cities and with regional transport consortia from all over Spain.

    This event will also feature an important program of activities, including the fourth edition of the international Minibus of the Year award, recognizing the industry’s R&D efforts and judged by the International Bus of the Year jury.

    FIAA is making a strong effort to foster sectoral relationships and generating business opportunities both inside and outside Spain. To achieve this, it has developed an ambitious VIP buyers programme targeting priority markets, in collaboration with each country’s fleet associations and through a communication campaign in the target countries’ main specialised media.

    As always, we are grateful for the support and collaboration of the main industry associations, including ASCABUS, ANETRA, the National Association of Coach Transport Employers; ATUC, the Association of Urban and Metropolitan Public Transport; CONFEBUS, the Spanish Confederation of Bus Transport; DIREBUS, the Association of Coach Companies, and ANTROP, the National Association of Passenger Transport of Portugal.

    For all the above reasons, FIAA 2024 is consolidating its position as the most important trade fair in Spain and one of Europe’s best trade events. It is becoming the most important business hub in the sector, which only takes place once every two years, and a powerful commercial tool to showcase its value to the market and the competition.

    FIAA currently has a high occupancy rate of 85% in two halls covering 40,000m2, and the registration period for participation is still open for companies wishing to be present at the Fair.
