Forum Europe are happy to announce that this year's edition of Connected Cars Europe will be taking place at Autoworld, Brussels.
Autoworld, the National Automobile Museum is located in the heart of Brussels, the capital of Europe. The impressive historic building, situated in the “Parc du Cinquantenaire“, was built to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the Kingdom of Belgium in 1880. From 1902 through to 1936 the building hosted motorcar and motorbike exhibitions, and since 1986 it has treasured a major part of Ghislain Mahy’s renowned collection.
Here in excess of 250 vehicles, ranging from cars, trucks and motorcycles are on permanent display. From the earliest models of the distant past to contemporary cars that prefigure the automobile of tomorrow and beyond, visitors are guided through the motorcar’s fabulous history dating as far back as 1896.
Various cars, representing the most exciting years of the automobile history since 1960, have recently joined the collection on display. A brilliantly designed scenography allows the visitors to approach and admire these wonderful cars from close by.
Zones are set aside focussing on the public services, cars owned by the Royal family, Micro and Bubble cars, the Design Story and Sports and Competition. Within the museum a complete “Belgium at Autoworld” area is dedicated to the roots and history of the Belgian car industry, including such prestigious makes as Minerva, FN and Imperia. The “Sports & Competition” zone sportingly displays the major racing and rallying milestones since 1906.
Autoworld is a museum on the move, with temporary exhibitions taking on various automotive themes organised throughout the year. Every two years Autoworld organises a major exhibition within a specific scenography. Past themes have ranged from Bugatti 100 Years, Belgian Racing Legends, Ferdinand Porsche, The Heritage and more recently Italian Car Passion.
