The next e4TESTIVAL will take place live with us at the Hockenheimring from March 19 to 21, 2021 with a great mobility and event program for the whole family.
Thomas Reister, emodrom-group CEO: “When I came up with the idea of a new active driving trade fair format in 2016, it was not foreseeable that almost all major trade fairs, such as the IAA and the Geneva Motor Show, were now looking for it, as static exhibitions are overtaken and especially young target groups can no longer be reached. With Alexander Nieland, Ursula Kloe and Jürgen Häussler from JU-KNOW, I have found committed colleagues who are further developing the format successfully with other great projects such as the e4 Start Up Award. I would like to thank the whole team, the jury and especially the applicants with their great ideas and congratulate the winners!
Above all, I am pleased that Minister Winfried Hermann took over the patronage for the award this year and that we are following the transformation of the world-famous Hockenheimring Baden-Württemberg racetrack into a mobility center with interest, as he explained to me at the last e4TESTIVAL. “
