Sporting events are no longer the most preferred target for terrorists, according to the Department of Homeland Security. Outdoor events, conferences, festivals, and other events featuring public figures are all vulnerable. And with over a thousand different-level attacks since 2015, it’s no surprise that safety and security are among the top concerns for event professionals.
An exhibition for Bus and Coach only! Busworld Kortrijk is the biggest B2B bus and coach exhibition in the world and started in 1971 at in Belgium. It is dedicated to buses and coaches only, no other commercial vehicles are allowed, which makes this exhibition one of its kind.

The temporary pavilions have hard standing and are fully serviced. Many visitors arrive at the North main entrance which takes them straight into Hall 9, then into Hall 8, and thereafter to the permanent halls of the Busworld Xpo site.
