Covid-19 Event Information 

Due to the ongoing pandemic, Landesmesse Stuttgart GmbH has decided to cancel CMT 2022. In 2023, the event will be held at Messe Stuttgart as a physical edition. In 2021, the international trade fair had to run as a virtual event, which was a key factor in the successful continuing of the conversation. It cannot, however, replace a live exhibition. Due to these factors, the organisers have decided to postpone the 2022 edition. The official dates for the 2023 edition have been set! From January 14th to January 22nd, attendees can attendees the fair at Stuttgart, Germany. The fair's COVID-19 hygiene concept has been finalised, and organisers promise that cutting-edge protective measures will be in place. Compliance from visitors is expected!


CMT is an institution in Germany as a source of inspiration for travelers, who want to experience new destinations and travel packages, and a major marketplace for the travel market. Its very first edition took place in 1968 and with half a century under its belt, CMT is the perfect place to make an impression on serious buyers. The travel and tourism industry is incredibly fast paced and the trade fair gives you an accurate measure of new trends. You have the full product portfolio at your disposal. Exhibition space is dedicated to cars, motor homes, caravans, caravan equipment, tents, car accessories, travel literature, cruisers, bicycles, towing vehicles, convertibles, offroaders, e-bikes, pedelecs and segways. But you can also see travel packages to all over the world from Bhutan to Mexico. Discover different types of tourism – cycling, golf, wellness, cruise ships, health and culture.


At the beginning of every year, CMT delivers the hottest new travel trends and destinations. The annual trade fair takes place every January and sets the tone for the year to come.

Programming takes place at Messe Stuttgart and is put together by Landesmesse Stuttgart GmbH. Both the general public and professionals are given entry. Be sure to check in for official opening times closer to the trade fair dates. Next is commuting. If you’re not with a rental, then you can rely on the city’s public transport.
