Information

VETERAMA is a “market of veterans” which since 1975 has developed into Europe’s largest market for classical and vintage vehicles. Nowadays more than 4.000 exhibitors from all over Europe visit Mannheim on the second weekend in October. There they meet almost 50.000 collectors searching for sought-after spare parts or whole vehicles.

In order for collectors not to have to wait a full year for their next round of searches, VETERAMA also opens its gates in the springtime. For 30 years the VETERAMA spring kick-off-event was hosted by the city of Ludwigshafen, but was rather a regional event. Since 1992 the event at the Friedrich-Ebert-Park area was split into a “weekend for cars and motorcycles” and a pure “weekend for two-wheelers”.

For many years more and more exhibitors and visitors asked for another international VETERAMA weekend at the start of the season following the pattern of the Mannheim event. The search for a new exhibition area was finally successful. The Hockenheimring Baden-Württemberg now is the perfect location for VETERAMA to become the “largest vintage car market in Europe” in the springtime, too.

In the pit lane, the glass pavilion, and the whole paddock you now meet not only exhibitors and collectors from all over Europe, but also all the renowned old-timer clubs present themselves. The open air spaces along the Ring become discovery sites for spare parts, accessories, reading material, service providers for all topics concerning vintage vehicles, and a lot of historical technology. Whoever is looking for new activities in his home workshop, can strike a bonanza at the Hockenheimring.

VETERAMA is THE location for finds of long sought-after parts and vehicles.

Marketplace (complete vehicles)

If you just want to sell your complete vehicle, you book a selling space in the sales hall or in one of the open air spaces.

Sales booths

You are a professional or private trader and wish to offer goods for sale or trade, then you book one of our sales booths.

Clubs

You represent a club and would like to win new members or invite active members to pit talks, then you book one of our club stands.

Newcomers

You offer new products with regard to old- and young-timers, then this is the location to meet potential new customers.
