CAFAM and Messe Frankfurt confirm Salón Moto 2022

12 May 2022

The event will take place from October 27 to 30, 2022 at La Rural Trade Center.

The next edition of this international event, which fans of two wheels eagerly await, is already confirmed. Salón Moto, the only exhibition that brings together the entire motorcycle industry, will reopen its doors in 2022. Organized by the Chamber of Motorcycle Manufacturers (CAFAM) and Messe Frankfurt Argentina, it will be the second edition of the sector’s most important international meeting.

The event will feature the main players of the motorcycle industry, who for four days will present their novelties and prototypes, and announce their product launches and tests.

National and international companies have already confirmed their participation and, in addition to motorcycle manufacturers, companies from related fields – such as equipment suppliers, vendors of accessories and motorcycle parts, and clothing, among others – will also be present.


The first edition of Salón Moto in Buenos Aires was a success, with more than 60,000 visitors from various countries. 80 exhibitors and 120 brands showcased their products in an area of 20,000 sqm of exhibition space.

“We are very excited to once again organize this event together with Messe Frankfurt," said Mr. Lino Stefanuto, President of CAFAM. "Here we can show the value that our industry generates through commitment and drive, and also showcase its future potential. It will be a key venue to continue strengthening ties with our users, and for the entire value chain to develop new business opportunities”.

“After two years of not being able to meet face-to-face," said Fernando Gorbarán, President and CEO of Messe Frankfurt Argentina, "we are convinced that an event such as Salón Moto will be the ideal place to reunite companies with their fans and clients. All the trade fairs that we can now finally carry out have a festive atmosphere as their common denominator. Nothing replaces meeting face-to-face, and I also believe that, for this particular industry, meeting is part of its DNA. From Messe Frankfurt Argentina we are happy to confirm the realization of Salón Moto”.
