It takes months for the exhibits to be built up for the Frankfurt autoshow.
A this year's show - close to a million people came to see the IAA show over eight days! On the press day there was just over 11K people, while on a public day(s) there is over 120K people - at the show!!!
I believe that the Paris Autoshow is held in the off years of the IAA. So you might want to go to that.
Thanks so much for the information, I might just do that, fly to London UK then take the Eurostar to Paris. My plan was to visit both cities anyway (Museum Tour) then pick up a new 2012 BMW at Die Welt in München. I'll keep an eye out for the date of the next IAA.
Hertzlichen Dank nochmals
(Thank you again).
