Debrecen has enjoyed a few dynamic years both from economic and cultural aspect.
Several multinational companies have decided to choose our town. New factories are being built, the infrastructure is developing, the summer cultural events attract hundreds of thousands of people, and the investment in the automotive industry actually rewrites the future of Debrecen.
In May 2019 a gap-filler event will be added to the program portfolio of the town and the region that is unheard of around here. The basic concept of the Car Display was extended, and this is how the idea emerged to organize the event named Debrecen drive - All that rolls, presenting the operators of the vehicle industry and the entire transport sector at a scale larger than ever.
The event, planned for a May weekend - when Children’s Day is - offers excellent free time activities for everyone. It is guaranteed by the unique location in the heart of the Great Forest and the wide range of programs.
I am positive that this two-day event will activate the residents of the region, and the range of exhibitions will make Debrecen Drive an outstanding event on a national level. In addition, the promising high-quality professional programs may assist integrating researchers and companies operating in the region into a unified community, according to the phrase “We form Debrecen together”.
The automotive industry has become a key economic sector, however, in addition to technological issues, more and more attention is paid to the environmental aspects of driving. The University of Debrecen - With its 40-thousand students and offering courses at 14 faculties and in 350 majors - is a dominant higher education institution of the country, offering degrees in most disciplines, and providing possibilities for research. Our institution supports the re-industrializing efforts of the government - started a few years ago - by re-structuring its education system. Our goal is to train outstanding engineers and inventors at our university, who will also excel in the automotive industry. Due to the technical training, research and the development, we have already developed intensive relationships with the large automotive companies new to Debrecen.
I believe that due to the educational and R&D work at the university, the visitors of Debrecen Drive will be presented innovative technical solutions realized and patented by the creativity of engineers from Debrecen. This time our future is formed on drawing boards. We believe, and we work to achieve that in the future the technical and engineer training at our university becomes essential when it comes to the automotive industry.
In addition to the renowned Travel Fair, our team organized the Car Display for the fourth time.
In line with the economic growth the demands are also changing, so this event has overgrown its original framework. Our institution, as the organizer of large events in Debrecen (Campus Festival, Zamat Festival), maintains close connection with the town and the University of Debrecen, as well as with several companies operating in the area. As a result, we are aware of the challenges faced by the automotive industry.
Debrecen Drive is an event equally suitable for the profession and the large audience, as well as for the young and the old, or for women and men. It addresses car lovers, non-professionals, enthusiasts of green solutions, old-timer lovers and those interested in the latest models. It is an event where not only passenger cars play the central role.
Our goal is to show samples of almost all means of transport, such as bicycles and small electric vehicles, sport and tour bikes, power engines and machinery, as well as a wide scale of “spectacle” vehicles and vehicles used for public purposes.
In addition to the exhibition, the visitors are welcome at various interactive programs, spectacular presentations, competitions and public or professional lectures.
