The Essen Motor Show is an auto show held annually in the city of Essen, Germany. It has been described as "the showcase event of the year for the tuning community"[1] and as the German version of the annual SEMA auto show in Las Vegas.[2] As contrasted with the Frankfurt Auto Show, the Essen show is smaller and is focused on car tuning and racing interests.[3]

Essen Motor Show was the world's biggest car tuning fair before SEMA.[citation needed]
