Middle Eastern VW clubs set for Wörthersee Treffen

The Wörthersee Treffen motor show — one of the largest car events on the global calendar — is gearing up to take place again this month from May 29 to June 2 at the Austrian resort of Lake Wörthersee.
Established around 35 years ago, and attracting the largest gathering of Volkswagen car enthusiasts at one time, the week-long event welcomes over 100,000 visitors from across the globe annually. This year, the winners from Dub Drive GCC 2019, the Middle East’s annual club gathering, will also represent their clubs at the automotive event.
Members of Volkswagen clubs from Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, Kuwait, Dubai, Abu Dhabi and Oman earned their place at Wörthersee Treffen having set themselves apart from the rest at this year’s Dub Drive GCC.
“From the most sought-after clubs to rare and unique cars, the winners represent the heartbeat of the Volkswagen brand in the Middle East,” the carmaker said.
The Volkswagen Passenger Cars brand is present in over 150 markets and produces vehicles at more than 50 locations in 14 countries.
