Antwerp/Stuttgart. From 23 – 26 August 2012 1,594 smart fans from 27 countries came to Antwerp for the world’s largest gathering of the smart community – and set a new world record with the longest ever smart parade. On Saturday 1,114 vehicles drove through the streets of the Belgian city and the third largest European seaport watched by enthusiastic spectators. All CO2 emissions produced from driving during the big four-day event will be compensated by reforestation. Together with the international non-profit organisation WeForest smart will plant 5,200 trees in Kenya. Next year smart times will take place in Lucerne.
