THE GENEVA INTERNATIONAL MOTOR SHOW IS CANCELLED!

The Geneva International Motor Show is an annual auto show held in March in the Swiss city of Geneva. The GIMS was first held in 1905, and ever since is the biggest annual event in the automotive industry.

March is the time when the most renowned manufacturers in the world unveil their latest releases. Through forms of transport for today or ideas for tomorrow, from the efficient urban car to the dream hypercar. The Geneva International Motor Sport event brings together tradition, passion and innovation.

This year’s 90th edition was cancelled due to the COVID-19 virus outbreak. Maurice Turrettini, Chairman of the Foundation Board, said: “We regret this situation, but the health of all participants is our and our exhibitors' top priority. This is a case of force majeure and a tremendous loss for the manufacturers who have invested massively in their presence in Geneva. However, we are convinced that they will understand this decision,"

The Geneva show was scheduled to take place from March 3 to March 15, with the official opening ceremony scheduled for the 5th of March. The annual event is visited by over 600,000 people every year. Despite the cancellation of the 90th edition of the GIMS, most manufacturers are pressing ahead with their planned unveilings. And we can't wait to find out more.

The organisation has decided to offer to the public, fans and the media – partly live experience – the streaming of the press conferences and presentations of the world premieres organised by the manufacturers in different locations.

From Tuesday 3 March 2020, at 8.00 am CET, the various events will be broadcast - and subsequently available on the GIMS’ official website.
