The Geneva Motor Show, or GIMS, will take place in February next year, an event spokesman confirmed, ending months of speculation around one of Europe’s largest and longest-running car dealerships. The exhibition will run from 19 to 27 February in its traditional home in the exhibition halls of the Palexpo convention center near Geneva airport.
In 2020, the show was one of the first major events to be canceled as the coronavirus pandemic spread across Europe. This year’s show was also canceled due to the uncertainty surrounding COVID and the reluctance of automakers to attend.
In an email, representatives of the event organizers, the Geneva International Motor Show (GIMS), confirmed that the exhibition has received the “green light”. More details will be released shortly, the spokesman said.
“Information about potential exhibitors has not yet been published,” the source added.
Last month, GIMS, along with Qatar Tourism officials, announced plans to host a Middle East version of the Geneva Show in Doha, Qatar’s capital, in the fall of 2023. According to them, the exhibition will be held at the Doha Exhibition and Convention Center every two years, while the Geneva exhibition will continue to be held annually.
