Geneva International Motor Show (GIMS) Canceled Once Again; will come back in 2023

– The GIMS was to be held from February 19 to 27, 2022

– The show has been canceled due to the coronavirus pandemic

The 2022 Geneva International Motor Show (GIMS), which was scheduled to be held February 19-27, has been canceled due to the coronavirus pandemic. This is the third year in a row that the show has been postponed due to COVID-19.

According to an official statement released by the organizers of the event, the motor show, which is held annually in Geneva, has been postponed to 2023 not only due to the coronavirus, but also due to the shortage of semi- drivers, which they believe is currently the top priority for OEMs to resolve.

Speaking on the occasion, Sandro Mesquita, CEO of the Geneva International Motor Show, said: “Many exhibitors have indicated that the uncertainties caused by the COVID-19 pandemic are preventing them from making a firm commitment to GIMS 2022. On top of that is the negative impact that the current semiconductor shortage is having on automakers. The chip crisis is expected to drag on until next year, with negative financial implications for OEMs. In these uncertain times, many brands are therefore unable to commit to participating in a trade fair that would have taken place in just over four months. Considering all the factors, it became clear that there was a need to postpone the show and break the news as soon as possible to avoid canceling in the short term.
