The Geneva International Motor Show will return in 2023 – Robb Report

The Geneva International Motor Show is finally coming back.

One of the automotive industry’s biggest events will return in 2023, after a three-year absence. The Permanent Committee of the International Motor Show, which manages the Swiss event, made the announcement in a very simple “Save the Date” message posted on the show’s website on Monday morning. “We are very pleased to confirm that the Geneva International Motor Show will take place from February 14 to 19, 2023 at Palexpo, Geneva,” the full statement read. The event was last held in 2019.

In February 2020, the Geneva Motor Show was canceled days before its scheduled start after the Swiss government banned gatherings of more than 1,000 people due to the then-nascent coronavirus outbreak. In the years that followed, the organizers chose to be cautious. The 2021 event was canceled in June 2020. Then, in November 2021, the hold was removed from the 2022 edition.

Of course, plans to move forward with the auto show could still be subject to change amid a coronavirus that has produced several variants and increases in cases. Indeed, Monday’s statement came just hours after another major motoring event, the Beijing Motor Show, was announced to be postponed indefinitely, according to Motor1.com. Organizers of the biannual event, which was due to run from April 21 until the end of the month, said the event was delayed due to the rising number of Covid-19 cases in China, which is currently seeing its biggest increase. of cases. since the start of the pandemic. It is unclear if the show will take place later this year, which happened after the 2020 edition was postponed.

The return of the Geneva Motor Show will certainly be welcome among auto industry insiders. The nearly week-long event is one of the crown jewels of the motoring calendar, with brands from around the world lining up to show off their most extravagant vehicles. In 2019, this included the McLaren Speedtail, the Ferrari F8 Tributo and, what was at one time the most expensive new car in the world, the unique Bugatti “La Voiture Noire”. Amazingly, all of these cars went into production. We are still waiting for the all-electric Pininfarina Battista.
