With the Geneva Motor Show being cancelled back in 2020, the 2021 edition, too, was given a miss due to the pandemic and lack of participants. The show however, is finally slated to return in 2022.

Back in 2020, organisers had hinted that the Geneva Motor Show was set to return in 2021 with a few changes in its format. It was expected that the show would now be a mix of physical as well as virtual events keeping in mind the new normal that was setting in because of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The show in 2022, however, is expected to remain in its normal physical form. The dates have officially been set for between February 17 and 27. While there is no word from auto manufacturers about their attendance at the event, the event is expected to represent a return to normality.

Of course, all of this hangs on the coronavirus thread and whether the pandemic will have abated enough to allow for large-scale gatherings as well as international travel.

The Geneva Motor Show was sold to Palexpo SA after the Foundation of the Geneva International Motor Show (FGIMS) turned down a 14.1 million pound loan from the state of Geneva. The new organisers have now promised that the new format will be an evolution of the past events.

Sandro Mesquita, CEO of GIMS, said, “With the dispatch of the tender packages, we are now officially starting the organisation of GIMS 2022. My team and I can hardly wait to present our concept to the exhibitors and subsequently to the public. We really hope that the health situation and the corresponding policy regulations regarding COVID-19 will allow us to bring it to life.”
