The Geneva International Motor Show is an annual auto show held in March in the Geneva. The show is hosted at the Palexpo, a convention centre located next to the Geneva Cointrin International Airport, and organised by the Organisation Internationale des Constructeurs d'Automobiles, and is considered an important major international auto show.
First held in 1905, the show has hosted almost all major internal combustion engined models in the history of the automobile, along with benzene- and steam-powered cars from the beginning of the century. Exotic supercars often steal the spotlight during their debuts at the show. Prototypes, new equipment, technical breakthroughs, international partnerships, as well as political and social debates, have been announced at the exhibition. The show is regarded as a level playing field for the world's automakers, aided by the fact Switzerland lacks an auto industry of its own.
The Geneva International Motor Show (GIMS) 2022, as the 91st edition, this show promises to be an exciting evolution, which is reported to be substantially different from the past, assuming favourable pandemic conditions.
