The 90th edition of the Geneva International Motor Show will no longer be taking place this year due to the coronavirus outbreak.

28 Feb 2020 | International News : Switzerland


The 2020 Geneva Motor Show has been cancelled due to the coronavirus outbreak.

The organisers of the event have announced on the Motor Show's official website that the 90th edition of the Geneva International Motor Show (GIMS) will no longer be taking place. This is in conjunction with the Swiss Federal Council ruling of 28 February 2020 that no events with more than 1,000 people are allowed to take place in Switzerland until 15 March 2020. The decision falls just three days before the opening of the exhibition to the media.

"We regret this situation, but the health of all participants is our and our exhibitors' top priority. This is a case of force majeure and a tremendous loss for the manufacturers who have invested massively in their presence in Geneva. However, we are convinced that they will understand this decision," said Maurice Turrettini, Chairman of the Foundation Board, "We would like to warmly thank all those involved in the organisation of the 2020 edition of GIMS."
