Geneva autosalon, 6 March 2008

The International Geneva Motor Show (French: Salon International de l'Auto) is an annual auto show held in March in the Swiss city of Geneva. The show is hosted at the Geneva Palexpo, a convention centre located next to the Geneva Cointrin International Airport. The Salon is organised by the Organisation Internationale des Constructeurs d'Automobiles, and is considered an important major international auto show.[1]

First held in 1905, the Salon 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.[2]

Sections[edit]

Areas of the show:

  1. Motor cars 3 or 4 or more wheels.
  2. Electric cars and alternative powered cars.
  3. Special bodywork for motor cars, car design, engineering.
  4. Converted cars (tuners).
  5. Accessories and parts for motor cars
  6. OEM : original equipment manufacturers
  7. Workshop installations for the repair and maintenance of motor cars
  8. Miscellaneous products and services related to the car industry
  9. Animation / Attractions.
