The 2022 Geneva Motor Show Postponed to 2023

While some auto shows will take place, the Geneva Motor Show has decided to hold off for another year

  • The Geneva International Motor Show is one of the largest shows in the world.

  • The GIMS committee blames industry-wide issues stemming from the pandemic.

We can only imagine the frustration felt by the Geneva International Motor Show’s organizing committee. While other events are still scheduled to take place, the 2022 edition of the GIMS will be postponed to 2023.

The reasons cited are not unexpected or unusual given the current ongoing pandemic and all the related complications. Other than continued travel restrictions for all, indirect complications such as the global chip shortage have made it impossible for automakers to commit to next year’s auto show.

“We have pushed very hard and tried everything to reactivate the Geneva International Motor Show in 2022”, says Maurice Turrettini, President of the Comité permanent du Salon international de l’automobile. “Despite all our efforts, we have to face the facts and the reality: the pandemic situation is not under control and presents itself as a big threat for a large indoor event like GIMS. But we see this decision as a postponement, rather than a cancellation. I am confident that the Geneva International Motor Show will come back stronger than ever in 2023.”

Meanwhile, the 2021 edition of the Los Angeles Auto Show is still scheduled for next November.
