Car shows will slowly be back !
According to a recent press release by show organizers, after two years of coronavirus-induced cancellations, the Geneva International Motor Show is scheduled to return in February 2022.
For its 91st edition, press days for the 2022 Geneva auto show are scheduled for February 17-18. The show will then be open to the public February 19-27. Organizers are now asking exhibitors to register for the show, setting a deadline of mid-July 2021 for registrations. Yet, the show’s return is still contingent on the pandemic situation.
That could mean there would be a rush by automakers to introduce a totally new generation of battery-powered electric vehicles as concept cars or prototypes. As vaccinations accelerate and coronavirus numbers drop, auto shows are slowly returning. Auto Shanghai 2021 was held in February in the world’s largest new-car market, while the Chicago auto show will return in July, but in an abbreviated form. The New York auto show is scheduled to return in late August.
