16.02.2011 A real automotive « eyeful » in Geneva!
The 81st Geneva International Motor Show, from March 3-13 2011, will present an extensive overview of automotive technology and design. All the major manufacturers, renowned bodywork designers, and top preparation specialists will be dazzling visitors with nearly 170 World and European Premieres. The trend toward "green" will continue with more than 40 premieres utilizing alternative and ecological technologies.
In the 7 exhibition halls of Palexpo, some 80,000 square meters will be occupied by 260 exhibitors representing more than 700 brands from 31 different countries. One entire hall will be dedicated to automobile accessories and equipment suppliers.
Among the new exhibitors this year will be the preparation specialists Kellener Sport, MTM and Novidem, plus the bodywork designer Invader. In addition, the manufacturer GTA Motor will be presenting at the Geneva Show for the first time. The marque De Tomaso will return after a 9 year absence, as well as Ssangyong from Korea, which has missed the last two editions.
During the two press days preceding the public opening, more than 10,000 media representatives from around the world will be able to select from a total of 84 press conferences to attend. On the second press day the exhibitors in the Green Pavilion will present their concepts, technologies and fuel options for the future. For the less well known but very dynamic companies like Somtechnika, Niama-Reisser, iEV1, SynergEthic, EOS SAS, INNOMOT, Greentech Energy, Cogitare Urbem, Dow Kokam et Meco World, it will be a unique opportunity to present themselves in the spotlight of the Geneva Show.
The Geneva International Motor Show will be inaugurated on Thursday, March 3, 2011 in the presence of the President of the Swiss Confederation, Mrs. Micheline Calmy-Rey, plus numerous personalities from the worlds of politics, economics and industry. Some 700,000 visitors are expected during the 11 days of the Show, which will be open from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. during the week and from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. on the weekend.
Remember that the Geneva International Motor Show is not only one of the most attractive in the automobile world, but also one of the most "leading-edge". It is recognised as one of the "Top 5" international motor shows in the world.
To prepare your visit, to purchase your entry tickets online, and to enter the drawing to win a new car, log on as soon as possible to the official website of the Motor Show, which will be continuously updated.
