"The Salon International de l'Auto (or Geneva Motor" Geneva Local Custom Tip by eranda

Geneva Local Customs: 52 reviews and 62 photos


The Salon International de l'Auto (or Geneva Motor Show) is an annual auto show held in March in the Swiss city of Geneva. The show started in 1905 and is now the only annual automobile show in Europe. The show is held at Palexpo, a giant convention center. The Salon is scheduled by the Organisation Internationale des Constructeurs d'Automobiles, which considers it a major international auto show.

Almost all motor combustion models have been featured in the show. Models ranging from benzene to steam, with many exotic and supercars stealing the spotlights throughout the 20th century. Prototypes, new equipment, technical breakthroughs, and international partnerships as well as political and social debates are all landmarks of this international exhibition.
