The Geneva Motor Show returns after a four-year absence with a new concept. Although there will be no dynamic section like at the IAA Mobility in Munich, there will be four different themed areas: Adrenaline Zone, Design District, Mobility Lab and Next World. And a relic from pre-pandemic times will be continued in 2024 after all: The Car of the Year award. It is scheduled for 26 February at 8 am. 

Otherwise, the new edition could be a rather meagre event. Only the Renault Group (with the Renault and Dacia brands) is represented at the show as a European car manufacturer. The other "classic" manufacturers, who will make up the lion's share of the Palexpo site, come from ... China. 

In terms of visitor numbers, it could therefore be a fairly relaxed trade fair. So if you want to go there and still need information and details, here you will find everything about the Geneva Motor Show 2024.

The opening hours

The Geneva Motor Show 2024 will take place from 26 February to 3 March. The first day is dedicated to the media, while 27 February is the VIP day, when the Auto.Future.Now forum will take place where personalities from the automotive world such as Luca de Meo (CEO Renault), Natalie Robyn (CEO FIA) and Chris Bangle (designer and CEO of Chris Bangle Associates) will talk about the future of the automobile.
