2023 Geneva International Motor Show Qatar

The Geneva International Motor Show is an annual auto show that will be held this year in Doha, Qatar, where 30 car manufacturers will participate. Those planning to come to the fair have something to look forward to, as ten new cars will be presented.

In 2020, the coronavirus pandemic canceled the Geneva International Motor Show. This was the reason for the organizers to look for an alternative, so they reached an agreement with the government of Qatar that, for the next two years (2021 and 2022), the biennial exhibitions will be held in Doha during the fourth quarter along with the annual exhibitions in Switzerland during the first quarter. That will happen this year as well.

“Excitement is building for the first edition of the Qatar show in Doha, which is only a few months away. We are on track to make this event the new, premier car show in the Middle East and to bridge the gap between the exciting automotive industries in the East and the West. One of our exhibitor has participated in every edition of the Geneva Motor Show since 1924 and will join us in Doha with the same enthusiasm,” said Sandro Mesquita, Director of the International Geneva Motor Show.

The event will begin with an exclusive opening ceremony on October 5, and two days later the general public will be able to visit the event. GIMS Qatar is scheduled to take place at the same time as the Formula 1 race weekend in Qatar (between October 6 and 8). In addition to the unveiling of the new cars, the Qatar National Museum will host a forum on the future of automotive design.

Meanwhile, preparations are underway for the next GIMS, which is celebrating its 100th anniversary, and the focus will be on the development of mobility. “Geneva offers an opportunity to highlight the path of industry in the next century on this special anniversary. It will be a platform to showcase the outstanding research and development work of companies around the world,” concluded Mesquita.
