Geneva's motor show zooms on: it's time for the 74th Geneva International Motor Show. Swiss News brings the details to the show's enthusiastic visitors.

Fonction Event

Last year, despite the Iraq war, SARS and the economic gloom, Genera Palexpo stayed on course as visitors geared up to fill the halls and see what was new and unique at the world famous show.

The International Motor Show and ITU World Telecom were the first events to make use of the extra 20,000 square metres of the newly commissioned 'Hall 6'.

This year, the total exhibition area of Geneva Palexpo is likely to get all booked by car enthusiasts for the 74th Geneva International Motor Show.

A new poster designed by the Label Communication Agency (Geneva), pulls at the emotional chords of presenting major premieres at the Show. Rather like a stage show, it depicts that magical moment when the spotlights come on, where dreams merge with reality.
