The organisers have also asked exhibitors to register their names to participate in the event by mid-July.

The 2020 Geneva Motor Show was cancelled last year for the first time since World War II. The iconic motor exhibition event was canceled after fears of the Covid-19 pandemic had forced Switzerland, the host country, to ban gatherings of more than a thousand people.

Sandro Mesquita, CEO of the Geneva International Motor Show (GIMS), said, "With the dispatch of the tender packages, we are now officially starting the organisation of GIMS 2022. My team and I can hardly wait to present our concept to the exhibitors and subsequently to the public. We really hope that the health situation and the corresponding policy regulations regarding COVID-19 will allow us to bring it to life."


A statement issued by the organisers hint that the iconic automotive event will not be the same next year due to Covid-related protocol and restrictions. The statement said, "As the 91st edition, this show promises to be an exciting evolution, which is reported to be substantially different from the past, assuming favourable pandemic conditions."

The Geneva International Motor Show was first held way back in 1905. Since then, the event has been held every year in March. It has been graced with debut of some of the most iconic cars over the years such as the Ferrari 250 California Spider, Porsche 904, Lamborghini Diablo, and Jaguar E-Type.
