“The 81st Geneva International Motor Show ended on Sunday after welcoming more than 735,000 visitors. All of the exhibitors have expressed a high level of satisfaction with this year’s edition which seems to have definitively marked the end of the automobile crisis.
Never before have so many new models been presented. The public showed a particular interest in the many vehicles containing alternative technologies and means of propulsion. The next edition has been scheduled for March 8-18, 2012.” www.salon-auto.ch
This week the Sports and Activities department arranged a trip to the world renowned Geneva Motor show at the Palexpo near to the Geneva Airport.
“First held in 1905, the Salon has hosted almost all major internal combustion engine models in the history of the automobile, along with benzene- and steam-powered cars from the beginning of the century. Exotic supercars often steal the spotlight during their debuts at the show. Prototypes, new equipment, technical breakthroughs, international partnerships, as well as political and social debates, have been announced at the exhibition.
The show is regarded as a level playing field for the world’s automakers.” wikipedia
It was amazing experience rounded off by an afternoon of shopping in Geneva City.
