Car enthusiasts everywhere look forward to innovations in their favorite cars in terms of design, speed and technology. Geneva annually demonstrates the best of the best when it comes to the automotive industry.
Geneva has long been less about the business of auto-making, more about the look – the design – of it. The Geneva Motor Show is held on neutral ground in Switzerland. All other major global shows – Frankfurt, Tokyo, Detroit, Shanghai/Beijing – are hosted by countries where auto-making is a key industry. Switzerland is famous for banks and other money-managing businesses, along with watches, chocolate and a host of non-governmental agencies such as the World Health Organization and the International Olympic Committee.
No one has a home-field advantage – or disadvantage – in Geneva.
Here, the designers and the visionaries take the stage, with the messy business side of the industry taking a back seat to old-style automotive glitz and glamour.
