Geneva International Motor Show 2019: Registrations are now open! The 89th Geneva International Motor Show is open to new ideas: The regulations for the 2019 Motor Show have been made more flexible. Participants from all domains of individual transportation can now inscribe. In addition, the Motor Show will better respond to the needs of both exhibitors and visitors and will put the emphasis on the future trends for the automobile industry. Inscriptions for interested exhibitors will are open since May 1 to July 1, 2018. The 89th Geneva International Motor Show will take place from March 7-17, 2019 at Palexpo in Geneva. The world of individual transportation is changing: manufacturers and suppliers must come to grips more and more the questions regarding the electrification of vehicles and connected mobility, driverless vehicles, packages of digital services or transportation services. For these reasons the Organising Committee of the Motor show have reviewed its General Regulations and will adapt a number of improvements for the Geneva International Motor Show 2019. The categories authorized in Article 4 have been expanded. The Motor Show will be open to all facets of individual transportation, and in particular: • To suppliers in relation to highway transportation, • To presenters of connected transportation from the electronics sector. • To suppliers of original equipment for individual transportation, • To all of the products in the portfolios of automobile manufacturer. These changes will allow exhibitors to present their partners and suppliers in the most favourable manner possible and will offer considerable flexibility for the choice of products and objects to be exhibited. « Our objective is that the Geneva International Motor Show 2019 will become even more modern and focused on the future without losing the perspective of its nearly 100 years of history » declared André Hefti, General Manager. «We will present to the visitors everything that the manufacturers and suppliers are doing with their current developments and what they are proposing for the future. » The 2018 Geneva International Motor Show confirmed once again its importance as its exhibition halls were full and with the presentation of 157 World and European Premiers. More than 660,000 visitors from all over the world were registered during the 11 public days. The highlights of this year’s Motor Show can be found at the official website: www.gims.swiss. Our objective is that the Geneva International Motor Show 2019 will become even more modern and focused on the future without losing the perspective of its nearly 100 years of history The allocation of the exhibition spaces will remain the same as in preceding years For 2019, as with the last number of years, Halls 1 and 6 of Palexpo will be reserved for manufacturers, preparation specialists and for designers. Hall 7 will again be dedicated to the Swiss Automotive Industry. The concept for 2018 which gave the small and medium size enterprises presenting in Hall 7 the choice to participate with an individual stand for the full duration of the Motor Show or for a shorter term (from March 7-11), organised in conjunction with the SAA (Swiss Automotive Aftermarket), will continue in 2019. They will be presenting the latest trends and innovations in the accessories and equipment market for all types of vehicles. The time-frame is limited for inscriptions of interest.

EXTRA INFO
Adults CHF 16.- Children (from 6 to 16) and Pensioners CHF 9.- Groups (min. 20 people) CHF 11.- /each Another Milestone: The 89th edition of the Geneva International Motor Show. The Geneva International Motor Show is launching a new edition: The 2019 Show will be presented with a new look that includes a new graphic for the publicity campaign and a completely revised web site. The number of inscriptions for the next GIMS is promising so far and the past exhibitors are remaining loyal to the Geneva Show. Early information is now available on the website and on social media links for GIMS (www.gims.swiss and #GimsSwiss). New publicity campaign theme Nearly six months before the next Geneva International Motor Show (GIMS) on March 7-17, 2019, the GIMS is presenting its new visual identity. The motif of the publicity campaign for the next edition will focus on the theme „liquid”. In the graphic the automobile moves completely into the centre of attention. Initially the graphic was developed by an animation. „The automobile is created in this way to represent the fresh dynamism of the Motor Show and that of its exhibitors. Each year more than one hundred innovations in the domains of technology, design, security and comfort are presented at this event,” explained André Hefti, General Manager of the GIMS. The graphic is a luminous and colourful invitation to the next edition of the GIMS. The agency Wirz Brand Relations AG from Zurich was responsible for the conceptualization and realization of this graphic. Re-launch of the web site Beginning today, the GIMS is online with a new web site. The conception and content of the web site www.gims.swiss has been entirely re-thought and its functionality has been optimized. Photos gain in importance. Andre Hefti, General Manager of the GIMS: „The web site allows us to address automobile fans and our visitors in one part and to the exhibitors and media representatives in another in a more targeted and secure manner. “ The re-launch and the ongoing maintenance of the website is the responsibility of the digital communications agency Details SA from Geneva. The 89th edition of the Geneva International Motor Show 2019 With the exception of Ford and the other absentees from the 2018 edition, all the major automobile manufacturers will be represented at the GIMS in 2019. Volvo will not have its own stand but the Volvo Car Group will be represented at the next GIMS with a much larger stand for the Polestar marque. 26 new exhibitors have inscribed for the 2019 edition, including the Chinese marque Changan. „We are very satisfied that a major Chinese auto manufacturer will be presenting for the first time at GIMS, as the Chinese automobile market and industry has enormous potential for the future” declared André Hefti. The Swiss Federal office of Energy, SFOE, will also be continuing their orientation towards the future. For the fourth time as „Presenting Partner” to the GIMS 2019 it will continue its campaign „co2auplancher”. The SFOE encourages and gives recognition to vehicles who respect the environment by emitting no more than 95 grams of CO2/km. Further, once again the chronometer maker TAG Heuer will be present with a fascinating special exhibition in homage to the world of motorsports. "Shift AUTOMOTIVE - Campus of the Future" After a successful start to „Shift AUTOMOTIVE” at the international electronics exhibition IFA for the general public in Berlin in early September, the GIMS has been working on a concept that will follow on to this project. During the GIMS 2019, a campus with information platforms will be established in the exhibition halls where visitors can discover and learn how new technologies in the domains of electronics and the automobile industry are changing the world of transportation. "The project Shift AUTOMOTIVE- Campus of the Future” is ambitious as we are entering into totally new territory and so we are searching for new exhibitors with these interests. For this reason we invite all interested exhibitors in the domains of new technologies related to mobility to make contact with us,” declared André Hefti.
