The Swiss Catwalk


 The Geneva Auto Show held in march in the swiss city of Geneva, is hosted at the Geneva palexpo and is a public exhibition of current automobile models, debuts, concept cars or out -of- production classics. It is attended by automotive industry representatives, dealers, auto journalists and car enthusiasts plus is organized by the International Organization Of Motor Vehicle Manufacturers hence it’s nickname ‘The Swiss Catwalk’.  

First held in 1905, the auto show has hosted almost all major internal combustion engined models in the history of the automobiles, 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 & social debates, have been announced at the exhibition. The show is regarded as a level playing field for the world’s automakers aided by the fact that Switzerland lacks an auto industry of its own.
