The Geneva Motor Exhibit will not be held in 2021 because of to the money issues brought about by the coronavirus pandemic as very well as very poor turnout from the world’s motoring companies.
Right after the cancellation of this year’s Geneva Motor Exhibit, the event’s organisers requested a mortgage from the Swiss govt to assist offset the losses incurred, which are valued at an believed 11 million Swiss Francs (approximately £9.4 million).
In early June, the Swiss govt granted the event’s organisers a sixteen.8 million Franc (£14.three million) bailout – but the mortgage has been turned down by the Geneva Motor Show’s board, as the reimbursement conditions would cripple the event’s funds more.
The to start with reimbursement of one million Francs (all-around £850,000) was because of in June 2021. An additional of the conditions of the arrangement was that a Geneva Motor Exhibit had to be held next yr, which grew to become not likely because of to the unwillingness of the world’s motoring companies to take part pursuing a survey by the show’s organisers.
The survey also discovered that numerous world wide auto models would want to have the function in 2022, to give them enough time to get well some of the losses suffered during the pandemic.
Owing to this chain of situations, the Geneva Motor Show’s Basis Board has voted in favour of the event’s sale to Palexpo SA, which is the organising board who manages the motor show’s yearly venue.
The sale would transfer all of the event’s legal rights to Palexpo SA and with any luck , help save the motor show from dissolution. The Geneva Motor Exhibit stays the major public function in Switzerland – and its removal from the calendar would negatively influence the Swiss economic climate by an believed two hundred million Swiss Francs (all-around £171 million) per yr.
