The news had created a shock wave a few weeks ago. And this for two reasons. First, because the cancellation of the Geneva Motor Show, no one really expected it. And for good reason, it had already had to keep doors closed in 2020 and had not been organized last year either, due to the Covid-19 epidemic. Fans were then impatiently awaiting this new edition, which will ultimately not see the light of day either, the organizers fearing a new wave of contamination this winter. But the big surprise was above all the announcement of the relocation of the Geneva Motor Show… to Qatar. A surprising decision to say the least, although it had already been announced that the two editions were to be held in parallel. The event will only take place at Doha.

If all this could seem a bit vague, the organizers are giving us some additional details about this new show. We already know that it will be held on dates very close to the Qatar Grand Prix, in November. Besides, it’s Will Buxton, notably seen in the Netflix series Drive to Survive which will take care of the presentation during the event. A choice that is obviously not trivial. He further states: Expect activations to blend both the world of Formula 1 and the show“. There should therefore be many activities related to motorsport during this meeting, which should not fail to please the fans.

As the organizers explain, the Doha show will take place at several different sites, three in total. Visitors will be invited to go to the Doha Exhibition and Convention Center (DECC) but also in a large automobile museum as well as on the Losail circuit, which will notably make it possible to test sports and racing vehicles. On the other hand, it will be necessary to wait before knowing the precise dates, as well as the list of the manufacturers present. It remains to be seen whether European brands will be ready to make the trip…
