First GIMS Qatar date revealed
Last summer we reported that the organisers of the Geneva International Motor Show (GIMS) had announced that GIMS 2023 would not take place either, as has been the case in past years since the COVID-19 pandemic. Amidst all the cancellations, last year, the GIMS organisers announced the creation of a new International Motor Show in Qatar.
Although there has already been a first contact, the official event will not be held until next year. Now, we finally know the exact dates. As reported, the first edition of the Geneva Motor Show Qatar will be held from 5 to 14 October 2023.
The event will be held in the city of Doha, hosted by the Doha Exhibition and Convention Centre (DECC), although there will also be other prominent venues in the city, such as the Lusail International Circuit, which will be used for test drives.
The dates have been chosen to coincide with the Formula 1 Qatar Grand Prix, which also takes place in Doha and will be held on 8 October. Geneva International Motor Show CEO Sandro Mesquita said:
“The dates for our exceptional event in Doha have now been set and we are looking forward to moving full steam ahead towards the first edition of GIMS Qatar. This platform will position itself as the new premier motor show for the Middle East, running concurrently with the prestigious FIA Formula 1 race in Doha.
Qatar will be a veritable festival of global automotive events for more than a week. Exhibitors, media and fans can look forward to the highly anticipated GIMS Qatar in 2023.”
