The Geneva International Motor Show, a century-old automotive event, has come to an end due to declining interest from car manufacturers, the organisers announced.

First held in 1905, the Geneva Motor Show attracted 17,000 visitors and had two more editions before being paused due to the economic crisis and World War I. It resumed in 1923 and reached its peak in 2005, drawing nearly 750,000 visitors.

The coronavirus pandemic forced the show to shut down again for four years. When it reopened earlier this year, it saw only 37 exhibitors and 168,000 visitors, a stark contrast to the 602,000 visitors and 184 exhibitors in 2019.
