Reuters is reporting that the Geneva auto show has been cancelled due to measures the Swiss government has taken to contain coronavirus.
The 90th Geneva Motor Show was due to start on Monday, according to organizers Palexpo. The Swiss government announced that it was banning events that would likely attract more than 1,000 people in an effort to curb the spread of the coronavirus.
“We regret this situation, but the health of all participants is our and our exhibitors’ top priority. This is a case of force majeure and a tremendous loss for the manufacturers who have invested massively in their presence in Geneva,” Maurice Turrettini, chairman of the Palexpo Foundation Board said.
