The Geneva Motor Show, one of the biggest events on the motoring calendar, gets underway February 28 in Geneva, Switzerland.
The show begins with three days of press previews and special events, during which the majority of the new vehicles and major announcements from automakers around the world will be revealed to the media.
The public show days begin on March 3 and run through March 13 at Geneva's Palexpo convention center - tickets cost from CHF 16 (€12.50) for adults and can be purchased online from the event's website.
