The Paris Motor Show – autumn's main event
Published on in Fair and trade show
Certain events are part of the Parisian year and the Motor Show has been a highlight for over a century. As always, cars and their mechanics are in the spotlight at Paris Expo Porte de Versailles this autumn. However, the event also has a few unexpected features...
The Salon de l'Automobile – the classic version
Each autumn, the Motor Show is a chance for you to fantasise in front of new models unveiled by leading manufacturers, enjoy a glimpse of the vehicles of the future, succumb to nostalgia by the classic bikes, or discover the latest trends and innovations. Every sector of the automobile industry is represented with exhibitors spread out over the vast halls of the Porte de Versailles from October 4 to 14 between 10:00 a.m. and 8:00 p.m. To be sure that nothing is missed, you can visit later on Thursdays and Fridays as well as on Saturday 6 or Wednesday 10 October.
... and the contemporary version
Spice up your visit by taking part in some of the various events that punctuate the show. Discover your inner child at the Lego booth as the famous bricks explore the world of the automobile via a host of stunning creations. Experience greener motoring at the Concorde test centre where you can test environmentally friendly vehicles, and travel on the "Legendary Routes" with an illustrated exhibition of legendary drawings and vehicles. Or, see how far the industry has come at the World Women-World Championship which links women and cars and showcases those who have made them their passion and their profession. A completely different kind of event!
Why not live several deadly sins including pride, envy, greed and maybe even lust? You can experience them all in the aisles of Salon de l'Automobile before finding them again in the themed rooms of the Vice Versa Hotel!
