Car Design Night GENEVA web image 1200 wide - cancellation

The Car Design Night Geneva 2020 event is cancelled

Following the recent announcement by the Swiss Government to ban all events involving more than 1,000 people, and the subsequent decision to cancel the Geneva International Motor Show, we are also sorry to announce the cancellation of this year's Car Design Night Geneva event.

This is clearly very disappointing for everyone involved but given the extraordinary circumstances, it is the right decision to make.

We will be contacting all sponsors and registered attendees today to confirm this decision and will keep you updated on any future plans for the event.
