Qatar’s passion for fast and luxurious cars go back a long way. For several decades, the world’s top brands have found many takers in the country.

Last year, Qatar’s hosting of the Formula 1 race at the Lusail International Circuit was a testament to its passion for motorsports. 

This year, the country will host the first Geneva International Motor Show Qatar (GIMS Qatar) from October 5 to 14, which is set to coincide with the 2023 F1 Qatar Grand Prix on October 8.

Car enthusiasts are likely to experience an exceptional show, spread across multiple locations in the country including the Inland Sea, Doha Corniche and the Lusail International Circuit.

The 10-day event, organised by GIMS and Qatar Tourism, is expected to attract more than 200,000 visitors. The main exhibition will be held at the Doha Exhibition and Convention Centre (DECC).

At the Inland Sea, visitors will get the chance to test drive vehicles off-road next to the Sealine Desert Camp. The rough terrain will help exhibitors show off their vehicles’ capabilities and also offer VIP hospitality to guests.

“The unique desert landscape and its tidal inland sea represent an off-road challenge for any 4X4 lover,” said Qatar Tourism COO Berthold Trenkel.

GIMS Qatar exhibitors are also expected to host rides at the Lusail International Circuit. There will also be a ‘Parade of Excellence’ along the 6km Doha Corniche which will bring together the world’s best cars in collaboration with exhibitors, customers and visitors.

“The parade will bring the energy and dynamism of GIMS Qatar to the Doha waterfront as the second weekend begins. As dusk turns to evening, the parade will unite the country and its visitors in a passionate celebration of all the things automotive, providing an opportunity for brands to host their existing and prospective customers,” said Trenkel.

The DECC’s 29,000SqM exhibition space will be filled with an array of limited edition cars and supercars in an immersive setting. 

GIMS Qatar is scheduled to take place every two years.
