    Frankfurt auto show to move?

    So says this article, citing lower attendance at recent  Frankfurt shows.  Is this as simple as looking for a sexier German home, or is this more related to government distancing themselves from the auto industry?

    They just need to stick to the proven concept: all brands, all models, including their best ones. No need for mobility, life style and all this bla bla bla.

    Follow that (old) road and people will come in masses.

    Re: Frankfurt auto show to move?

    The problem started with the brands not wanting to go to auto shows anymore.  Cost became unjustified. 
    In Geneva we have the same problem at a smaller level as it is on neutral territory so no need for the brands to defend their territory or avoid the competitions s one. 
    But even so , in a smaller mesure , quite a few brands have canceled their presence ( started about 3 years ago with Opel , then Mini , Land Rover etc...

    The Geneva auto show has to reinvent itself too if it wants to survive  . There will be much more interactif stuff   .

    lt could probably be the only serious car show left in Europe  . It never became too big and stayed with an approchable spirit . People can get close to the cars , even sit in nearly all of them .

    Its just a manifestation of the times. The younger generation doesn't have the interest in cars as do the older generation. Also, social media and internet allow review of cars from ones home.

    Re: Frankfurt auto show to move?

    +1 those shows are boring/static as hell. You can go to a trackday and smell, feel and maybe catch a ride in a sportscar for free...

    Re: Frankfurt auto show to move?

    I have not been there but from several sources I am sensing that a place like Goodwood has a much brighter future than the traditional autoshows. Much more for the spectator.


    Re: Frankfurt auto show to move?

    Tso I agree the goodwood def a better format for performance cars. Regular cars not so much.
