    The organisers of the Geneva Motor Show have decided to scrap next year's event and want to sell up.

    The international auto show was due to take place in March 2021 but the company behind it has seen weak demand from car brands and exhibitors.

    This year's event was cancelled along with a host of other motor shows around the world due to the coronavirus.

    The announcement raises questions about the future of such events globally as car brands rethink their strategies.

    "The automotive sector is currently going through a difficult phase, and exhibitors need time to recover from the effects of the pandemic," said the Committee and Council of the Foundation "Salon International de l'Automobile", which organises the international motor show.
