PARIS AUTO SHOW
by Jane Rosenstein
The Paris Auto Show held at Porte de Versailles Convention Center in Paris from
October 4- October 14, 2018 was a big success.
The show celebrated its 120 th birthday with displays in 8 pavilions.
There were more than 200 brands than in 2016 . With over 1 million visitors and over 10,000 journalists it was well attended . At the opening press night, several manufacturers offered food and champagne; Most all of the women were dressed in black and wore high heels!
During the press nights, I asked the attendees their opinion compared to 2018. Most thought it was better because the French prestige cars were better represented. Some missed Volkswagen and Ford not being there.
The test driving area was in another part of the city this year.
Crowds enjoyed seeing the new models of cars and motorcycles. It was great entertainment for both singles, couples and families.
Especially interesting was the display of old cars and motorcycles, called Routes Mythiques.
Paris Auto Show provided several hours of enjoyable experiences.
