The 83rd annual Geneva International Motor Show wound up on Sunday with total attendance registered at 690,000, down two percent from the previous year.

Despite the decline in visitors, organizers of the 11-day show at the Palexpo exhibition centre expressed satisfaction with the results.

“With close to 40 percent of visitors coming from neighbouring countries, given their economic situation a net reduction in tickets was to expected,” Maurice Turrettini, chairman of the motor show said in a news release.

“The power of attraction for the most international of motor shows remains intact.”

The initial findings of a survey of exhibitors found them to be happy with the way the motor show went this year.

The show featured more than 130 world and European premieres of new car models, including the first look in Europe at the new convertible Corvette Stingray sports car from America’s General Motors.

A total of 260 exhibitors participated over a display surface of 110,000 square metres for an event that attracted 10,000 journalists.

Next year’s car show is scheduled from March 6th to 16th 2014.
