the World of Self-2018 © MaxPPPEn effect, so that the augurs foresaw a collapse of attendance, it is quite the opposite has happened. Close of the previous edition in spite of a shortened duration, the World of the self thus remains the automobile show one of the most frequented in the world. To the great joy of Jean-Claude Girot, general commissioner of the salon, which was spent without stint to reinvent the event. It always precedes largely the IAA in Frankfurt (810 00 visitors in 2017) and the Geneva salon (660 000 visitors by 2018).

The fact that the attendance is maintained above the one-million mark of visitors, ” is very satisfactory “, because ” the show took this year’s five days less than usual “, said Mr. Girot.
At the request of the manufacturers, which wanted to reduce the cost of their participation, the organizers had chosen this year to reduce from 16 to 11 days, the duration of the event, which celebrated this year its 120 years. But there were compensations with six night instead of two and will drain largely by adding the living room of the two-wheels since the worlds of the bike and the car are very close and often relate to the same passionate.
