We (me and 3 mates) fly out on Friday 15 March, show Saturday, fly back Sunday.

This will be our 10th year whilst we enjoy the show, we normally only do 1 day, its a chance to catch up with 3 mates who live in different parts of Europe, eat good food and have a beer or 2...

Tips

Geneva is expensive and will be busy for the show so may be worth booking restaurants if you want to eat somewhere specific.

The public transport system is excellent and normally hotels provide free travel cards for the duration of your stay.

Decide what you want to see at the show as its normally packed and you won't see it all in 1 day, travel light as its quite warm in the halls even if its freezing outside.

Buy tickets online before you go print at home. You can gain access after 4pm at a discounted rate, usually a bit quieter too.

Don't go into any watch shops in Geneva - You WILL buy one, trust me i know!

Above all enjoy the experience.

We fly in about 8/9am on Saturday 8th. Fly back 3pm Sunday 9th.

I hope it's not too busy but if it is then so be it, I'll carry him on my shoulders if I have to.

Would be great to meet up with any 911uk'ers...before bedtime Grin

OK Saturday is the 9th March (you said 8th earlier, thought you'd got your days mixed up). I arrive on Friday 8th.
I'll still be there for the morning session on Sat 9th but fly back in the early afternoon.

You say "we", should I look out for a handsome man with an ankle biter ? Grin Or are you attending with your good lady?

We (son and myself) have been to the show for the last 5 years.

Fly out of Luton, a short undercover walk from Geneva airport to arrive at the show for about 09.00. Time for a coffee as it doesn't open until 10 weekdays.

First few hours are great but then it starts to get busy, in the past we have then used the free shuttle bus down into Geneva itself for lunch by the lake, returning to the show about 3 when its getting quiet again. Then fly back home in the evening.

Last year they were reluctant to allow re-admission back into the show so will see what our options are.

We usually get our tickets in advance, although I don't think its any quicker.

Thanks for that Pretzel thumbsup

If you want to go for a Bed's pre-show beer then drop me a PM. Would be good to meet up and discuss what the best plan is, seeing that I am taking the boy I'd rather plan ahead, usually I am a 'wing it' kind of guy Thumb

I'll drop you a PM regarding a beer, you won't have any problems with a 6 year old other than visibility around the popular exotic stands including Porsche.

There are usually a few areas downstairs by Omega watches which are quieter and have slot car (Scalextric) and simulator games etc.
