HISTORY

The show was the first motor show in the world, started in 1898 by industry pioneer, Albert de Dion . After 1910 it was held at the _ Grand Palais _ in the Champs-Élysées .

During the First World War
First World War
motor shows were suspended, meaning that the show of October 1919 was only the 15th "Salon". There was again no Paris
Paris
Motor Show in 1925, the venue having been booked instead for an Exhibition of Decorative Arts . In October 1926 the Motor Show returned, this being the 26th Paris
Paris
_SALON DE L\'AUTOMOBILE_.

The outbreak of war again intervened in 1939 when the 33rd _SALON DE L\'AUTOMOBILE_ was cancelled at short notice. Normality of a sorts returned some six years later and the 33rd "Salon" finally opened in October 1946.

In January 1977 it was announced that no Paris
Paris
motor show would take place that year because of the "current economic situation": at the same time the organisers confirmed that a 1978 _Auto Salon_ for Paris was planned. The 65th _SALON DE PARIS_ duly opened on 15 October 1978 in the modern buildings of the Parc des Expositions on the south-western edge of central Paris
Paris
at the Porte de Versailles, where the show had been held since 1962.
