Paris Motor Show press days

As with most major motor shows the press were invited to look around the new metal in Paris prior to the general public being allowed in. The 2018 Paris Motor Show press days were 2 and 3 October and you can read all about the breaking news on the first page.

Tickets 

There are a wide range of tickets available for the Paris Motor Show, ranging from the very restrictive “dated tickets” which only allow you one entrance on a predetermined day, with any exit from the exhibition centre rendering your ticket finished, to the all-singing and all-dancing “Pack Sejour”, which covers everything from show entry to flights. In general, tickets for the show are very affordable with an adult day ticket from around £14. A breakdown of ticket options can be seen below.
