During the event, "thousands of drones lit up the evening sky," the company said in a press release. A unique show called "Genesis of Genesis" was illuminated by aircraft lining up in the sky in various three-dimensional figures. The UAVs "drew" a human hand, Genesis G80 and GV80 cars, with an easily guessed silhouette and design elements (Crest grille), as well as a double helix. At the end of the show, the greeting sign “Hello China” lit up in the sky in Chinese and English.
