The COVID-19 pandemic has struck the world quite strongly and gatherings are being dreaded. While sports have been greatly affected too, auto shows and motorcycle shows have suffered similarly. The Geneva Motor show was also cancelled this year. Similarly EICMA, the global motor show has also cancelled its 78th show in wake of the crisis. Read on to find more about EICMA Motorshow cancelled 2020.
New dates for EICMA Motorshow 2020
The EICMA was scheduled to take place from 3-8 November 2020. However, the pandemic has forced the show to be postponed to 11-14 November 2021. EICMA said that international participation in its motor show has made the organizers ditch the dates. We hope by then the after-effects of this pandemic are subdued and everything is back to normal.
As the unlock phase starts here, virtual launches and motor shows have begun. After successful launches of quite a few cars, automakers have realized that they get the same media coverage for a lot less cost. We may also see a lot of virtual motor shows being conducted for quite some time now whether we like it or not.
Earlier this year, big brands like KTM, BMV Motorrad, and Husqvarna announced that they will not be a part of EICMA 2020 due to Covid-19 crisis. This move hinted towards the cancellation of the motor show. As a result, the organizers announced they were looking into the matter but now it has been officially announced that EICMA 2020 will not happen this year.
