Brussels Motor Show postponed to 2022October 13, 2020
The organizer FEBIAC announced today that the Brussels Motor Show has been postponed until 2022. In mid-September, the organization gave assurances that the auto show is likely to take place in January 2021, but is now being abandoned due to the recent rise in coronavirus infections.
At the Brussels Motor Show, the organization hoped to be the first party to host a major European auto event for the first time since the pandemic began in early 2021. However, given the recent development that the coronavirus infection has received, this issue was again brought up for discussion. The director of the event, Pierre Lalmand, said he did not want to risk it.
“Now that the pandemic is rapidly gaining momentum again, FEBIAC must understand that we cannot organize a ‘physical’ car show. We do not want to undermine in any way the security measures and restrictions on contacts that the government expects from every citizen and organization, ” – Lalmand explained.
As previously reported by AutoTimesNews, the Brussels Motor Show was planned to be held from 15 to 24 January 2021. The organizers then announced that they have developed various scenarios that will allow the auto show to continue, including limiting the number of visitors. However, the event has been postponed until 2022. According to its representatives, the 99th Brussels Motor Show will necessarily take place from 14 to 23 January 2022.
