EICMA 2020 cancelled
- EICMA 2020, the biggest annual motorcycle event that’s held in Milan, has been cancelled this year. The reason for the same is – you guessed it – COVID-19!
- 2020 would have been the 78th edition of EICMA, and it was originally scheduled to take place between November 3-8. Now, it has been postponed to November 9-4, 2021.
- The official press statement from EICMA’s organisers says, “The value and international leadership of our exhibition-event has convinced us not to wager on the evolution of the health situation linked to the COVID-19 emergency and, above all, to listen to and protect the whole of the two-wheeler industry. Responsibility has been imposed on us and makes us act on a wide scale in the interest of the exhibitors and our visitors, postponing the 2020 show with a solid convergence of intentions.”
- The ongoing coronavirus pandemic has forced most major automotive and technology events to be cancelled this year. Auto Expo 2020 was probably the last major trade show before the COVID-19 outbreak.
