The President of ANCMA and Managing Director of the company that organizes the event in Milan made the serious decision after considering the current situation and decided to cancel the 2020 EICMA show which should have been held from 3rd to 8th of November. Now, the focus is on the future event and for the time being, the 2021 EICMA is scheduled between 9th to 14th of November. It’s sad to say that we won’t see any new motorcycle releases this year, physically that is, at one of the biggest motorcycle shows in the world. It looks like the decision came after another motorcycle show was canceled, the 2020 Intermot Motorcycle Event. After making efforts to find solutions to hold the 2020 EICMA Motorcycle Show. Unfortunately, the current situation enforced ANCMA to reschedule the event for next year. It’s true that until November there are four months left and anything can happen, but the high number of people attending the event which is between 800,000 and 1 million is a serious matter to take into consideration. In other words, nothing has to go wrong and the visitor’s health and safety is the number one priority. So, there’s no guarantee that the problem, even if reduced and under control, will no longer exist on November 5, the day scheduled for the inauguration. It’s not up to EICMA and ANCMA to decide if there’s any possibility for the 2020 EICMA to be held due to the fact that prior to this situation, BMW and KTM already announced that they would not participate in the 2020 editions of the major motorcycle show around the world including 2020 Intermot as well. Probably ANCMA could have found a way to ensure the health and safety of the visitors by reducing the number of people attending the event and to secure social distancing measures, but as it seems the COVID-19 situation is something serious and not possible to control. So, the best decision could be to reschedule the event to make sure that the visitor's health is the organizer's number one priority as it should always be. Thus, it looks like ANCMA made the best decision and postpone the motorcycle show until 2021.
