Vancouver Auto Show Postponed

For Immediate Release
March 12, 2020

Vancouver, BC – Organizers of the Vancouver International Auto Show announced today that, due to the
evolving COVID-19 Pandemic, the 100th anniversary edition of the Vancouver International Auto Show
has been postponed.

The event, the best attended trade and consumer show in Western Canada, was set to take place at the
Vancouver Convention Centre West, March 25-29, but the decision to postpone was announced today
by the New Car Dealers Association (NCDA), which owns and operates the Show.

Organizers say that taking the extraordinary step was a difficult decision, particularly as the Show
prepared to celebrate its centennial anniversary, but one that was in the best interest of the exhibitors,
attendees, participants and staff. A future date has not been announced.

“We are very grateful to all of our partners including the Vancouver Convention Centre, automakers,
event sponsors and commercial exhibitors for their understanding and support for this decision,” says
NCDA President and CEO Blair Qualey.

Planning for the 100th year celebration has been years in the making and included Opening Day special
guests Roger Penske and Jimmy Pattison. The show was set to feature a number of never previously
displayed private automotive vehicles and collections along with a number of regional, national and
global auto unveils from the world’s top automotive brands.

Guests who have purchased tickets for the Auto Show can receive a full refund at the point of purchase.

Tickets: Purchased tickets are being refunded. You will receive an email with instructions to obtain your refund. If you have not received this email by March 27th, please check your spam folder, and if it is not there, please contact tix123@microspec.com
