THE GENEVA INTERNATIONAL MOTOR SHOW IS CANCELLED!


The 90th edition of the GIMS, which was supposed to welcome the media from next Monday and the general public from 5 to 15 March 2020, will now finally not take place. This is an injonction decision of the Federal Council of 28 February 2020 that no events with more than 1,000 people are allowed to take place until 15 March 2020. The decision falls 3 days before the opening of the exhibition to the media.

STATEMENT: Following the official cancellation of the Geneva International Motor Show due to the emerging situation with Coronavirus, the Morgan Motor Company can confirm that plans to launch their all-new model next week will continue as scheduled.

The live element of the launch that would have taken place in Geneva will now follow a revised format.

Plans to bring the Morgan stand, show cars and staff already on the ground home are now underway, and a further update on launch plans will be issued in due course.

‘Carmakers exhibition fees are non refundable’!

Crikey that’s a hit for Morgan

Maybe yes
I have commercial insurance on my business and have participated in exhibitions at some expense and I must admit to never looking or being aware to see if there is anything on recuperating cancelled exhibition costs

I would be surprised if they had cover for it. Very difficult situation. More annoyed that it means all their efforts on the main show of their year are stuffed. I had some friends planning to visit the show who have flights hotels and everything. It's more important that we halt the continued spread as fast as possible.


Just time to burn a little more petrol before dinner.

From the MMC facebook site.

Geneva International Motor Show Plan B...
In true Morgan spirit, the show must go on. Whilst we won't be revealing a car in Geneva, we will be doing so back in the UK. And where more appropriate than the original 1914 workshop at our home in Malvern Link.
We'll be hosting a launch that will be filmed and broadcast on YouTube for the wider community. The launch will go ahead as planned on Tuesday, and we can't wait to share our new car with you all.
Those interested will also have opportunity to view the cars in person here in Malvern for the week following the launch, please contact your local Dealership who will be facilitating booked viewings.
Oh, and in case you were wondering where our show car is, it's about to be unloaded in Geneva and driven back to the UK to make sure it gets here in time. Keep an eye out on our social channels for more!

Getting rather excited here, just north of Stanford, where it’s rather windy and wet.
And the weather ain’t great either
