Motor Show gets red light

The British International Motor Show has been cancelled for 2010.

The event, organised by the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders and IMIE, is another casualty of the economic downturn and unprecedented challenges facing the motor industry in the UK and around the world.

“The global credit crunch has placed the automotive sector under unique pressure and has created a level of uncertainty that deters manufacturers from committing to large-scale, international events,” says SMMT chief executive Paul Everitt.

IMIE’s Rob Mackenzie says: “Given the great strides that the Motor Show has taken since its return to London, we fully endorse the decision to postpone BIMS until market conditions will again permit us to deliver a world class event that truly showcases the UK industry.”
