With the steady rise in the number of COVID 19 cases in Canada, several automotive organizations are cancelling key collision industry events that were scheduled to take place in the upcoming weeks.
COVID 19 was recently declared a global pandemic by the World Health Organisation, with more than 300 people infected just in Canada to date.
As the numbers continue to go up, all industry organizations are taking necessary steps to avoid large gatherings, either cancelling or postponing events until further notice. It is advisable for all who have already registered for various collision industry events and were planning to attend, to check with the organizers regarding the latest status. Checking up before planning any trade-event trip across the country can help avoid last-minute confusion.
The Autosphere calendar has already removed all events that have been cancelled so far. Readers can refer to the calendar for further updates as the calendar will reflect the latest changes in the status of the industry events regularly.
The following events for the collision repair segment have currently been cancelled/postponed:
- PBE Solutions 2020 Spring Show & Expo, Mississauga, ON
- IBIS / International Bodyshop Industry Symposium, Jacksonville, FL
- WIN / 2020 Educational Conference, Newport Beach, Calif.
This list will be updated further as and when we are notified by organizers.
