Blair Qualey, President and CEO of the New Car Dealers Association (NCDA), issued the following statement regarding the status of the 2022 Vancouver International Auto Show:
“For the past several months we have been working diligently with our partners and major auto manufacturers to plan a return of Western Canada’s best-attended consumer exhibition event in March of 2022 at the beautiful Vancouver Convention Centre.
Automotive enthusiasts from across the province have been eager for a return of the Vancouver Auto Show, however, our top priority continues to be the safety of the public, our dealer members and their staff.
The constraints on the industry and the realities of the continuing pandemic in Canada have forced us to make the disappointing decision to postpone the 2022 Show until 2023.
We are now turning our focus to a triumphant return of the Vancouver Auto Show in 2023 as well as new initiatives to connect consumers with the new car industry in 2022. We hope to be able to announce details of those plans shortly.”
