COVID-19: 2020 Knysna Motor Show Called Off

Due to the COVID-19 lockdown, the 2020 Knysna Motor Show, scheduled for May 3, has been cancelled. The organisers confirm that there will be no Knysna Motor Show this year, due to the lockdown imposed by the government on March 15.

Chief organiser Peter Pretorius, on behalf of the organising club, the Garden Route Motor Cub, south Africa has issued the following statement:

“It is with much regret and sadness that we herewith advise that the Knysna motor show (KMS) planned for May 3 has been cancelled. The influencing factors in arriving at this decision are the banning of gatherings of more than 100 people, as outlined by the President, and the withdrawal of sponsors from the event .

“Through consultations, uncertainty about the future, the health risk for elderly people and the restrictions imposed in the president’s emergency announcement last night, we have also decided that unfortunately no Knysna motor show will take place at a later stage in 2020 either. In the greater scheme of things the Knysna motor show is sacrificial, and from today we are entering a period of unprecedented uncertainty in this modern world that we live in.  

“We have thus had very little choice in this unfortunate decision. No doubt, where applicable, this could have an impact on visitors’ and exhibitors travel and accommodation plans and it is suggested that you immediately take action to cancel your commitments and negotiate a refund.

“We sincerely thank you for your support of the Knysna motor show to date, and we will be in contact regarding the KMS plans for 2021. Your consideration in again supporting the KMS next year will greatly be appreciated. We apologize for the inconvenience caused, but hope that you understand that the decisions taken regarding the 2020 KMS are necessary and a responsible choice.  

“Most importantly take care of yourselves and follow the hygiene recommendations. No doubt our effort will now be directed at getting through this crisis and, where we can, assist our families and others.”
