Given the health uncertainties, FEBIAC has postponed the Brussels Motor Show to 2022

Each year, nearly half a million visitors - private individuals, professionals or fleet managers - attend the Brussels Motor Show in the Heysel Palaces to discover the latest models and innovations from importers of motorised two-wheelers, passenger cars and utility vehicles, and from accessory and equipment manufacturers. This event, which launches the commercial model year, is eagerly awaited by the general public in Belgium and professionals in the sector.

Since the start of the pandemic in March, the organiser of the Brussels Motor Show, the Fédération Belge et Luxembourgeoise de l'Automobile et du Cycle (FEBIAC), has been attentive to developments in the area of health and has been considering the terms and conditions that could allow a Show to be held in a civically responsible manner. Many efforts have been made to develop a Show concept for 2021 that would be a good experience for car enthusiasts while ensuring the safety and comfort of visitors and exhibitors.

After being the last major international motor Show in Europe to successfully run in 2020, FEBIAC hoped to be the first to put European motor Shows back on the map next year, but in light of current and future health uncertainties, FEBIAC has decided to assume its responsibilities and postpone the organisation of its Show until 2022.

FEBIAC must now conclude that the uncertainties around the development of the COVID pandemic make it impossible to organise a ‘physical’ exhibition of cars, motorcycles and light commercial vehicles in January 2021, explains Pierre Lalmand, Show Director. We do not want in any way to undermine the safety measures and contact restrictions that the government expects from every citizen and every organisation.

Anticipating the disappointment of loyal visitors to the Show, FEBIAC would like to announce that the 99th edition of the Brussels Motor Show will take place from 14 to 23 January 2022.
