The 2020 Geneva Motor Show has been canceled

A government ban on large public events means organizers will have no choice but to cancel or postpone the 2020 Geneva Motor Show.

The 2020 Geneva International Motor Show was scheduled to open its doors to the media next week on March 2. But just a few days before it kicks off, the Swiss health authority has announced that "Large-scale events involving more than 1000 people are to be banned. The ban comes into immediate effect and will apply at least until 15 March 2020."
Since the Geneva Motor Show typically attracts around 500,000 visitors every year, organizers will have no choice to either cancel or postpone the event.
"The Federal Council's top priority is to protect the population. It is responding to the latest developments in the coronavirus epidemic and has categorized the situation in Switzerland as 'special' in terms of the Epidemics Act," the Swiss government said in a statement. "This enables the Federal Council, in consultation with the cantons, to order measures that are normally the responsibility of the cantons."

So I guess BMW needs to go ahead and show us the i4 concept now then. And whatever else they were going to introduce.

Oh wow. This is a big deal. I fear this is just the beginning. Japan already cancelled all schools for the entire month of March. Wonder if the Olympics will happen this year.

Not yet, but can't see how they can keep it on given that the virus is only growing and fear is only increasing. Interesting times...
