this year it will be at the folk festival no automotive exhibition Erding (AAE) type. This is also due to Corona. However, the initiators also have the International automobile exhibition (IAA) in the view. The instead of pulling as we know, from Frankfurt to Munich and finds – also in the autumn. New date for the AAE, the weekend of 23 is now./24. April 2021.
Erding – For over 40 years, the AAE is a fixed date in September. Shortly after the fall festival place takes place on the folk festival, the largest new-car-exhibition under the open sky in the whole of Bavaria. The IG AAE and the Erdinger/Dorfener Anzeiger as the organisers have now decided for a relocation, is mainly due to the Corona epidemic. The a Meeting of the responsible Manfred Gramsamer, Georg Holderied, Andreas Maier, and Michael Zachskorn of the IG, as well as Paul Ampletzer and Stefan Rupertus from the local newspaper showed.
How it goes with the pandemic?
"Even if under today's low infection Erding was granted subject to the Green light for the exhibition, the AAE 2020 on very, very shaky figures of the city", - stated in a Letter to the Exhibitor, car dealerships from the entire Region. No one could predict how the contagion of numbers developed by the end of September. Especially in the summer holidays played a major role here. "People travel in the holidays, and it is not possible to predict whether and then to the end of the holiday increases after the return of tourists, the number of Infected individuals significantly, and the city of the event must, in the short term put a stop to" communicate to the organizer. Until then, considerable cost would be incurred for construction, the order of exhibition vehicles and advertising.
The risk of infection on the AAE is too high
The IG refers to "the then you certainly still applicable hygiene regulations. No one could say whether it is in the fall, the mask of duty yet, with some certainty, but the 1.5-Meter Distance requirement. "A car show with vehicles on display, which must remain closed and locked, makes no sense. The cars would have to be disinfected, therefore, constantly, as soon as someone puts in a vehicle. This can ensure that the expected number of visitors not the Exhibitor“, - stated in the Declaration.
The organizers of the enormous responsibility of the Exhibitor to see. "Should infect the AAE proven visitors with Sars-CoV-2, would damage the image for all the parties Involved are large and the consequences for the future of the exhibition is not to be expected." The consequence: "for all these reasons, we have decided yesterday, with a heavy heart, together to the car exhibition in Erding this year to cancel", according to the IG.
New event in April fits better - no collision with the new IAA in Munich
But no harm, not a Benefit. Because as of this year, the September, would in any case be a very bad date. Because the IAA, one of the most important Auto shows in the world, pulling in 2021 from Frankfurt to Munich. The wool collide "by no means, and certainly not to compete". From therefore it has been decided for the spring, "to open the car of the year". As the date of the 23. 24. April targets, the city must sign off on it, but still final. "We hope that we go with a blue eye and emerge from the pandemic," says Rupertus. hamUpdated Date: 28 June 2020, 23:33
