Motorcycle Live organisers have this morning announced that the 2020 show has been postponed until November 2021, following coronavirus safety concerns for visitors and the industry workers at the event.
Taking place annually at Birmingham’s National Exhibition Centre (NEC), the 2020 show was due to take place between November 21 and 29. This has now been pushed back to 20-28 November 2021.
Speaking in a statement, event Managing Director, Finlay McAllan, said: "Motorcycle Live is all about audience interaction, meeting with friends, climbing onto all the latest machines and trying on the all latest gear.
"Many of us use it as an annual pilgrimage to meet with friends and family and enjoy a great day out together. And it’s not just the public who join us each day – we, alongside our industry colleagues - look forward to the event every year too," he continued.
"Therefore, as you can imagine, the decision to postpone this year’s show has not been taken lightly. Our concern for the safety of our visitors, exhibitors and industry colleagues is at the heart of this decision.
"As with any hard decision, we looked at it with a number of different perspectives and factored in various scenarios and restrictions that could be imposed," the statement added.
