Autocare 2020, Australia’s largest education and training led automotive convention has been postponed.
The escalation of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) health crisis has triggered an unprecedented government and public response. The current circumstances have led to the status of Autocare 2020, and the original date of June 19-20, 2020, needing to be urgently re-evaluated.
The Australian Automotive Aftermarket Association (AAAA) Board of Directors held a special meeting on 16th March to fully consider options for the Autocare 2020 convention. After a thorough evaluation, the decision was made to postpone the event.
The rescheduled Autocare dates are Friday and Saturday, October 30-31, 2020. The convention location will remain at the Brisbane Convention & Exhibition Centre.
“The AAAA takes the health and safety of our members, staff and event sponsors, exhibitors and speakers, very seriously and as a result we have made the difficult decision to postpone Autocare 2020,” said Stuart Charity, CEO of the AAAA.
“The new dates will allow Autocare 2020 to run at a time that provides the best opportunity for our industry and the wider community to enjoy this fantastic event, in a safe and healthy environment.”
All Autocare 2020 conference stream registrations, exhibitor and sponsorship commitments will roll over to the new Autocare 2020 dates.
Hosted by the AAAA, the outstanding Autocare 2020 program will continue to provide industry leading speakers and exhibitors and address the latest global trends in the aftermarket industry.
“We acknowledge the significant commitment by speakers, sponsors and exhibitors and share our appreciation for their patience as Autocare 2020 arrangements pivot to meet the new dates.
“With the support of event organiser International Exhibition & Conference Group, and the auto aftermarket community, we can look forward to bringing the industry together in October. We thank you in advance for your support and understanding at this difficult time,” said Stuart.
