a first since its creation

The Tokyo 2021 show will not finally see the light of day, due to the current pandemic. But another fair could perhaps see the light of day next year!

The Covid crisis will definitely have upset all schedules. Contrary to Shanghai fair which took place this year in April, the Tokyo fair it, which was to take place next October, has just been canceled. A first.

A show that has been in full swing since its creation in 1954

Since its creation in 1954, the Tokyo Motor Show has been holds every two years, usually in the fall in October.

But this year, pandemic obliges, the Show will be canceled: it is theJapanese Association of Automobile Manufacturers (JAMA) in person who announced it.

“We decided to cancel it, coming to the conclusion that it would have been difficult to deliver our main program safely,” Akio Toyoda, president of JAMA, told a press conference. He is also the CEO of Toyota.

As a reminder, the previous show, which was held in 2019, brought together nearly1.3 million visitors.

Japan suffers fourth wave of Covid

While the Tokyo Olympics, postponed last year, are normally scheduled for this summer (July 23 to August 8), Japan is going through a umpteenth crisis linked to Covid-19

: the country is indeed suffering the full brunt of a new wave of the virus. Things are therefore complicated for these large-scale events.

This local resurgence of the pandemic should lead to new restrictions on the part of the government: a new state of emergency should be declared by the Japanese Prime Minister in several departments including those of Tokyo and Osaka in particular.

In this difficult context, the association of Japanese manufacturers which manages the show decided otherwise for the show: he talks in particular about, probably in 2022 or 2023, under a new name ” Tokyo Mobility Show“. See you next year, maybe!
