Australian Motor Show Cancels 2013 Edition

April 6, 2013

The Australian International Motor Show(AIMS) has announced the cancellation of the 2013 edition of the exhibition which was originally scheduled to be held in June in Melbourne.

According to the organiser of AIMS, the decision to cancel was based on consensus from the local auto industry and it follows a trend of recent suspensions and cancellations of motor shows in in London, Zagreb and Amsterdam. The Australian auto industry claimslimited marketing budgetsare forcingpotential exhibitors to allocate marketing spend to activities other than exhibitions. Future editions of the show have not been ruled out.

AIMS rotated between Melbourne and Sydney and it has been organised by the AIMS Joint Venture since 2009.
