It is with much regret and sadness that we herewith advise that the Knysna Motor Show (KMS) planned for May 3 has been cancelled.
The influencing factors in arriving at this decision are the banning of gatherings of more than 100 people, as outlined by the President, and the withdrawal of sponsors from the event. Through consultations, uncertainty about the future, the health risk for elderly people and the restrictions imposed in the President’s emergency announcement last night, we have also decided that unfortunately the show will not take place later in 2020 either. In the greater scheme of things, the Knysna Motor Show is sacrificial and from today we are entering a period of unprecedented uncertainty in this modern world that we live in. We have thus had very little choice in this unfortunate decision. No doubt, where applicable, this could have an impact on your travel and accommodation plans and it is suggested that you immediately take action to cancel your commitments and negotiate a refund.
We sincerely thank you for your support of the Knysna Motor Show and will be in contact regarding the KMS plans for 2021. Your consideration in again supporting the KMS next year will greatly be appreciated. We apologise for the inconvenience caused but hope that you understand that the decisions taken regarding the 2020 KMS is necessary and a responsible choice.
Most importantly, take care of yourselves and follow the hygiene recommendations. No doubt our effort will now be directed at getting through this crisis and, where we can, assist our families and others.
