Events have been canceled or postponed at an alarming rate in 2020 due to the coronavirus pandemic. Add another event to the list.
The Performance Racing Industry (PRI) show has been canceled. It was originally scheduled for December in Indianapolis.
However, due to the restrictions in place for indoor events, it was tough to have the event.
“It is with great disappointment that we announce that the 2020 PRI Trade Show will not take place,” said PRI President Dr. Jamie Meyer. “Our goal is to always do what is best for the motorsports industry, and PRI will continue to lead with business solutions for an ever-changing future.”
No online option has been offered at this time.
This was going to be Meyer’s first PRI show in Indianapolis since being President. Now that’ll have to wait one calendar year.
He came to the company in May 2020 after working 15-years for General Motors.
The next PRI show will be hosted in December 2021. All exhibitors refunds will be automatically refunded to the company.
The Performance Racing Industry is committed to supporting Motorsports manufacturers, resellers, racetracks, race teams, and sanctioning bodies. In addition, they support the media and racers themselves through advocacy, training, and other initiatives.
Besides PRI being canceled, SEMA — the Specialty Equipment Market Association — also canceled their in-person event. However, SEMA will still go on as an online event in 2020 from Nov. 2-6.
“Creating a platform where the industry can gather and discover new products and trends has always been a SEMA priority,” Chris Kersting, SEMA president and CEO, said. “SEMA360 is the ideal solution to bring the industry together, at a time when we’ve all been kept apart. The platform allows qualified buyers to interact with manufacturers, see innovative new products, check out top SEMA Show builds, and take in industry-leading educational offerings.”
