Can confirm. Saw the press release. Due to "Financial Crisis". What a load of rot. Due to too high prices being charged for floor space. Just being used as revenue raising for the various industry bodies around the country.

This has been talked about for at least 5 years - now it has finally happened. Porsche opened the flood gates about 3 seasons ago in Sydney.

So now 2009 - no Brisbane, no Adelaide & mostly likely no Sydney.

not a great show. although last year they had a nice collection of older lamobs - Uracco, Contach etc... they all blend into one after a while (shows I mean, not Lambos!) - if you've seen one, you've seen them all . Of course we never get the good concept cars...

Yeah - the year with all the Lambos was the week after we went on the Lambo Club run so they were all the same cars on show that had been out for a cruise with us. :p

Was good to see some real cars - not just the usual stuff that you can see in any showroom.

Did not realise it was 2007 - been to too many of these shows over the last 9 years!

ADELAIDE MOTOR SHOW DEFERRED UNTIL 2010

In a sign of the growing impact of the global economic downturn, organisers of the Adelaide Motor Show today announce the 2009 show will be deferred until 2010 due to a shortfall in representation from both automotive and motorcycle manufacturers.

Ian Digby, The Executive Director of the Automotive Exhibitors Association of SA Inc, on
behalf of the association’s board of management, said visitors to the Adelaide Motor Show had come to expect one of the best and most diverse shows in the country and there was a concern these high expectations might not be fulfi lled next year.

“We regret having to make this decision as we had some new and very exciting attractions planned and we were looking forward to exhibiting for the fi rst time in the new Goyder pavilion where all the vehicle manufacturers could be seen in one state-of-the-art
showcase,” Mr Digby said.

“Our visitor numbers have risen signifi cantly over the recent years and we didn’t want to
disappoint them.

“We have always enjoyed enormous public support, in part due to our unique attractions
such as the Adelaide Motorcycle & Scooter Show and a Hot Rod & Street Machine
Spectacular which make the Adelaide Motor Show one of the best value for money events of its kind,” he said.

Since its inception in 1971 the Adelaide Motor Show, which was due to be held 1 – 5 April 2009, has been staged continuously at the Adelaide Showground, and was previously an integral part of the Royal Adelaide Show. It still maintains an unbroken presence at the Royal Adelaide Show and organisers are determined to retain the close association with the Royal Show in 2009.

Ian Digby, Executive Director,
Adelaide Motor Show
