The Auto Show, which traditionally takes place at Heysel, will not be held in 2024. The Board of Directors of the Belgian and Luxembourg Automobile and Cycle Federation (Febiac) has decided not to organize a physical Auto Show next year. This was confirmed by the federation on Friday, according to L’Echo.

Firstly, Febiac has always aimed to offer visitors a high-quality and representative experience. Given that the conditions are not met! The board concluded that it was not appropriate to proceed with the plans for 2024, Febiac said in a statement.

The definitive end of the show?

Firstly, when asked about this, Febiac confirmed the information through its spokesperson Christophe Dubon. “To organize a show, three conditions had to be met. First, public interest, and we noticed during the last show that there was interest. Secondly, favorable sanitary conditions.

Finally, the interest of the exhibitors. And apparently, it was on this last point that it got stuck. This morning, we held a board meeting with all the members of Febiac. And it turned out that there would not be enough brands represented to organize a show in 2024.”

The decision is therefore made: no show next January. “It’s a disappointment because the 2023 show was unanimously praised by Belgian and foreign media. Public attendance was good but not exceptional.”

Although the decision made this morning is final: there will be no show in 2024. “A definitive end? Nothing is finalized,” responds Febiac.

“There will therefore be no physical show. But the brands are free to use this moment to offer their customers conditions similar to those of a show.”

However, according to our information, the decision of D’Ieteren, the importer of brands such as Volkswagen, Audi, Seat, Skoda, Porsche, and Bugatti, not to participate in the Auto Show dealt a severe blow to the organization.

Because groups such as Stellantis and Renault did not want to be present if a sufficient number of brands were not represented. Last year, Mercedes-Benz and Volvo also decided not to participate in the hundredth edition of the show.

D’Ieteren refuses to confirm its position

Finally, the D’Ieteren group did not wish to confirm this information. “Febiac’s decisions are made collectively. And it is not our goal to reveal everyone’s positions,” commented Jean-Marc Ponteville, spokesperson for D’Ieteren.

“What is important is that Febiac’s decision concerns only 2024. And does not prejudge what will happen in the future.”

To recall, the D’Ieteren group also announced that it would not participate physically in the 2022 Auto Show, before it was eventually canceled for sanitary reasons. However, the group finally agreed to participate in the 100th edition in 2023.

A biker parade will also take place on January 18th!
