Postponement of International MotorXpo Hong Kong (IMXHK) 2020 | F
In light of the outbreak of COVID-19 pandemic and its relevant quarantine measures taking place all over the world, International Motor Show (HK) Management Limited, organiser of International MotorXpo Hong Kong (IMXHK) 2020, announced today the postponement of the event originally scheduled for 10 – 14 July this year. Exact dates will be released at the appropriate time. The new schedule will be determined thoughtfully according to the global situation, in order to protect public health security and safeguard the interests of all stakeholders.
Despite the postponement, the organiser will continue to present a series of exciting pre-show activities for car lovers and different groups of people.
Some time ago, the organiser has rolled out “Hong Kong Design Initiatives” to support automotive related industry, and encourage innovation and creativity of Hong Kong younger generation. The “Design the Future” Automotive Design Competition for tertiary students in Hong Kong is entering final judging stage and results will soon be announced. The champion will be awarded a scholarship together with a 3-month internship at Zagato in Italy, one of the most prestigious car design studios in the world.
On the other hand, as a side event of Hong Kong Inter-school Race Track Design Competition for secondary school students under the “Hong Kong Design Initiatives”, an eSports Gaming Competition will be organised together with Cyberport. The Competition aims to create opportunities for the younger generation to design signature virtual race tracks of Hong Kong which may be further developed into eSports games for users from all over the world, and at the same time nurture young eSports athletes and uplift the standard of eSports development in Hong Kong. Details will be announced shortly.
Also in the pipeline is a plan of running IMXHK’s pre-shows in the Greater Bay Area. With a very different positioning from other car shows in Mainland China, the pre-shows will serve as a preview of the most distinguished elements of IMXHK, creating unparallel exhibition experiences for the audience in the region.
Themed “Road to the Future” and striving to bring a brand-new experience to all the participants, IMXHK is Hong Kong’s first-ever comprehensive auto-themed event with a wide variety of activities suitable for all walks of life. Besides bringing together a fascinating array of international motor brands and the latest innovative auto technologies, the Expo will also present a Global Automotive Forum, Renowned Designer and Lifestyle Gallery, IMX CARnival complemented with eSports and inter-activities, and two competitions under “Hong Kong Design Initiatives”. During the year-long event preparation, IMXHK has received staunch support from Hong Kong SAR Government, the automotive industry, business sector, education sector, and various organisations.
IMXHK looks forward to making this mega event an unforgettable one to every visitor. For more updates, please visit our website (www.imxhk.com) and follow our social media platforms (Facebook fan page & Instagram: @imxhk2020).
