After having held a wonderful 16th edition last January, the Montreal International Auto Show (MIAS) Charity Preview Gala (CPG) is forced to take a break in 2021. The reasons behind this cancellation are, as you all know, closely linked to the pandemic but also obviously and consequently, to the cancellation of the MIAS.
Not ready to disappear yet!
That said, the Auto Show team, supported by its co-presenters, the Montreal Automobile Dealers Corporation (MADC) and the Palais des congrès de Montréal, in collaboration with the Journal de Montréal, remains very motivated and wants to rethink its formula to adapt it to the 2021 new reality. “One thing is certain, we will not disappear until 2022! It is very important for our organization to support the 6 beneficiary hospital foundations. We usually raise large amounts of money during the evening, $ 924,000 in 2020 and over $ 9 million during the past 15 years. This cancellation will undoubtedly affect them.” Denis Dessureault, Executive Vice-President of the Montreal International Auto Show.
2020, a troubled year
The Auto Show team would also like to express its compassion for all the difficulties and challenges that some individuals and companies have experienced during the ongoing pandemic and that these initiatives are created for one purpose only: support Health.
