Covid-19 halts PRI Trade Show
The 33rd annual Performance Racing Industry Trade Show, an offseason gathering that draws a significant segment of Dirt Late Model exhibitors and attendees, won’t be held in 2020 because of the coronavirus, PRI officials announced this evening.
The trade show had worked closing with Indianapolis, Ind., officials and Indiana Convention Center staff to develop safety measures for the event scheduled for Dec. 10-12, but “mounting uncertainty related to the coronavirus resulted in an environment that would not be conducive to a productive trade show,” PRI’s press release said.
The massive trade show draws more than 30,000 attendees and 1,100 companies with several Dirt Late Models on the show floor with a who’s who of drivers, industry leaders and manufacturers.
“It is with great disappointment that we announce that the 2020 PRI Trade Show will not take place,” said Dr. Jamie Meyer, president of PRI. “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.”
Full refunds for exhibitor booth deposits will be issued and further updates will be posted to performanceracing.com.
