The Retromobile Show Postponed from February to March 2022

Scheduled from February 2 to 6, the Retromobile Show will finally take place from March 16 to 20… if the health situation allows it.

The ultra-rapid progression of the Omicron variant disrupts the organization of major events, as the government has replaced gauges. These are currently valid in January but the organizers of Retromobile preferred to take the lead. Initially scheduled for February 2 to 6, the show dedicated to vintage cars has been postponed by a few weeks.

The new dates are from March 16 to 20, 2022. In addition to the problem of visitors, the organizers have also noted that the resumption of the epidemic is impacting exhibitors, hesitant to come to the Porte de Versailles in February. Jean-Sebastien Guichaoua, head of the event, told Le Figaro: “Asked through a survey to give their opinion, exhibitors and visitors voted over 80% in favor of a postponement” .

With a few weeks delay, Retromobile hopes to have a more favorable context. Omicron being a highly contagious variant, with these days a record number of Covid cases, the fifth wave could have all but ended in March.

The program for the next edition remains the same, with the 50th anniversary of the Renault 5, an exhibition on Amedee Gordini and the presence of the Panther tank thanks to the Saumur tank museum.
