Ottawa, Ontario – The Automotive Industries Association (AIA) of Canada announced that the 2021 Quebec Grand Forum has been postponed.
The event, initially scheduled for December 8, 2021, has been postponed until March 17, 2022, due to the ongoing uncertainty surrounding COVID-19 restrictions.
AIA says that because of concerns about maintaining social distancing while attending a gathering of this size they think their best course of action is to postpone until social gatherings are under fewer restrictions.
“While we all hope that the pandemic will be under control by December of this year, given the ongoing uncertainty, we decided it was best to postpone the Grand Forum until 2022,” said Patrick Saint-Pierre, Quebec division president of AIA Canada. “This was not a decision we took lightly. However, we felt that for the health and safety of our members and our industry, prudence was the best course of action.”
The Quebec Grand Forum brings together hundreds of aftermarket professionals from across the province to meet, network, and foster valuable conversations. It is open for any aftermarket stakeholders in Quebec to attend and celebrate another year in the industry, while learning from experts and panelists.
