CHI Geneva 2020 has been cancelledOver the last few days, the Federal Council and the Canton of Geneva have presented new health measures aimed at controlling the evolution of the Covid-19 pandemic. Following on from these announcements, the CHI Geneva organising committee decided to cancel the show’s 2020 edition.
The CHI Geneva organising committee have done everything in their power. Strict and far-reaching health security measures had been put in place and many scenarios considered so that the event could take place, even with a very restricted number of spectators or behind closed doors.
However, the announcements made by the Federal Council on Wednesday, 28th October and by the Geneva State Council on Sunday, 1st November have now limited events to five people, rendering the holding of an event like CHI Geneva impossible. With participants and staff not being included in this figure, the closed-door option was studied, but in the current health situation the organising committee cannot of course envisage bringing together under one roof a total of some 400 committee members, volunteers, riders, grooms, etc. The 2020 show which was to take place at Palexpo from 10th to 13th December has therefore been cancelled. Spectators who have already bought tickets will receive full refunds.
The organisers look forward to the 60th edition of CHI Geneva from 9th to 12th December 2021
This brings the number of FEI Driving World Cup™ events down to two: only Budapest (27-29 November) and Leipzig (14-17 January) are the remaining legs before the Final in Bordeaux (6-7 February).
