Munich. In light of current events and growing
measures to contain the coronavirus, not to mention our duty of care
towards our guests and staff, it is with a heavy heart that the
Organisation Team of the BMW Motorrad Days has decided to cancel this
The BMW Motorrad Days represent one of the largest and most international customer events of the BMW Group with a regular attendance of over 40.000 visitors from all over the world. Our aim is to always meet this aspiration. However, the current circumstances no longer allow this event to be planned as the necessary lead times involved are very long. This means that the BMW Motorrad Days cannot be carried out.
Our early cancellation will moreover make planning easier for our many overseas visitors, knowing they have longer lead times for logistics and travel arrangements.
