Having suffered postponement as a result of the dreaded coronavirus pandemic, the Ever event is set to go ahead between September 10 and 12 at the Grimaldi Forum. The exhibition returns for the 15th edition and focusses on ecologically considerate vehicles and renewable energies.
The decision to postpone rather than cancel the 2020 event was made back in April, when the Principality was in confinement and the future of the pandemic was looking uncertain. With the health crisis having calmed considerably since then, the show can go on, much to the relief of event president Bernard Fautrier, who thanked exhibitors for remaining faithful: “The forty or so exhibitors have remained loyal to us in these completely unusual circumstances.”
During the event, the Diaghilev Hall will contain the latest and greatest electric and plug-in hybrid models. A hybrid version of a legendary car is set to be revealed, too. While a majority of these vehicles will remain stationary throughout the exhibition, some sustainable toys may be put in motion as the Ever event stays true to its testing tradition with “Ride & Drive”. Guests will be able to ride and drive certain models outside the Grimaldi Forum and on the indoor test track of the convention centre.
If vehicles that are limited to land use only aren’t really your thing, then not all is lost as electric boats will not only be exhibited but also test driven in Port Hercule. The exhibition will also include scientific conferences and spirited debates on the future of sustainable mobility and renewable energies, while key speakers contribute to the discussion via microphone.
