Greetings from all of us at The Amelia Island Concours d’Elegance. We wanted to send a quick note to let you know that our team is working on the 2021 event. With all of the uncertainty that Covid-19 has brought to the motoring world, a little note of reassurance seems important and timely.
While no one can promise tomorrow, we can assure you that our team is making every effort to produce a concours event that acknowledges and responds to the inherent challenges of hosting large events during the coronavirus pandemic. According to health officials, social distancing and masks have proven to be effective in slowing the spread of the disease. Plans for 2021 include options to allow guests the additional space necessary for social distancing. Our seminars, dinners and exclusive events will have limited ticket availability to meet the new capacity requirements that may continue to be in effect at the time of the event.
March 4-7, 2021 remains more than six months away and if 2020 has proven anything it is that conditions can change in a matter of days. According to news reports, there are signs that a vaccine might be available by that time. But there are no guarantees. With this reality, our team is preparing so that we can host our award-winning event at The Ritz-Carlton, Amelia Island and The Golf Club of Amelia Island even if the virus lingers and a vaccine remains elusive.
In 2017 and in 2018, when faced with a foreboding forecast of high winds and rain, The Amelia Island Concours d’Elegance moved Sunday’s concours to Saturday with a three day notice. Just imagine what our team can do in six months.
Thank you for the faithful support for the past 25 years,
The Amelia Island Concours d’Elegance
