Summer Torex cancelled due to COVID-19

This summer’s Torex show, slated for June 27-28 in Toronto, is cancelled due to the uncertainty surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic and the easing of social-distancing restrictions in the coming months.

The move was announced on April 18 by Torex executive director and owner Brian Smith, who said it’s “imperative that I follow the lead and advice of Toronto Mayor John Tory’s office and not host any events in June 2020.”

On April 27, the Ontario government released a 13-page report detailing the “framework for reopening our province.” There must be “a consistent two-to-four week decrease in the number of new daily COVID-19 cases” in Ontario before the provincial government will begin lifting its restrictions.

“Large public gatherings such as concerts and sporting events will continue to be restricted for the foreseeable future,” according to the report.

“Health and safety are paramount at Torex,” said Smith, who added the June 2020 Torex Auction “will still go on as scheduled but online only.”
