Amelia Island Concours 2022
March 3 @ 9:30 am - March 6 @ 4:30 pm$100
In June 2021 the Amelia Island Concours event underwent a significant change of ownership –
The Amelia Island Concours d’Elegance is one of the world’s largest and most prestigious car events, in June 2021 it was been acquired by Hagerty. The Michigan-based company is a world-renowned provider of classic insurance, car valuations and automotive media.
The 27th Amelia Island Concours d’Elegance, being held on March 3-6, 2022, is set to display “more than 250 significant classic and historically relevant vehicles”.
The news follows Hagerty’s recent acquisitions of other top-tier US automotive events including the Greenwich Concours d’Elegance, Concours d’Elegance of America and the California Mille.
Bill Warner founded the Amelia Island Concours d’Elegance 26 years ago; Hagerty says he will remain in his position as the event’s chairman emeritus. In its press release, Hagerty explains that it plans to “work with the Concours’ existing operational team to expand the annual event”.
Hagerty will be hoping that it can do this by tapping into the 650,000 people who are members of the Hagerty Drivers Club. In 2021 the Amelia Island Concours and Auctions attracted around 13,000 guests, despite the impact of the coronavirus pandemic.
Hagerty CEO McKeel Hagerty said. “Our objective is to knit the enthusiast community together in a way that supports and protects the future of car culture. Amelia Island is synonymous with Concours and motor sports heritage due to the steadfast efforts of Bill Warner and his team. We are incredibly proud to have the opportunity to build upon and scale Bill’s vision.”
Bill Warner added: “When I founded the concours I wanted to infuse the calm, traditional concours environment with the energy of motor sports. We achieved that and raised more than $4 million for charity along the way. In Hagerty, we have a passionate and highly skilled team that will bring these themes to a larger audience.”
Further details of the 2022 Concours will follow as they become available.
