"As a result of the economic situation, importers and suppliers in the automotive industry are under considerable pressure," Olaf de Bruijn, director of the RAI, said in a press release.
"We regret that we have to disappoint the car enthusiasts in the Netherlands," said AutoRAI exhibition manager Joost 't Hooft.
"We know that many people were looking forward to the AutoRAI. For the future we hope a modified structure of the event is possible," he said.
The biennial auto exhibition, named AutoRAI after the location of the event, was originally scheduled for April 2013.
