The organizers of the New York International Auto Show have announced that the event has been rescheduled to August 28 – September 6, 2020, due to concerns over the COVID-19 outbreak. Press days are August 26 & 27, 2020. The annual event usually takes place in April.

“We are taking this extraordinary step to help protect our attendees, exhibitors and all participants from the coronavirus,” said Mark Schienberg, President of the Greater New York Automobile Dealers Association, the organization that operates the New York Auto Show.

“For 120 years, ‘the show must go on’ has been heavily embedded in our DNA, and while the decision to move the show dates didn’t come easy, our top priority remains with the health and well-being of all those involved in this historic event. We have already been in communication with many of our exhibitors and partners and are confident that the new dates for the 2020 Show will make for another successful event,” Schienberg added.

The organizers thanked the New York State Governor Andrew M. Cuomo and the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center for accommodating this change of date.

With more than $330 million in economic benefit attributed to the New York International Auto Show, this event has a huge impact on the local and state economies including the thousands of workers who build the Show each year as well as the hospitality and related services industries that depend on it.
