Following the cancellation of the 2020 Geneva Motor Show due to the ongoing coronavirus outbreak, it was announced today that this year’s New York International Auto Show will be delayed until August. In an emailed statement, show officials confirmed that health and safety concerns were the main priority. The show generates more than $330M in economic value.

“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, which owns and operates the annual show at Manhattan’s
Javits Center.

The show will be rescheduled to August 28 – September 6, with the press days occurring August 26 – 27. New York International Auto Show officials say they will follow up with more information in the weeks ahead.
