The New York Auto Show Has Been Pushed Back to August Amid Coronavirus Concerns

Just over a week after the Geneva Motor Show was abruptly canceled due to Coronavirus concerns, organizers for the New York Auto Show, the next upcoming major auto show for 2020, have delayed the event until late August.

In a statement released via email Tuesday, organizers said press days for the show will now take place on August 26 and 27, 2020. The show will open to the public starting September 6.

Originally, the New York Auto Show—Road & Track’s home show—was supposed to start with media days on April 8 and 9, with the show opening to the public on April 10. Just one week ago, organizers sent out a statement saying the show was still on as previously scheduled, claiming it had upped cleanliness precautions at the Javits Convention Center.
