The organizers of the Beijing Motor Show rescheduled the event from September 26 to October 5 instead of the original plan from April 21 to 30. As expected, the COVID-19 pandemic is causing a delay in the event.

In light of the serious problems caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, after close consultations with the relevant parties, the organizers, on behalf of the Beijing International Auto Show 2020 Organizing Committee (AUTO CHINA 2020), decided to postpone the auto show, which was originally planned at the new and old venues of the China International Exhibition Center ( CIEC) in April this year to effectively protect the health and safety of participants and spectators. AUTO CHINA 2020 is postponed to the next date – from September 26 to October 5, 2020.

The decision follows a similar choice from other major automotive events. Organizers canceled a Detroit auto show to turn Cobo Hall into a temporary hospital for treating patients with coronavirus. The leaders decided to turn the Paris Motor Show into a business-oriented event. In addition, the Goodwood Festival of Speed ​​moved indefinitely to late summer or early fall.

The COVID-19 pandemic began in the Chinese province of Hubei. Authorities are starting to rediscover quarantine zones, but according to Automotive News, there is concern that a second outbreak could occur because people will again be able to move more freely.
