New York Auto Show still decided to cancelMay 24, 2020
An auto show will take place at best in April next year.
A car dealership in New York, which had previously been rescheduled from April to August due to a coronavirus pandemic, was eventually decided to be rescheduled to next year.
According to the publication Automotive News, the New York Auto Show still decided to cancel. In March it was announced that the auto show traditionally scheduled for April in New York would not take place due to a pandemic, but the organizers promised to hold an event in August or September of this year. Now, these plans are not destined to come true: in 2020, the car dealership will not take place. The main reason is the decision of the American authorities to redesign the Jacob Javitsa Exhibition Center on 11th Avenue in Manhattan into a field hospital. He has not yet received patients, but is in constant readiness.
Uncertainty in the near future due to the pandemic of the coronavirus infection, and the US government moratorium on holding mass events also played a role. Due to the fact that manufacturers need to plan participation in events in advance, it was decided to transfer the New York Auto Show to April 2–11, 2021. The Auto Show in New York is one of the oldest in the world: it has been held on a regular basis since 1900 and was last canceled only during World War II. This year, automakers are going to present to the public more than 50 new products.
