The organizers of the New York Auto Show recently announced to the world that the New York Auto Show would be officially canceled.
The New York Auto Show was initially scheduled to be held in early April this year and was postponed to August due to the Covid-19 coronavirus pandemic. Last week, the organizers announced that the venue for the event had been requisitioned as a temporary hospital. Following the cancellation of this year’s auto show, the latest New York auto show will be held from April 2 to 11, 2021.
Mark Scheinberg, chairman of the New York Automobile Dealers Association, made a statement for the first time that a successful large new car exhibition would not be without the careful planning of the automobile manufacturer and its exhibition partners.
“The Association is responsible for running this 120-year-old Autoshow, and we do not think it would be wise to continue to hold it in 2020 due to the uncertainties caused by the virus.”
The Detroit Auto Show, scheduled for June, was canceled in March, and the Paris Auto Show, scheduled for late September-early October, was canceled due to the Covid-19.
