2020 New York Auto Show Rescheduled to Late August

Extraordinary circumstances call for extraordinary measures: NYIAS is moved to late August.

  • Ongoing health concerns have forced organizers to put off the NYIAS.
  • New dates for press days will be: August 26 & 27, 2020.

It wasn’t a matter of if but when this was going to happen. The COVID-19 or Coronavirus outbreak is forcing countless events to be cancelled or postponed. More specifically, press days for the 2020 editon of the New York Auto Show will be held on August 26 & 27 while the main show floor will open to the public on August 28th and run until the 6th of September.

President of the Greater New York Automobile Dealers Association, the organization that owns and operates the New York Auto Show, had the following to say about the decision: “We are taking this extraordinary step to help protect our attendees, exhibitors and all participants from the coronavirus,”

He added that: “For 120 years, ‘the show must go on’ has been heavily embedded in our DNA, and while the decision to move the show dates didn’t come easy, our top priority remains with the health and well-being of all those involved in this historic event. We have already been in communication with many of our exhibitors and partners and are confident that the new dates for the 2020 Show will make for another successful event.”

This move will change numerous product reveal plans for OEMs once more. With the Geneva Motor Show suffering a complete cancellation and now, the NYIAS moving to late summer, carmakers will either postpone their reveals or organize virtual press conferences as they did only last week. It will also mean that plans for further introductions during the 2020 calendar will need to be modified if they intend to attend the 2020 NYIAS in late August.
