New York International Auto Show Moves To August 2021

The 2021 edition of the NYIAS gets pushed back again dues to the ongoing pandemic


  • Press day will be August 19th.

  • Public days will be from August 20th to the 29th.

  • It was rescheduled to April until now.


Auto show organizers are struggling to keep their events going. The ongoing COVID-19 pandemic is making their jobs extremely complicated, especially when considering that case numbers are on the rise in the US and Canada. For at least the fourth time this year, the New York show dates have changed – let’s hope it’s the last time.

NYIAS organizers first moved the show to August of 2020, then canceled the 2020 edition altogether. Following this decision, the 2021 NYIAS event was to take place during its usual April dates however it seems unlikely, and unwise, to plan such a large gathering of people only next spring given the current circumstances.

As of now, the 2021 edition of the New York International Auto Show is scheduled to be held at the newly expanded Javits Center between August 19th and 29th next year.

We continue to wonder what will happen to the current auto show format if the pandemic and related safety measures carry on much longer…

The NYIAS is America’s first and largest attended auto show. It opened its doors back in November 1900.
