After first postponing the 2020 show dates, organizers of the New York International Auto Show have decided the next show will take place April 2-11, 2021, with press days on March 31 & April 1.

The Jacob K. Javits Convention Center, originally scheduled to host the event, continues to be closed for all expo business due to its role as a field hospital for COVID-19 cases.

The show, originally scheduled for last month, was  initially postponed to late summer, but organizers pulled the plug for 2020.

“Since the beginning of this pandemic, we have worked closely with the Governor’s office and with Javits officials to protect our attendees,”

said Mark Schienberg, president of the Greater New York Automobile Dealers Association, the organization that owns and operates the New York Auto Show. “We also understand the immense planning needed for the automakers and their exhibit partners to construct a show of this magnitude. Because of the uncertainty caused by the virus, we feel it would not be prudent to continue with the 2020 show and instead are preparing for an even greater 2021.”
