The New York International Auto Show has been canceled for the second year in a row. The event, which was scheduled for Aug. 20-29, has closed its doors due to concerns over the spread of the Delta variant of COVID-19 and the increased prevention measures announced recently by N.Y. state and local officials. 

“The COVID pandemic has challenged our City, the country and the entire world, but just like the automobile industry, we know that the New York Auto Show will rebound and be bigger and better than before," said Mark Schienberg, president of the New York Auto Show, in a recent press release. "Over the past few weeks, and especially within the last few days, circumstances have changed making it more difficult to create an event at the high standard that we and our clients expect.”

The show, which has been around for 121 years, plans on returning to its regular spring schedule in April 2022.
