New York Auto Show
The havoc of Coronavirus is not taking its name to end. Last year many big events were canceled to prevent virus infection, while this process is still going on. This time the fear has increased even more because of the Delta variant. Under this, precautions have also been taken. Recently, the COVID-19 pandemic has once again forced the organizers of the 2021 New York Auto Show to cancel this year’s program.
The organizers announced that the biggest concern is the spread of the delta variant of the COVID-19 pandemic which has forced them to call off this year’s show as well. New York Auto Show President Mark Schisenberg issued a statement Wednesday saying, “All signs were positive and the show was coming together stronger than ever, but today is a different story. One reason for the show to be closed is because of the measures announced by state and local authorities in Manhattan to protect people from the coronavirus.”
Plan to show 1,000 vehicles
The Annual Auto Fest is organized by the Greater New York Automobile Dealers Association. This year the event was scheduled to begin on August 19 at Jacob’s Javits Convention Center in New York City. It plans to showcase around 1,000 vehicles spread over 1 million square feet of exhibition space.
The Javits Center was being used as a field hospital for COVID-19 patients last year. This forced the organizers to skip the 2020 show and instead postponed it to April 2021. The show was postponed till August before its cancellation was announced.
This is the second year in a row that the 121-year-old New York Auto Show has been canceled due to the pandemic. The marquee event, which started in 1990, was canceled in 2020 for the first time since World War II. The organizers had decided to postpone the event till August over coronavirus concerns. Now, the organizers are hopeful that if the COVID-19 situation improves, the auto show will return in April next year.
