The New York International Auto Show has been canceled for 2020, the event's organizers announced on Friday.




The show was initially postponed to August from its usual April date, but is now called off entirely due to the ongoing pandemic.




The NYIAS' venue, Manhattan's Jacob K. Javits Convention Center, remains outfitted as a COVID-19 field hospital, although no patients are currently being treated there.

The 2020 New York International Auto Show has officially been called off, the show's organizers announced on Friday.
The event, one of the largest auto shows of the year, is normally held in April and was initially postponed to August amid the COVID-19 pandemic. Its venue, Manhattan's Jacob K. Javits Convention Center, was converted into a field hospital to treat coronavirus patients in late March.
With New York City past its coronavirus apex for now, the 2,500-bed Javits Center field hospital currently has no patients. But the venue is still closed and the hospital remains in "standby mode," causing the Greater New York Automobile Dealers Association — which owns and runs the show — to cancel this year's NYIAS entirely.
