Statement from the organizers of the 2020 New York International Auto Show
NEW YORK, Feb. 28, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — The Greater New York Automobile Dealers Association, organizers of the New York International Auto Show, extends its deepest regrets to the organizers of the Geneva International Motor Show after hearing today’s news that their 2020 event has been canceled due to spread of the coronavirus in Europe. As a small family of global auto shows, our thoughts remain with the Swiss organizers. We are equally compassionate for the world’s automakers who have been impacted by this unforeseen set of circumstances.
With just under six weeks to go before the 2020 New York International Auto Show’s press preview days, we are moving forward with plans to open the Show as scheduled. We are in communication with state and local officials and the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center, and, at this point, there are no plans to cancel any shows at the facility. The Javits Center is taking precautionary measures inside the venue to help prevent the spread of respiratory viruses, and the New York Auto Show will follow its lead to protect exhibitors and attendees.

With five weeks to go before the 2020 New York International Auto Show’s press preview days (April 8 & 9), organizers are moving forward with plans to open the Show as scheduled. We are in communication with state and local officials and the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center, and, at this point, there are no plans to cancel any shows at the facility due to coronavirus.

PRECAUTIONS AT THE JAVITS CENTER
The Javits Center is committed to protecting the well-being of its visitors, customers, employees and business partners. During every flu season, Javits staff implements a set of protocols designed to prevent communicable sicknesses, and in light of the recent novel coronavirus, efforts have increased significantly.
In recent weeks, the Javits Center has:
- Installed 70 hand-sanitizing stations throughout the convention center to allow visitors to clean their hands more frequently;
- Increased the cleaning of high-volume, high-touch areas, including paper towel dispensers, vanity tops, counters and door handles;
- Maintained a team of specially trained paramedics on site during all open event hours and access to a fully equipped first-aid station on site;
- Engaged with health departments at the city, state and federal levels to ensure we receive the latest updates and protocols; and
- Distributed critical information among key staff members and business partners to help prevent communicable sicknesses throughout the venue.
The Auto Show has implemented new standards for all vehicle detailing companies providing services for the event. Those measures include the use of disinfectant cleaning agents and increased frequency.
