It’s been three years since the New York International Auto Show took place, but it’s not for lack of trying. In 2020, show organizers postponed the traditionally springtime event to August. However, the coronavirus showed no signs of slowing, and the auto show was outright canceled in May. At the time, the Javits Convention Center, the event’s homebase, was converted into a field hospital for COVID-19 patients.
With emergency room visits down and vaccination rates up, the show attempted another August event in 2021. But that, too, was canceled just two weeks prior to opening day. Third time’s the charm, it seems, as the 2022 show — now back to its Easter-week roots — has been going ahead as scheduled, running through Sunday, April 24.
