Organizers for the Los Angeles Auto Show have confirmed the November dates for the show’s return following a year-long hiatus brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic.
This year’s edition of the Los Angeles Auto Show was previously set to be held from May 19th to May 31st, however organizers were forced to reschedule the show for this fall as the pandemic continued to affect the area. Now organizers have confirmed the show will go ahead on November 19th to the 28th, with media days scheduled for November 17th and 18th.
“We are proud to be an integral part of LA culture and a must-attend event on the calendar,” Lisa Kaz, owner and CEO of the LA Auto Show, said in a prepared statement. “With California and LA County opening up, we’re committed to delivering a knock-out show to give SoCal an experience to look forward to and a dynamic environment for automakers and lifestyle brands to inform and entertain in”
The last LA Auto Show was held in late 2019, just a handful of months before the COVID-19 pandemic took hold in North America. Organizers had planned to host the event on November 18th to the 29th of last year, however they were forced to cancel the show amid the pandemic’s third wave.
With vaccines now widely available to most U.S. citizens, the auto show circuit looks set for a return to normal. In addition to LA, the New York Auto Show will also return, with public show days scheduled for August 19th to the 29th. The North American International Auto Show in Detroit was previously set to be held in the summer as well, but it has now been indirectly replaced by the outdoor-only Motor Bella show, which will be held between September 21st and September 26th.
