The Austin Auto Show has gone the way of the New York International Auto Show and North American International Auto Show. Its 2020 version has been cancelled.
Originally slated for April 17-19, organizers have opted to not have a make up date later in the year. Instead, the show will go on next year – April 9-11, 2021.
The annual event is organized by the Austin Automobile Dealers Association, which has been around since 1946. Like other auto shows around the country, the Austin event serves as a way for attendees to cross-shop vehicles all in one place, often without the hassle of dealing with sales personnel.
A recent study by Capital One found that 74 percent of shoppers do not describe themselves as confident car shoppers. Cars.com research indicates that potential car buyers would rather clean toilets than go through the hassle of buying a car from a dealership.
The 2021 Austin Auto Show will be held at the Austin Convention Center and will be open to the public from morning until night on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. Ticket pricing has yet to be announced.
