Many auto shows have already been cancelled for the year, including the Geneva Motor Show. The New York International Auto Show has been postponed to late August. Organizers have canceled most of the activities surrounding Monterey Car Week, including the Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance.
These cancellations have put a pinch on automakers who traditionally use these events to debut new product.
