We regret to announce the cancellation of the 2020 Columbus International Auto Show, which has become necessary in order to limit the spread of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) and comply with Governor Mike DeWine’s Executive Order prohibiting mass gatherings of more than 100 people. This Executive Order has become necessary to limit the spread of the Coronavirus (COVID-19), which has recently been declared a global pandemic by the World Health Organization.

 

As a result of these unforeseen circumstances beyond the control of the Columbus Automobile Dealers Association, the 2020 Columbus International Auto Show is cancelled.  Opportunities to reschedule will be evaluated in the coming weeks, but as of now, the show is cancelled.

 

The Auto Show Charity Gala slated for March 20 has also been cancelled.  In the coming weeks, we will reschedule this event.  The Columbus Automobile Dealers Association and its members understand how important the Gala is to our charities and the Columbus community and we plan to continue to support both.

 

Lastly, we applaud Governor DeWine for his decisive leadership.  His actions over the last week are clearly in the best interest of the health and welfare of the citizens of Ohio.  We understand no Governor wants to curb economic activity, but we commend his decision making given the circumstances.

 

CADA will reach out to vendors, exhibitors, and other third parties with additional information.
