(Bloomberg) -- Sign up for Next China, a weekly email on where the nation stands now and where it's going next.

China’s annual auto show, which was scheduled to be held in Beijing in April, will be pushed back because of the novel coronavirus outbreak.

The new date for the Beijing International Automotive Exhibition, originally scheduled for April 21-30, will be announced at a later date, the organizer said in a statement Monday.

The postponement of the show in the world’s largest auto market is the latest high-profile conference to be shelved because of the epidemic. Credit Suisse Group AG pushed back its Asia investment conference and the government is considering delaying its political meeting for the first time in decades. It’s not just events in China being affected, with the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona canceled earlier this month because of the virus.
