The next North American International Auto Show will not be held until September 2021.

The show was originally scheduled for June 2021 after the 2020 show was cancelled due to COVID-19. It was to be the first NAIAS to be held in the summer instead of in January like in years past.

“We have talked with many of our partners, particularly the OEMs, and they are fully on board and excited about the date change,” NAIAS Executive Director Rod Alberts said.

The NAIAS will remain a fall show going forward with dates secured at the TCF Centre for the next three years.

“Our responsibility as an auto show is to host a global stage for current products as well as mobility innovations of tomorrow,” Alberts said. “September is an excellent time of year for new product, and at the same time, alleviates the challenges a now crowded spring auto show calendar presents for auto show stakeholders.”

The auto show will continue to highlight current products as well as new concepts from the world’s top automakers.

“With seasonable autumn temperatures and technology and experiential activations positioned throughout the city, show visitors will be able to enjoy fall in a walkable, vibrant Motor City while embracing the future of the industry right before their eyes,” 2021 NAIAS Chairman Doug North said.

The show is scheduled to take place from September 28- October 9, 2021.
