Detroit Auto Show Aiming For September Date in 2022

Detroit show wants to be back in the fall

  • Show hasn’t been held since 2019

  • Premier auto show has been juggling schedule since 2019


Detroit area new car dealers are taking another shot at the North American International Auto Show, setting a date this year for September 14 through the 25th. The Detroit auto show has been in turmoil even before the pandemic as the group that runs it attempts to balance business needs with finding a time consumers actually want to leave their homes.

The show, traditionally the first auto show of the calendar year, was held in early January – a spot it has owned for decades. In July 2018, organizers the Detroit Auto Dealers Association announced plans to move it from January to June beginning in 2020. That show was cancelled due to the pandemic, 2021’s show was also cancelled, with a smaller enthusiast event called Motor Bella held in September instead.

The show must, however, go on, and organizers are planning a September date once again, Automotive News reports. The show will move to Detroit’s Huntington Place convention center with displays expected around the city’s downtown, both indoors and out.

Executive Director of DADA, Rod Alberts, confirmed the dates earlier today during presentations awarding the 2022 North American Car, Truck and Utility Vehicle of the Year awards presentation. Those awards were traditionally handed out at the Detroit show.
