Detroit Auto Show Returns to January For 2025

Detroit show back in January

  • Show has been plagued with problems since original move in 2020

  • Organizers decided winter is a great time to be inside in Detroit


The Detroit auto show is moving. Again. This time, the team running it is skipping 2024 completely and bringing the show back to the original date in January (of 2025).

The North American International Auto Show, the proper name for the Detroit show, was held in January for decades. It was the first show of the year, helping add some flash and glamour. It was also something to do in Detroit in the winter that wasn’t a Red Wings or Pistons game.

Then, in 2020, the doors fell off. The show’s organizers, the Detroit Area Dealers Association, planned to move the 2020 show from January to June, hoping to draw in more visitors and have more activities outside.

The venue the show was planning to use was a Covid field hospital in June of that year.

Plans for 2021 called to move it to September in 2021. That show was also canceled. 2022 and 2023 had shows, held in September, but they were largely ignored by automakers, media, and, more importantly, customers.

So now it’s back to January for 2025, taking this year off. The show will be held from Jan 10-20 at Huntington Place (formerly COBO Hall), the longtime home of the event.

“The Detroit Auto Show is pleased to announce the iconic show will return to its roots with a January 2025 debut,” said Rod Alberts, executive director of the Detroit auto show and the Detroit Auto Dealers Association, in a statement. “Our primary goal is to create an impactful auto show and showcase our great city and industry. After discussions with numerous partners, we believe a January date absolutely makes the most sense. In a constantly changing global automotive landscape, this update reflects our efforts to continue to reimagine the Detroit Auto Show with keeping an eye on what matters most — getting people excited about cars.”
