The 2020 North American International Auto Show Is Cancelled Due To Covid-19


The 2020 North American International Auto Show [NAIAS] held in Detroit in June, has been cancelled due to the ongoing coronavirus outbreak. 2020 NAIAS Executive Director Rod Alberts said the TCF Center [where the show was to be held] will instead be used as a temporary hospital space to handle victims of the virus.

“With the more than 100 convention centers and facilities around the country being considered to potentially serve as temporary hospitals, it became clear to us that TCF Center would be an inevitable option to serve as a care facility to satisfy our community’s urgent health needs,” explained Alberts.

All tickets purchased for the 2020 NAIAS show, including tickets for the Public Show, Industry Preview and Charity Preview will be fully refunded. Charity Preview ticket holders will be given the option of a refund, or the opportunity to donate the proceeds of their refund to one of the nine designated Charity Preview beneficiaries. The NAIAS ticket office will be in contact with all ticket holders.

The 2021 NAIAS show is expected to to be held and the dates for the 2021 event are as follows:

Motor Bella: Friday, June 11 – Monday, June 14
The Gallery: Monday, June 14
Press Preview: Tuesday, June 15 – Wednesday, June 16
