2021 Detroit Auto Show canceled due to coronavirus concerns
The North American Auto Show 2021 planned for Detroit in September has been canceled due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
The marquee event, which did not take place in 2020, had previously been postponed from its originally planned dates in June.
Instead of the traditional show that was supposed to take place in the TCF Center, a smaller and shorter outdoor event will take place at the M1 Concourse Motorsport Club and on the Pontiac circuit.
“The pandemic has caused changes in our society and world in ways previously unimaginable and we should all be looking for new and extremely creative ways to do business,” Managing Director Rod Alberts said in a press release. “This new event captures this creative spirit. It offers new mobility experiences and increasingly innovative approaches to develop the industry and its products.”

The Chicago Auto Show, originally scheduled for February, is the next big event on the auto show calendar, but organizers are trying to postpone it sometime in the spring. The Los Angeles Auto Show and New York Auto Show are currently scheduled for May and August, respectively.
