The North American International Auto Show (NAIAS) announced it will cancel its June 2020 show in Detroit in light of the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic and the Federal Emergency Management Agency’s expected plans to repurpose the show’s site, the TCF Center, into a temporary field hospital. 

“One of the hallmarks of NAIAS since the very beginning has been our commitment to being socially responsible,” said Rod Alberts, NAIAS executive director. “Our thoughts continue to be with those whose lives have been impacted by this devastating virus. And, we support the city and state’s mission to help preserve life in the face of this challenging situation.”

NAIAS will hold its next annual show in June 2021. Doug North, chairman of the 2020 NAIAS, said show officials are also discussing plans for a fundraising activity later this year to benefit the children’s charities that were designated as beneficiaries of the 2020 Charity Preview event.     

The NAIAS sponsorship team will also be in contact with each sponsor directly to answer questions regarding refunds and their contracts. The ’20 NAIAS was to be Detroit’s first summertime auto show after years of holding the event in January.
