The organisers have said that this year the Detroit Auto Show will take place in both indoor and outdoor formats. While the indoor activities will be there at the Huntington Place convention centre, outdoor displays will take place around downtown Detroit.
In 2020, the organisers planned to move the show to June. However, it was finally cancelled. Later the organisers planned for September 2021 but that too got cancelled. Instead, it was replaced with the six-day Motor Bella event 20 miles outside Detroit.
The auto industry witnessed the cancellation of several global events in the last two years due to the pandemic and Detroit Auto Show were among them. Apart from that Paris Motor Show, Geneva Motor Show too were cancelled.
This year, Delhi Auto Expo too has been cancelled. The biennial automotive event was supposed to take place in February this year. However, the event was cancelled due to the pandemic in order to avoid congestion at the venue. The last time the Delhi Auto Expo took place was in February 2020.
