North American International Auto Show Announces 2022 Dates

January 11, 2022

The North American International Auto Show on Tuesday said the 2022 show will take place Sept. 14-25 in downtown Detroit.

Rod Alberts, executive director of the Detroit Auto Dealers Association and the NAIAS, confirmed the dates during the 2022 North American Car, Truck and Utility Vehicle of the Year awards presentation. Media/tech days will take place Sept. 14-15, the Charity Preview is scheduled for Sept. 16 and public days will run Sept. 17-25.

The Detroit Regional Chamber and MichAuto are proud to support the NAIAS. In 2019 Chamber President and Chief Executive Officer Sandy K. Baruah discussed in a letter why the event was so important to the region:

“NAIAS is as synonymous to the Motor City as Lafayette or American Coney Island. The auto show is the epitome of Detroit and Michigan’s automobility leadership and innovative spirit. From the cool car unveils to catching a glimpse of tomorrow’s technology rapidly being developed and deployed in Michigan, no other event captures the excitement and transformation taking place in the industry.

One of the most influential global automotive events, NAIAS touches all facets of the industry and attracts the largest concentration of the world’s top industry leaders – from automakers and suppliers, to tech startups and venture capitalists, to universities and policymakers. Last year alone, more than 809,161 people attended the show over its two-week run. The economic impact to our city and region: an estimated $480 million.”

Alberts said that the show would take place in Detroit’s Huntington Place convention center and around downtown Detroit with indoor and outdoor interactive displays. The city has been without one of its signature events since January 2019.
