What to Expect from the 2022 Detroit Auto Show

August 12th, 2022 by

Since its debut in 1899, the North American International Auto Show, AKA NAIAS, has risen to the top of the hierarchy of automobile events. The show has long been known for its exquisite cars, elaborative showcases, and a seemingly never-ending thirst for technological advancement in all fields related to automobiles. This year, 2022,  the Detroit Auto Show will be held at the Huntington Place (formerly TCF Center) in Detroit, Michigan with anticipated and exciting significant show changes.

Back in Business

After the 2018 Detroit Auto Show, the organizers announced that the event would be held in June the following year instead of January, which was the usual month in which the event took place. After a multi-year hiatus, now the time has finally come to showcase the best vehicles in the world today.

Now that the event’s back in business, what should we expect? The Detroit Auto Show has always been a platform for manufacturers to showcase their newest models and give car lovers a go at riding them. On the other end, attendees usually made important decisions during the event, deciding what car to go with. In total, the event has always been a blast for everyone involved.

First of all, the show had transformed its branding to represent the future of the industry. The new logo, with its blue and green color palette, aims to indicate what direction the industry is moving forward in, namely, towards clean and new energies.

The event is also known for its black-tie charity event, which has raised over $112 million since its start in 1976. The Charity Preview is one of the most successful one-night charity events to ever exist; in fact, it’s the most successful one-night charity event in the country.

The most exciting news is that most of the events are planned to take place outdoors. In fact, this is the first indoor/outdoor Detroit Auto Show. The show is happening in September, and that means taking advantage of the great weather.

The show kicks off at Huntington Place, downtown Detroit, Michigan, with Media Day on September 14, 2022, which is then followed by Industry Tech Days/AutoMobili-D on September 14-15, 2022.
