After the Geneva Motor Show at the beginning of the month, it is North American International Auto Show (NAIAS), or the Detroit Motor Show, which has just been canceled.
The famous American car show was in fact scheduled for next June and will ultimately not take place.
A hospital against the Detroit Motor Show
As you can imagine, it is the coronavirus epidemic that is raging around the world that is behind this new cancellation. The United States, like other countries, must manage very many infected patients.
So, after confirming the cancellation of the event, the organizers of the Detroit show announced that the place that had been chosen, namely the TCF Center, was to be transformed into a field hospital. The room will indeed be requisitioned by the health services to accommodate many patients.
For Rod Alberts, one of the NAIAS organizers: “ Although we are disappointed, there is nothing more important to us than the health, safety and well-being of the citizens of Detroit and Michigan. We will do what we can to support our community's fight against the coronavirus epidemic "
See you in June 2021
For the record, the Detroit show is usually held in January, but for this 2020 edition, the event had been postponed to June to avoid entering into direct competition with other events and to allow the establishment of activities, such as driving sessions for example.
It will therefore be necessary to be patient to be able to walk the aisles of the Detroit salon again, since the next edition is scheduled for June 2021. Remember that the New York Salon was postponed until the end of the month August.
