Detroit Auto Show Moves To June Instead of October

By  | 

After a few big-time automakers decided to skip NAIAS in favor of the other shows around the same period of time, it was speculated that the show could be moved to the end of the year but it looks like we might see if the move to June now thanks to GM.

According to Detroit News, GM pitches the idea that the show should be held in June. That way, the show could share the limelight with the Chevrolet Detroit Grand Prix Presented By Lear which happens every year in June.

While that might sound like a good idea for many, there are also a few more things that NAIAS will have to figure out first. For one, Cobo Center calendar will be fuller during that time which means it will be harder for NAIAS to set things up. Others pointed out that on a hot day, the convention center might not be capable of cooling down the whole place especially with so many people attending. Parking could also be a huge issue if they were to combine it with the Grand Prix.

We will still have to wait and see what NAIAS decide to do. Which timeframe do you think would be perfect for them?
