The North American International Auto Show (NAIAS) announced that it will hold its reimagined indoor and outdoor show from Sept. 28 through Oct. 9, 2021. The show was originally slated for summer 2021.

“We have talked with many of our partners, particularly the OEMs, and they are fully on board and excited about the date change,” NAIAS Executive Director Rod Alberts said in a statement.

Moreover, this move is expected to be permanent, as NAIAS has booked dates with the TCF Center for the next three years, according to organizers.

“Our responsibility as an auto show is to host a global stage for current products as well as mobility innovations of tomorrow … September is an excellent time of year for new product, and at the same time, alleviates the challenges a now crowded spring auto show calendar presents for auto show stakeholders,” Alberts said.

He added, “Spreading out major auto shows is a win for everyone, particularly our partners. It gives auto companies an opportunity to give it their best at each and every show, which creates excitement for those who attend, too.”

Here are the new dates:

Motor Bella: Sept. 24-26
The Gallery: Sept. 26
Press Preview: Sept. 28-29
AutoMobili-D: Sept. 28-30
Industry Preview: Sept. 29-30
Charity Preview: Oct. 1
Public Show: Oct. 2-9
