Detroit auto show extends contract at Cobo, confirms 2020 dates

The North American International Auto Show redrew its contract with Cobo Center as it gears up to switch from winter to summer in 2020.

The season change from winter to summer made a change in the auto show's contract with the downtown Detroit venue necessary, said Rod Alberts, executive director of the show and the entity that puts it on, the Detroit Auto Dealers Association.

The $7 million, seven-year deal through 2026 replaces an eight-year, approximately $11.8 million contract that had been signed in summer 2017 to last through 2025, said Claude Molinari, general manager of Cobo Center.
