    Saw an article in the Detroit Free Press, the NAIAS is moving to June in 2020 to take advantage of outdoor weather, and align itself better with the introduction of new models, as well as various outside demos...

    Glad the ME hopefully will be introduced at the 2019 show in January.. Otherwise it will be another long wait...to June of the following year!

      From NAIAS Press Release today:

      "The North American International Auto Show (NAIAS) announced that starting in 2020 the show would make a transformational move to June and will start the week of June 8th. The ability for participating brands to deliver dynamic exhibits and experiential opportunities outside of the show’s four walls for attending journalists, industry members and consumers, will provide new avenues to showcase the products and technologies on display. Delivering greater ROI through reduced costs and dynamic opportunities will be a key aspect of the future show.

      Our show is undergoing its most significant transformation in the last three decades,” said Rod Alberts, Executive Director, NAIAS. “Detroit will continue to be a global stage for some of the world’s most significant and iconic vehicle reveals and host an unparalleled international audience of media and key industry influencers.”

        I also saw this announcement on a national news network last night. My thoughts: Just as speculated by many on this forum. And, the voice of the manufactures who chose not to attend in January were heard.

        But....please tell me that we don't have to wait until June to see an unwrapped ME. I don't think that GM will be able sit on it that long though. They have been playing the "build the suspense" game for quite some time now as it is.

          The NAIAS move to June starts in the 2020 calendar year. As the 2020 MY year Corvette ME will be revealed at NAIAS next year, it still be require a trip to Detroit in winter — with that cold wind rushing down the Detroit River, usually lots of snow and below zero wind chills. But for the ME’s reveal, count me in!

            RedDropTop, imagine the venue they can hold with warm weather, so many events that can be held outside compared to none during the frosty days.

              I always hated that NAIAS was in January. It is so frigid cold!

              In 2017 I bought tickets for the Jan 2018 Charity Preview on the day they went on sale, hoping I would see the intro of the C8. That was back when people were saying it "Might" be there.

              But as we know, it wasn't. But I went anyway. Here is a picture of my date (cropped) in front of the latest C7.

              I will again fight the bitter cold this coming January, hoping to see the C8 at the Charity Preview.

              When NAIAS moves to June, the Charity Preview will no longer be formal wear, which I thought was a big part of what made it fun.

                  Flying in to Detroit in mid January is always a fun “adventure”. I lived there for two years, so I know what I am getting into, and while I too would prefer an alternative location, if NAIAS this coming January is when the ME is revealed, I will gladly sign up for another “experience.”

                  Let’s see a typical January NAIAS 8” snowfall (sometimes twice that), a temperature typically between 5 and 20 degrees (not counting the wind chill coming down the Detroit River which makes the wind chill around -10 (or worse) , and similar fun climatic conditions. For the C7 Z06 reveal, they “only” had to de-ice our plane twice before we took off to return home.

                  But I sure would rather head to Detroit in January for the ME’s reveal rather than having it be later elsewhere.
