The North American International Auto Show (NAIAS) has announced it will not hold its 2021 auto show as planned. Instead, show officials revealed a "bridge to the future" with an auto-centric event called Motor Bella. The new event will bring "next-generation mobility and exciting vehicle debuts to media, show-goers and the automotive enthusiasts' world in a never before experienced way" the statement says, while also addressing continued COVID-19 concerns about indoor events. Motor Bella is scheduled to be held from September 21 to 26, 2021, at the M1 Concourse in Pontiac, Michigan. "The pandemic has caused changes in our society and world in ways not previously imagined, and we all should be looking for new and highly creative ways of doing business," said Executive Director Rod Alberts.
