Move ‘Downtown’ Emphasises Cultural Focus of 43rd Annual Event
TRAVERSE CITY, Mich., July 1, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — Hagerty today announced plans to host next year’s 43rd annual Concours d’Elegance of America in Detroit in September 2022. The hub of the multi-location experience will be the Detroit Institute of Arts, the cultural epicenter of the country’s automotive capital. This year’s event takes place July 23-25 at the Inn at St. John’s in Plymouth, its host for a decade. Further details on the event’s 2022 plans, including show dates, will be announced in the months prior.
“We’re announcing two meaningful changes today – rescheduling from July to September and repositioning from the suburbs to downtown,” said McKeel Hagerty, CEO of Hagerty. “This move honors Detroit’s heritage as a hub of commerce, industry, design and culture. We couldn’t think of a better place to recognize the automobile than the Detroit Institute of Arts. It, and its 65,000 works of art, serve as the perfect backdrop as we celebrate the automobile – another signature achievement of mankind.”
This year, Hagerty announced that two events – the Amelia Island Concours d’Elegance and Concours of America – would join its growing portfolio of premiere events, including the California Mille and Greenwich Concours d’Elegance. Hagerty takes part in more than 2,500 car events annually.
